Till now, we have seen a couple of Android 4.4 smartphones launching in the market and among those smartphones, a few got the KitKat update, but can you imagine a phone with the latest Android version update carrying a pricetag of 2999 INR, right? Yes, Celkon, an Indian phone manufacturer has launched their latest phone Celkon Campus A35K in the market, KitKat ready, essential feature packed and a low-budget smartphone.
The phone is now available online via the e-commerce site Snapdeal. The Celkon A35K is a dual SIM smartphone unlike any other budget Android smartphone in India, but have a powerful 1GHz processor. Though, we guess that some people will not be impressed with the RAM as it has only 256 MB RAM. The smartphone has a 3.5-inch display with 320 x 480 pixels resolution. The Celkon Campus A35K has a 3.2MP primary snapper with LED flash and a VGA front-facing camera. It has 512MB internal memory, which can be further expanded upto 32GB via microSD. Connectivity options include GPRS, EDGE, 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, microUSB and GPS. It is powered by a 1,400 mAh battery. In short, the phone is feature packed enough at such a price-tag and we can expect it to be successful as an everyday use secondary smartphone.
