The Celkon Win 400 has dethroned the Microsoft Lumia 530 to become the cheapest WP8.1 smartphone as this latest launch in India comes bearing a price tag of just Rs 4999. The Nokia-branded phone has been available for around Rs 5500, making it just Rs 500 more than the former.
Well, the difference in the retail tags is minimum and both phones offer similar features. The Celkon Win 400 is of course an entry-level release and for the amount being asked, you do get some good hardware. The device is powered by a 1.2GHz quad core Snapdragon 200 SOC and has 512MB of RAM.
Where memory is concerned, there’s 4GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot. But unlike the Nokia phone which accepts up to 128GB cards, this one only supports 32GB. A 4-inch WVGA display occupies the front along with a 1.3MP snapper. And the camera on the rear is rated at 5MP and it has an LED flash which is a nice addition.
The Celkon phone also accepts dual SIM slots and offers 3G connectivity. Windows Phone 8.1 runs the show, but there’s no confirmation on whether it comes with the latest enhancements which Lumia phones currently enjoy. Lastly, the battery capacity is 1500mAh and it can deliver a mere 5 hours of talk time or up to 200 hours of standby.
