A price tag for the Karbonn A6 in India has been displayed through Snapdeal and it reads at a meager amount of Rs. 5,390. Surprisingly, no other retailer seems to have the device in stock as of now, giving the impression that it is an exclusive launch.
The quick release of the A6 smartphone leads us to believe that the company seems to follow a strict adherence to time especially since this is the third device that has been brought forth in a span of less than 10 days, the previous two being the Titanium S5 and the Retina A27. Considering the asking amount, the maker has managed to pack in passable specifications.
Speaking of the external details, the handset sports a 4-inch display that possesses a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. Placed strategically above the touchscreen, there lies a front-facing auxiliary camera that can be used to capture self-portraits. The primary option for clicking pictures and taking videos is a 5MP lens that is nestled on the rear and it comes with features for multi-shot and brightness level adjustments. The chassis is built around dimensions measuring 128mm x 65.7mm x 11.6mm and it weighs down the scales at just 114.5 grams, without the battery inserted.
On the inside, the manufacturer has chosen the Ice Cream Sandwich platform to run the show. A 1GHz chipset keeps the pace going forward and it seeks assistance from 512MB of RAM to carry out its functions. 104MB of internal memory would pose as a major let-down, but the maker has tried to compensate for it by providing a microSD slot that can support cards up to 32GB. The 1450mAh battery shoulders the burden of making sure that the phone renders a talktime of 3.5 hours or a standby time of approximately 250 hours.
In the rare occurrence of prospective buyers finding it difficult to cough up the entire sum required for the Karbonn A6, Snapdeal gives the option of procuring the device through EMI payments. Installments can be paid over 3 or 6 months at Rs. 1,796 or Rs. 898, respectively.
