Karbonn Mobiles is all set to launch a full-HD smartphone in the Indian market. The smartphone is dubbed Karbonn Titanium S6 and is expected to launch in the second week of July.
Speaking exclusively to NDTV Gadgets, Pradeep Jain, Managing Director of Karbonn Mobiles shared that this smartphone will be attractively priced. Though the exact price of this smartphone has not been revealed as of now, but he indicated that it will be under Rs. 20,000. Jain added, "Our aim at Karbonn is not to provide the cheapest smartphone is the category but a quality product in the market. We have done that with our past products and we will continue to do the same with Titanium S6."
Just like the other smartphones in the Karbonn Titanium range, this smartphone too will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. Karbonn Titanium S6 will also come with a stylus much like Samsung Galaxy Note devices. This smartphone is also expected to run on Android Jelly Bean.
