Two new budget quad-core Android smartphones will soon be arriving in the Indian market, the Karbonn Titanium S1 and Titanium S5.
Snapdeal has today announced the availability of two new Android phones, the Karbonn Titanium S1 and Karbonn Titanium S5. Both phones are aimed at the budget market thanks to their competitive pricing, and feature Android 4.1 Jelly Bean along with dual-SIM capabilities. The Titanium S1 (Rs. 10,290) will ship in 3 business days, while the Titanium S5 (Rs. 11,990) will ship in 12 business days.
The Karbonn Titanium S5 (a.k.a Smart Titanium S5), the more expensive of the two features a quad-core 1.2GHz processor along with 1GB of RAM. The display is a 5-inch panel, with a resolution of 960x540 pixels (qHD). The feature set on the 8.95mm-thick phone is pretty decent for the price, given that it ships with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean right out of the box. It has an 8MP rear camera and a 2MP shooter in the front. Interestingly, there is no internal storage on the phone, but it does have the provision for a microSD card slot. The Titanium S5 has a 2000mAh battery, but Karbonn has not provided talktime and standby time figures.
The Karbonn Titanium S1 (a.k.a Smart Titanium S1) also runs the same 1.2GHz quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM, but features a smaller 4.5 inch IPS screen, which retains the qHD resolution. The camera also gets a slight pixel downgrade from the S5, going down from 8MP to 5MP in the S1. It features a VGA front camera. The 9.25mm-thick S1 also has a smaller 1600mAh battery as compared to the S5, rated to deliver 4 hours of talktime, and 200 hours of standby time.
The price difference between Karbonn Titanium S1 and S5 is quite minimal, which is understandable seeing as the only specification difference between the two phones is their screen size, the camera and the battery capacity. If you’re in the market for some decently spec’d budget Android phones, the Karbonn Titanium S1 and Titanium S5 might be good choices.
The two new Karbonn Smart Titanium smartphones feature a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core CPU based on the MSM8225Q SoC, and Adreno 203 GPU. The other budget quad-core phones recently introduced in India, the Micromax A116 Canvas HD, WickedLeak Wammy Passion, Lava Xolo Q800 and Jiayu G4.
We will give your recommendation only once we’ve reviewed the two new Karbonn Titanium smartphones.
