Spice has added yet another budget Android smartphone to its portfolio. The device is called the Smart Flo Pace2 Mi-502 and is priced at Rs. 6,999 and is available online on Saholic.com. This isn’t the first 5-inch smartphone to launch from Spice. We have seen the Spice Stellar Pinnacle Pro Mi-535 which runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean straight out of the box so it is a little disappointing to see the Smart Flo Pace2 Mi-502 running Android 4.0 ICS.
The Smart Flo Pace2 Mi-502 has a 5-inch WVGA (800x480 pixel) display. It boasts of dual-SIM capabilities (2G 2G) and is 9.6mm thick. It has a 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM and 512MB ROM. The storage can be expanded up to 32GB via a microSD card slot. The rear of the smartphone has a 5MP camera and the front has a 1.3MP camera for video calling. It also supports Wi-Fi and Edge along with Bluetooth and FM radio. A 2100mAh battery powers the smartphone, which Spice claims will last for more than 5 hours of talk time and up to 280 hours standby time.
Commenting on the launch, Mr. T M Ramakrishnan, CEO – Devices, S Mobility Ltd said, “With the launch of Smart Flo Pace 2, we seek to offer better & advanced features at a competitive pricing. This product positions itself as a premium budget phone with enhanced features and better than what competition is offering. We are encouraged by the response to our previous 2G as well as 3G smartphones and this launch reflects our belief in constant innovation and customer delight.”
If you are in the market to pick up a smartphone under the Rs. 7,000 price tag, you can also take a look at the LG Optimus L3 Dual, Micromax Canvas Viva A72, Xolo A500, and Nokia Asha 311, among others.
