There is a new member to the Swipe Konnect range which the company believes is enough feature packed to unsettle even the established players. Christened Swipe Konnect Plus, the biggest plus with the handset is its super affordable price tag of just Rs. 4,999 while still offering features that any mid-size handset comes to offer in the 5-inch HD IPS/2 GB RAM/16 GB ROM segment. No wonder Swipe is eager to peg its new Konnect Plus device as among the most affordable currently available in the country.
Swipe Konnect Plus Specs
To begin with, the Konnect Plus comes powered by a 1.2 GHZ Quad-Core processor (make not specified) that works in conjugation with 2 GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage. There is a microSD card slot as well that allows for the addition of another 32 GB.
Further, as has already been mentioned, a 5-inch HD display makes up the front though the company didn’t reveal in the press release if it has 720 pixels or a full 1080p. However, it is the former that seems plausible considering the price it is selling for. Also, the extremely thin bezel width, as is evident from the image provided also makes the Konnect Plus quite a looker of a device.
For the shutterbugs, the Konnect Plus comes with a 13MP rear facing cam while a 5MP camera adorns at the front. Power comes from a 3000 mAhbattery which, it must be said is quite generous and is better than many a handset that sells for twice the price. Exact run times aren’t available at the moment though it should be more than enough to run through an entire day of even rough usage, if not more.
The Konnect Plus runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop right out of the box. However, it is not known if it will come with support for Android Marshmallow which would be really nice for a smartphone at this price point.
“Swipe believes in disrupting the market with offering more and better for less. Our latest creation Konnect Plus is the most affordable among all 5”/2GB/16GB smartphones available in the market today,” said Mr. Shripal Gandhi, Founder and CEO of Swipe Technologies. No other smartphone maker in India offers these specs at the price we are proposing at!”
Swipe Konnect Plus Connectivity and Release Date
Meanwhile, connectivity options with the Konnect Plus include Wi-Fi, GPS, FM, and Bluetooth. A data cable, along with AC power adaptor comes bundled with the handset though not a headphone.
Swipe stated the Konnect Plus will be available exclusively from Snapdeal from August 9 onwards.
