Indian phone maker Karbonn Mobiles has announced a brand new, affordable 4G enabled handset in the country. The new handset called the Karbonn Aura Sleek 4G is now listed on Karbonn’s official website – albeit without pricing and availability details, The Mobile Indian reports. Even though we are not sure about the pricing, one thing we do know for sure is the fact that the Karbonn Aura Sleek 4G is going to be an affordable 4G capable device – thanks to it’s not too spectacular spec-sheet.
The Karbonn Aura Sleek 4G comes powered by a 1.1 GHz Quad Core CPU (most likely an entry-level MediaTek chip) with 1GB RAM & 8GB of internal storage space. You do get a microSD card slot for further memory expansion. Perhaps the most important addition is the support for Indian 4G VoLTE networks – which means the handset would be compatible with Reliance Jio.
As for the display, the Karbonn Aura Sleek 4G gets a 5-inch FWVGA display which translates to an effective resolution of 854*480 pixels. For imaging, the handset uses a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash at the rear as its primary camera. For selfies and video calls, the phone has a basic, fixed focus 2-megapixel camera on the front. Thanks to the 2,000 mAh battery, the handset claims a up-to 8 hours of talk time with 2G networks and 4 hours on 4G. The claimed standby time is 120 hours. The handset also supports dual SIM cards. Connectivity options include Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS and a micro-USB port. At 174 grams, the device is fairly heavy as well. At launch, the Karbon Aura Sleek 4G runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
