While most companies are fighting out at the sub-10K price segment, Celkon is one company that quietly makes their moves in the sub-5K segment with many handsets and cornering a healthy pie of the market.
Their new offering Campus A518 comes with a 5-inch display but priced attractively at Rs 4,500. The press release we received talked about a 1GHz processor and silent on the details. We assume its a single-core and has less than a 1GB of RAM. We will get in touch with the company for more details on it. The dual-SIM Smartphone runs on Android Kitkat 4.4.2 and has a 4GB of internal storage with an option for external card that can accommodate up to 32GB. There is a 3.2-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and it even gets a 1.3MP front camera (not bad, eh!) A 2000mAh battery finds place.
The device is available in black and white variants. For Rs 4,500 you even get a flip case and screen guard out of the box, pretty neat ha! In a price-sensitive market, every drop of 500 Rs matters a lot and I feel Campus A518 might have a larger audience who would be interested.
