It's fun to see our currency written as INR. Anyways, the brand is an upcoming brand, but isn't quite up there. Micromax is leading by far. Quality is so much different between both these companies.

It makes me feel bored with all Android High End phone at 3x the price.

I think what people mean is that unlike apple,nokia which outsource the manufacturing,assembling to chinese based firms,brands like karbonn,micromax just ask for rebranding a particular handset and then sell it under their brand name.
That being said i'd like to see Indian makers bring the manufacturing back in India.

It is a qualcomm quad processor. With a7 cortex. Its screen has 960×540 resolution . Its performance is a bit > or equal to galaxy s2 and xperia s by quadrant standard scores around 3600~3800

It runs on the Qualcomm S4 Play chipset, with the Adreno 203 GPU. The four cores are the slow Cortex A5 ones.

anyways, whatever it may be, it definitely is not gonna be a a strong performer, which I'm guessing as it's video recording is reported to max out at 720p even for a quad-core phone.
also, the presence of a sub-par gpu in the form adreno 203 will not enhance gaming experience.
It gives the impression that if it is indeed a qualcomm chip, it is gonna be of an even worse class than the mediatek's on mmx canvas hd.

Only 1600mAh battery. And it is dual sim with 4.5 inch screen. Needs bigger battery.

Even if it's a 4x cortex a7 mediatek,it's alright.just luk at the obviously won't be a benchmark winner but would do just fine for it's category.
Meanwhile wikipedia say it's s4 play.­ip)
