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.
I think minor correction as per karbonn site its Snapdragon (Qualcomm) not mediatek but not sure which series
I paid 10800 for XOLO A800... and i feel its much better than MM A110... but have to check this phone... (more over the i guess the XOLO series phones are made by gigabyte atleast XOLO X900 is made by gigabyte the first intel phone)
It makes me feel bored with all Android High End phone at 3x the price.
I'm hoping Nexus 5 to come. Built by Motorola, Never out of stock, On-Demand above 20million sales per month, directly challege the Alwayst TOP sale Iphone!
According the website it features a snapdragon quad-core. maybe one of the s4-plays?

Then don't... moreNot only iphones but about more than half of the electronics component manufacturing is based in china.
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.
its Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.......you can see atthe official website of KARBONN company......
Anonymous, 29 Jan 2013Can you prove its a quallcom? I doubt it, even a dualcore quallcom would be hard to fit in a p... morecan't prove it but I've read it on a few Indian blogs, and being a phone from an Indian manufacturer, I assume this won't be a mistake.
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 pricetag.it obviously won't be a benchmark winner but would do just fine for it's category.
Meanwhile wikipedia say it's s4 play.
