The Indian mobile phone market has new units hitting shelves almost daily. With competition this tough, it is no surprise that technology in these handheld devices is getting pushed forward at an alarming rate. The latest in the series of line-blurring ‘phablet’ devices is S Mobility’s Spice Stellar Pinnacle Mi-530. The phablet is retailing for Rs 13,999 in the Indian market and boasts a variety of features, with the industry-leading 5-megapixel auto-focus front-facing camera being one of its highlights.
S Mobility has been slowly winning over customers who opt for cheaper smartphones, having a couple of standout features. Similarly, this new phone will grab people’s attention due to the fact that its 5.3-inch screen has a qHD IPS display, as well as other interesting features like dual-SIM capability, with both SIM cards being able to support 3G.
The Stellar Pinnacle will also have an 8-megapixel rear auto-focus camera and will run on the Android 4.0 platform. The phone’s processor could have been made more powerful, however the price would then have gone up as well. As a result, the Stellar Pinnacle houses a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor running off a 1 GB RAM. The 2,550 mAH Li-ion-Polymer battery will also ensure longer talk times than most.
The Dual Mic Noise Suppression technology that is being used in this phone, along with the Magnetic Sensor adds to the features of this device and will make a great buy for anyone on a tight budget.
