Spice launches 5-inch Android Smartphone for Rs. 6,999
S Mobility Limited, today launched the Smart Flo Pace 2 Mi-502, a 5-inch smartphone, for Rs. 6999/- The phone runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and powered by a 1 GHz dual-core processor.
The phone is 9.6 mm slim and sports a 5 MP camera with dual LED Flash. It also carries a 1.3 MP front-facing camera which is good for the price of the phone. This dual-sim budget smartphone has a 5-inch WVGA display with a resolution of 400 x 800 pixels. The phone stands tall with a 2100 mAh battery, running on a 512 MB RAM, which will provide a talktime (2G) of upto 5 hours.
The other features of the phone include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, EDGE/GPRS and pre-loaded WhatsApp. This device also offers a leather case and a screen guard inside the box. Spice Mi-502 though fails to deliver 3G which makes the phone quite incompetent.
Commenting on the launch, Mr. T M Ramakrishnan, CEO – Devices, S Mobility Ltd said, “With the launch of Smart Flo Pace 2, we seek to offer better & advanced features at a competitive pricing. This product positions itself as a premium budget phone with enhanced features and better than what competition is offering. We are encouraged by the response to our previous 2G as well as 3G smartphones and this launch reflects our belief in constant innovation and customer delight.”
The build quality of Spice phones is quite reliable compared to other budget smartphones in the market. The specifications of this phone are quite similar to the Micromax A72 Canvas Viva and Micromax Canvas 2. If the on-paper specifications stay true to the performance of the phone, then it’s definitely a steal for Rs. 6,999.
