Karbonn has just launched a new phone in India, the giant A30 model, going for $211 and running Android 4.0 ICS. This is a dual SIM handset with an 8 megapixel cam at the back and a 1.3 megapixel cam upfront. The device looks bulky and pretty solid and somehow it reminds me of a Huawei tablet, for some reason.


This model packs a microSD card slot, a 2500 mAh battery and a 1 GHz dual core processor. It’s available in black and white and Karbonn chose not to disclose the quantity of RAM, internal memory and the maker of the CPU inside. Other specs include WiFi, WiFi hotspot feature, WiFi Direct, gesture control, face detection and 3G support. I also wish we’d know the resolution of the huge screen, that’s even bigger than the one of the Galaxy Note II…

I did some research online and found Karbonn Mobiles to be an Indian company that already has a bunch of tablets and dual SIM smartphones in its offer. Most of them run Android 4.0 and have decent specs, including big batteries. The interface seems personalized a bit and prices are all low.
