As the E-Com buzz rings louder than ever before in India, more and more major smartphone vendors are typing up with Online Portals for an exclusive launch online. After Motorola successfully did this with the Moto G, making Moto G their best selling smartphone, Karbonn looks set to follow the same footsteps and would be hopeful of similar success. The newest device from the labs of Karbonn, called the Karbonn Titanium Hexa will be exclusively launched online on Amazon India. Amazon and Flipkart have been two of the most successful E-Com portals in India and it is no surprise that the two are preferred partners for majority of these exclusive launches.
The Karbonn Titanium Hexa has been available for pre order starting May 13th and Karbonn will be bundling the phone with a free Plantronics Bluetooth Headset to every user that buys the device from Amazon. The device will officially go on sale from May 20th for the price of Rs 16,990. The device would be one of the few phones apart from the flagships or Nexus lines to come with Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. Not just that, the specs on paper of the phone are certainly cutting edge.
ShashinDevsare, the Executive Director of Karbonn Mobiles said this about the move of going with an Online partner like Amazon for the launch of their new smartphone:
“With increasing internet penetration through smartphones and evolving lifestyles, customers today enjoy and expect to see several experiences straight out of the box. By making the Amazon App natively available on our Karbonn ‘Smart’ range we wish to transform the way consumers shop and bring the convenience of anytime, anywhere shopping right to their fingertips. With this handy shopping app we endeavour to increase awareness on online shopping and present it as a smart, convenient, secure and hassle-free avenue of shopping to millions of consumers across the country. We strongly believe that this collaboration will reinforce the value of secure mobile e-commerce and also drive increased usage of mobile Internet, thus benefiting the entire end to end ecosystem.”
Amit Agrawal, the VP and Country Manager of Karbonn Mobile said he was thrilled about the move. He went on to state:
“We are very excited to partner with Karbonn to offer the Amazon mobile shopping app to its customers and making the latest smartphone Titanium Hexa available exclusively on www.amazon.in. Both of these add to our vision of offering customers in India a unique and wide selection of products on our platform and delighting them with a seamless, convenient, and a globally trusted mobile shopping experience.”
The Karbonn Titanium Hexa as the name suggests is one of the few Hexa Core smartphone in the market. The device is powered by a Mediatek MT6591 chip and 2 GB of RAM with a 5.5 inch display that boasts of a 1080 P display. The phone has a dimension of 154 x 76.8 x 6.9 mm and has a 13 MP rear camera with an LED Flash and a 5 MP front facing camera. The Titanium Hexa has a 16 GB internal memory with expansion possible thanks to a Micro SD card. The battery on board is a 2050 mAh. The device will come in white variants at the launch but we hope the black version will be added too.
