It has an ever-so-slightly faster CPU – a dual-core 1.3GHz CPU. It also has a better camera (8 megapixel instead of the 5 megapixel on the A5S) but, apart from a bigger screen (5″ 854 x 480) it’s the same 4GB on-board storage, 512MB RAM and VGA front cam.
A 1600mAh battery is powering this and it’s dual SIM but again, there’s no 4G. It’s cheap though, so…
Personally I wouldn’t mind a quick dabble with their higher-end phones – the Karbonn S6 and Karbonn Sparkle V, but hey, these are entry level and priced that way.
More details below.
Karbonn Mobile A19
High tech smartphone that delivers without the price tag
LONDON, 12 January 2015: Karbonn Mobile has launched its third smartphone in the UK through Amazon.co.uk. The Karbonn Mobile A19 is Android at its best – offering a seamless smartphone experience for those who want to get the most out of their phone.
Running on Android 4.4 KitKat, the Karbonn Mobile A19 boasts a 1.3GHz dual core processor – making this device ideal for those who like to enjoy watching films, listening to music, playing games and browsing the internet. It is easy to customise with apps from Google Play, which can be smoothly accessed and switched between thanks to the phone’s highly responsive touch screen.
The Karbonn Mobile A19 has an attractive curved design with clean edges and a 5” capacitive multi touch screen that brings video and content to life on the move. The 8MP rear camera takes crisp and clear images and clever technology automatically adjusts the exposure ensuring every photograph is top quality. It also has a front camera, which can be used for video calling and of course taking ‘selfies’.
Deborshi Sarkar, Head of Sales at Karbonn Mobile, commented on the launch: “We have seen great success with our UK launches to date, so we’re excited to offer the Karbonn Mobile A19 to further expand our portfolio. This phone is made for people who want to push their phone to the limit – getting the most from every feature. It’s an affordable smartphone that doesn’t scrimp on spec.”
