Swipe Technologies has added a new affordable smartphone to its Konnect series, dubbed the Swipe Konnect Star in India. The smartphone, with 4G support, is available exclusively via Shopclues.com, for merely Rs 3,799.
Taking a look at the specs-sheet, the Swipe Konnect Star features a 4-inch FWVGA display with 480x854 pixels of screen resolution. It is powered by a 1.0GHz quad-core processor, along with 1GB of RAM. It comes with 16GB of onboard storage which can be further expanded up to 32GB using a microSD card. On the camera front, the smartphone houses a 5-megapixel primary shooter with LED flash while the front facing snapper is rated at 1.3-megapixel.
The device is backed by a 1,800mAh battery which is claimed to render up to 10 hours of talk-time and 180 hours of standby time, and runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It is stacked with various connectivity options such as 3G, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS, Micro-USB, and a 3.5mm audio jack. This means that you can maximize the potential of a Reliance Jio SIM without having to spend a lot on an expensive VoLTE smartphone.
Commenting on the launch, Nitin Sharma, Sr. Director - Categories, said, "After the huge success of the Swipe Konnect Neo 4G smartphone and the Swipe Konnect Grand, and the traction that the brand has been generating on ShopClues for their extensive range of product offerings, we are sure that Swipe Konnect Star will be a massive hit on the platform. The ultra-modern Swipe smartphone with dual-sim 4G VoLTE captures all fascinations of the customer with its unbeatable specifications and highly affordable price point, thereby meeting ShopClues' overarching goals of offering enhanced products alongside seamless services to its discerning customers."
The Swipe Konnect Star is available in silver, gold and grey colour variants.
