Celkon A225 is the first smartphone from Hyderabad based Celkon to run Android 4.1 JellyBean. In last few days we have gone through couple of sub-Rs 10000 smartphones in Indian market with JellyBean inside. As compared to previous Android versions of Android, JellyBean offers Project Butter that delivers silky smooth touch experience and pleasant multitasking. Google Now is also in an integrated feature of JellyBean. Therefore, it’s quite understandable buyers are looking to have the latest version (not exactly) of the OS in their handsets.
Byond released Byond B63 last month. Now we have Intex Aqua Wonder. Recently Celkon joins the party with Celkon A225. In South India especially in Andhra Pradesh Celkon is one of the top rated smartphones sellers. I can assume with this new handset they will continue the golden run. Price of Celkon A225 is set to Rs 9299.
In specs sheet there is nothing fancy other than Android 4.1 JellyBean. It equips dual core processor, possibly MediaTek MT6577, 512 MB RAM. Celkon A225 flaunts 4.7 inch FWVGA display IPS LCD display, 4 GB ROM, 8 MP snapper and more. In hardware some twist would have been ideal as buyers are now frustrated to see dual core processor, 512 MB RAM in all sub-$200 smartphones. At least 1 GB RAM would have been excellent combination. Anyway, it’s completely up to Celkon and you.
Oh yes, it’s a dual sim smartphone.Quad core smartphones like JiaYu G4, Umi X2 are entering in Indian market by the end of this month. Few more Chinese brands are also coming in Indian market. This will eventually increase the competition and reduce the price by a few thousands within next few months.
