Indian manufacturer Karbonn Mobiles has launched its new flagship smartphone, the Titanium X. It offers a 5-inch IPS screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080, 1 GB of RAM, and an unspecified 1.5 GHz quad-core processor that could potentially be a Qualcomm Krait CPU, but is more likely a MediaTek chip given the low price point.
The Titanium X also includes a 3G, Bluetooth, NFC and WiFi connectivity, a 5MP front camera and 13MP AF rear camera with a dual-LED flash, 16 GB of onboard storage with native USB-OTG support, and an expansion slot with support for microSD cards of up to 32 GB. Considering the large screen size and quad-core processor, the phone's 2300 mAh is a cause for concern and is, in fact, only rated for 6 hours of talk time and 240 hours standby.
The Karbonn Mobiles Titanium X will retail in India for Rs. 18,490 including tax ($299) with what appears to be a stock version of Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and is likely to be aimed directly at Samsung and Micromax, the two leaders of the Indian mobile market.
