Celkon Win 400

Indian smartphone manufacturer Celkon has launched a new smartphone in the budget range, the Celkon Win 400, and this sets itself apart from the lineup from Celkon, as it runs the Windows Phone 8.1 OS. And this indeed is the first WP smartphone from Celkon.

Specs wise, the Celkon Win 400 is similar to the Lumia 530 from Nokia, but Celkon is pricing this smartphone at a price of Rs. 4999, which is quite an attractive one, as there are no much smartphones in the budget range, when it comes to Windows Phone lineup.

Having a 4-inch WVGA display (480×800 pixels resolution), the Win 400 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor and has 512MB RAM, and there is 4GB internal storage packed in, with a MicroSD card slot allowing the storage expansion to a maximum of 32GB.

The device runs Windows Phone 8.1, and there is no note about the latest Denim update on it. It has the One Drive, cloud storage from Microsoft with 15GB storage for free. Camera wise, this is at least better than the Lumia 520, because there is a 5-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera as well (Lumia 520 had only a rear camera).

The connectivity on the Dual-SIM Celkon Win 400 include 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0, and the phone comes with a 1500 mAh battery. There are two color options – Black and White, to be available and the phone is already on sale for Rs. 4981 through Snapdeal.

For the price, this is the cheapest price for a Windows Phone smartphone, and similarly priced is a Windows Phone device from Karbonn, named Karbonn Titanium Wind W4 which comes with almost the same specs, i.e. 4-inch WVGA display, Snapdragon 200, 5-megapixel rear camera and Windows Phone 8.1.

    The best affordable phone for the basic windows experience..definitely I would want to purchase one… also would love to see review from you of such cheap wp phones.

    this smartphone was in fame during the ipl.. now a windows production is going to boom as i am not shocked by the specs as windows 8 needs much low ram to run. but when it comes to my eye specs are like averaged but this specs cant be ignored at this price .. at this price they are even lots better … but this phone looks little fat

    I’m on a budget and like windows. I’m guessing the is the best option out there.

  • A great feat to accomplish with it being the cheapest windows phone available-even cheaper than the Karbonne TItanium Wind W4 with similar specs. Its also managed to be an upgrade from the Lumia 520 since it also includes a 1.3 megapixel facing camera and is still cheaper than the Lumia 520. For a budget phone, this had a Nice sleek design and decent specs at the lowest price you can get for the windows OS. I’ve never been a fan of Windows OS on a cellphone personally simply because you can sometimes pay less and get even more with an android device. Still nonetheless, Celkon had made a really nice phone at an incredible price which is sure to attract windows lovers from all around! And think this would be a 60-70 score phone under your review system right? Because if specs in relation to price? I hope I’m right!

  • Android

    So its a nice step from Celcon to actually provide a great low budget phone not that they don’t make them. This may be one of the best bujet phones to buy but for people who are rooting for Android this may not be the phone for them. This Windows is fairly good for the price But I would have liked it more of it was running Android. Its nice to see Celkon take a nice big bite out of windows and the devices end result is great. On terms of design this has a nice silicon touch to it so it’s not your standard plastic and the sleek design goes hand in hand with the device. The specs seem to be on par with the phone and is great for the price. I would have liked to see a better camera but for the price The phone is already very good.Great Windows phone avalable from Celkon right now. This is your ideal Windows budjet phone!!!

  • Suraj Racharla

    I know it may not be the best Android phone but it is the best Windows phone around
    in terms of budjet proof. Rooting for reading the review on this device….cant wait!!

  • If I were to review it i would probably give it around a 60-70 score simply because of its price its very lucrative and and great for the specs. Its the cheapest windows phone which s awesome!

  • Well you r right at this price it is and guess what its the winner against some of devices out there
