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.
