There appears to be some sudden activity among the Indian smartphone companies. While Micromax and Intex were in the news recently for launching their devices, it is the turn of Kult, another Indian mobile brand, to announce a new phone, the Kult Beyond. The phone has decent specifications for a budget phone that is being marketed at Rs 6, 999.
The display on this new phone is 5.2 inches and it has a 720x1280p HD IPS display. Though the precise name of the processor is still to be revealed, it is expected to be a quad-core chipset offering a clocking speed of 1.24GHz. The GPU fitted on this phone will be the Mali T720 MP 1 (650Hz).
The Kult Beyond comes with 3GB RAM and the dual SIM phone will have 32GB internal storage. An additional 32GB microSD card can also be added. The battery on the phone will be 3000mAh in size which should prove to be quite powerful considering the other specifications of the phone.
The company also claims that the battery can last out 25 hours of talk time on a full charge. The operating system woule be the Android Nougat, Version 7.0 out of the box.
The Kult Beyond is also adequately equipped in the optics department. There are two identical 13MP cameras in the rear and the front and both enjoy dual-tone LED flash support. There is the fingerprint scanner located in the rear panel just below the camera.
The functionality of the fingerprint scanner has been expanded beyond just unlocking the device. A few apps, making and receiving calls etc. can also be done through it.
The connectivity options are complete, including 4G VoLTE, which should make the phone readily acceptable in the Indian market with the growing popularity of 4G.
Having priced the Kult Beyond at Rs 6, 999, the company hopes the customers will prefer its device since the specifications do look solid for a smartphone in this segment. The device can be exclusively purchased on Amazon India.
