Indian OEM Celkon to launch its first Windows Phone later this month
Indian mobile maker Celkon will launch its first Windows Phone-powered handset this month. A company executive told The Mobile Indian that Celkon will launch the Win 400 by November 30. The phone will be priced at Rs 4,999 ($80).
The Celkon Win 400 has already made several rounds on the web. From what we know so far, the Windows Phone 8.1-powered Win 400 will be an entry tier smartphone with a 4-inch display. The device is said to be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 200 processor paired with 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of internal storage that can be further expanded up to 32 gigs via a microSD card. The device will have a 5-megapixel shooter at the back with a VGA selfie snapper upfront. It will be powered by an impressively large for its price 2,500mAh battery.
Speaking to the publication, Murali Retineni, executive director at Celkon Mobiles made the announcement, “Celkon will be launching a Windows 8.1 based smartphone by month end for Rs 4,999”. Celkon will be the latest hardware partner from India to launch a Windows Phone. Micromax, Xolo, and Karbonn launched their first Windows-powered phones earlier this year.Further reading: Celkon, India, Microsoft, Windows Phone, Windows Phone 8.1
