Another budget smartphone went on sale in India earlier today, in the form of the Spice Stellar Mi-445.
It comes with a specs set that shouts entry-level; a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU and 512MB RAM make up for the processing core while other internals include 4GB of on-board storage, a 3.2 mega-pixel rear camera, a 1.3 mega-pixel front camera and a teeny 1500mAh battery. While Google’s Android, version 4.3 Jelly Bean, takes care of the software segment, a screen measuring 4-inches diagonally sits on top with a 800 x 480p WVGA resolution.
This is the first 10.16 cm smartphone from Spice with a Quad Core processor that enables multitasking and faster speed. Through the multiple Indian languages option in our products we intend to reach out to the masses with the readiness of their choice of language in their mobiles. The idea to empower every Indian through their smartphones has been our engine of growth and we have been working towards it by proliferating data services through our 3G enabled handsets.
