Celkon Campus Mini A350: $62 piece of kit that runs KitKat out of the box


Celkon added another device to the list of entry-level KitKat phones with the Campus Mini A350 earlier today. The India based vendor announced the smartphone for an affordable price of 3,799 INR or $62.

As you would expect from a device as affordable as this one, there isn’t much under the hood to speak of. Going through the paces, anyway – it comes with a 3.5-inch 320 x 480 pixel display and a dual-core CPU that clocked at 1.3GHz (believed to be the MT6572, or a variant thereof) along with 256MB of RAM to barely take the device through the line that separates feature phones and smartphones.

Specifications

  • 3.5-inch 320 x 480p display
  • 1.3GHz dual-core CPU
  • 256MB RAM
  • 512MB on-board ROM, expandable
  • 3.2 mega-pixel rear camera with flash
  • VGA front facing camera
  • 1500mAh battery
  • Android v4.4 KitKat

Given the divide between internet-savvy and the non-internet savvy consumer share in a market such as India, the Celkon Campus Mini A350 perhaps does make more sense than you think. Having said that, this one’s definitely not for the cutting-edge tech freak!
