iberry Auxus Aura A1 with 8 core processor goes on sale for $162 ahead of Redmi Note in India


iberry’s latest, the Auxus Aura A1 went on sale in India earlier today for 9,990 INR or US$162.

This comes just weeks (or even lesser) before Xiaomi is expected to launch the Redmi Note in India. The Redmi Note will sell for 9,999 INR almost as much as the Auxus Aura A1. The couple phones that Xiaomi have launched in India (Redmi 1S and Mi 3) got price cuts worth 1000 INR or $16 right before launch, so we won’t be surprised if Xiaomi pull of a similar feat with the Redmi Note.

Coming back to the Auxus Aura A1, it comes with a 5 inch display and a 960 x 540 pixel resolution to make for a smaller than average phone. The 8 core processor powering the Auxus Aura A1 is the Mediatek MT6592m, which operates at 1.4GHz unlike the MT6592 which runs at 1.7GHz.

Specifications

  • 5-inch 960 x 540p display
  • 1.4GHz octa-core CPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB on-board storage
  • 13 mega-pixel rear camera
  • 8 mega-pixel front camera
  • 2800mAh battery
  • Android v4.4 KitKat
Auxus Aura A1 is craftily designed to appeal the eyes of those who want to get hold of a Smartphone that makes them feel premium. The 7.5 mm thick smartphone is artistically designed with a solid metallic alloy rim. The rear surface is pleasingly furnished with non-glossy matte finish to give an enchanting sophisticated look. – Feroz Ahmed, co-founder, iberry Auxus
A lot of octa-core phones have been releasing in the Indian market ever since Xiaomi announced it would be launching the Redmi Note in the country. iberry has failed to make any mark of sorts on the smartphone market yet, and the company would bet on the Auxus Aura A1 to help achieve the same.

Also, the 9,990 INR pricing is for a ‘limited period’ like most other iberry launches that have taken place in the recent past.

    Looks decent, kind of has that Gionee look everyone is trying to copy these days (probably same OEM). But the Redmi 1s has a HD display (720), a better UI and is cheaper.

      Yeah, only thing in its favor (on paper) is an octa core processor.

    Unfortunately iberry has picked up a reputation for bad support for their products in India. I too thing people would be better off with Redmi 1S.
