Karbonn A30 dual core 5.9 inch ICS handset launched for Rs. 10990

Now Karbonn mobiles have launched the Karbonn A30 another dual core handset running on ICS OS equipped with an 8MP rear camera. The A30 is listed on Saholic for Rs. 10,990 and shipping starts within 2 or 3 days.

For 10,990 consumers will also get a complimentary leather cover. Some of the specifications are not yet clear, but I believe it will compete with the Micromax A110. The amazing part is that the screen is 5.9 inches. The screen and the leather cover plus the price – clearly beats the A110.

The Karbonn A30 sails on a dual core 1GHz processor with I believe will have at least a qHD display to complement with the big screen size. The handset runs on ICS OS. Common features like 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, 3.5mm jack and micro USB port are included.

There is an 8MP rear AF camera with LED flash and a 1.3MP front camera. The battery is of 2500 mAh capacity. The internal storage, RAM and some more details are not known yet. Stay tuned for updates.

Karbonn A30 key features and Specifications

  • Dual SIM with dual standby running ICS OS.
  • Dual core (MT6577) clocked at 1GHz with PowerVR SGX 531 GPU. (Quadrant benchmark score is 2820.
  • 512 MB RAM, internal storage unknown. Micro SD card supported.
  • 5.9 inch capacitive touchscreen with 800×480 pixels.
  • 8MP rear, 1.3MP front camera. LED flash, video recording supported.
  • Sensors : Gsensor, light and proximity.
  • 2500 mAh battery.
  • Available in Black and White colours with Leather cover.
  • Price Rs. 10,990 (you heard read it right!). On Saholic.
  • Price now increased to 11,900.

Now when the specs are clear it seems the Micromax A110 is the best option. There is no difference between the Karbonn A30 and the MMX A110 expect for the screen size. Also 10,990 was a good price, but 11,900 makes me go back to A110.

    I am quite sure that the price will come down to 10.5k in a week or so. Many times it is observed that Karbonn & Spice products are a little overpriced to start with and later they reduce it depending upon the response and price of competitors similar products launched later.
    On the other hand, MMX has definitely set the benchmarks in pricing their products. It’s almost 2 months after the launch of A110 but still it’s price is same.

    Hi Gogi,
    Just got the hands on A30 in the local store. The stocks are available in plenty. My first looks are-
    1. Handset is too bulky around but I can tell you that it’s a handy one and more importantly it’s pocketable.
    2. Build quality is nice though. Nice to see that KARBONN is improving on this.
    3. Audio quality is really good. Plus point is that it has got Dual loudspeakers.
    4. Touch is very responsive.
    5. In spite of a low resolution, the 5.9″ Screen looks very attractive. Brightness level is also good.
    6. Camera quality seems to be a little better than Canvas 2.
    7. Importantly, KARBONN has mentioned on the box pack itself that it can play the full HD 1080p videos. But I think we have to confirm.
    8. The complimentary Leather case is nice & can give you the feeling of Note 2 in your hands. One additional back cover of opposite color is also there.
    9. Battery is very bulky and I think that is what has made the handset bulky.
    10. Memory allotted for Apps storage is around 550 MB.

    Overall, I think it’s a good deal @ 11,300/- (the local price) especially for the big screen lovers.

      Hi Deepak,
      I am surprized for noticing that the All types of handsets (new launched) are available in Kolhapur. I am staying in Pune and there are very few chances to see the lauched handsets and it takes around 15 to 30 days to appear. Kolhapur’s Market is very fast!
