Byond tech has now launched the Byond Phablet PII with a 5.7 inch screen, powered by dual core processor running Jelly Bean OS for Rs. 14,999. Incidentally the Byond Phablet PIII with a 6 inch screen is listed on Flipkart for Rs. 12,699.

There are a few differences between the Phablet PIII and the Phablet PII. The Phablet PII comes with a 1 GHz dual core processor probably with Mediatek MTK6577 with PowerVR SGX 531 GPU. This smartphones comes with 1GB RAM, 4GB internal storage and micro SD support.

The IPS display screen is 5. 7 inch with 1280×720 pixel resolution. The Byond Phablet PII runs on Android version 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean). There are dual cameras included of 8MP on the rear and 3MP front camera.

Other features are the same as found on other 5, 5+ inch handsets like 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth etc. A 2500 mAh battery gives a standby time of about 100 hours. This phone will be available on Flipkart and stores in India.

Everyone is looking for the quad core handsets and I doubt if anyone would want to buy this Phablet for a price which is more than the quad core.
