Celkon mobiles have launched the Celkon A119 also called Signature HD, a Jelly Bean powered handset with 5 inch HD screen and 1GB RAM. This handset is priced at Rs. 13,499. Now before you get excited let me tell you that this handset is powered by a dual core processor, were you expecting a quad core… well yes..

The Xolo A1000 is another handset with nearly the same specifications. It is also with HD resolution powered by Mediatek 6577 hardware with 1GB RAM. Do check the Xolo A1000 review. Probably the A119 is also with the same stuff. Dual core is good but I believe the HD resolution does have some impact on the overall performance. HD screen on a quad core like the Micromax A116 works really well. The Celkon A119 front side does look similar to the Micromax A116, however it is not curvier.

The Celkon A119 Signature HD is a dual SIM handset with 1GHz dual core processor, 1GB RAM and 4GB internal storage of which 1.45GB is available. The handset sails on Jelly Bean OS. It is 9.3mm thick and weighs around 177 grams.

There is a 12MP rear auto focus camera and a 3MP front camera. Led flash and Video recording at 720p is supported. Like the Xolo A1000 this handset could also come with 1080p recording option but that is with a very low frame rate.

Other features are 3G, 2G, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, 3.5mm jack and micro USB port. A 2100 mAh Li-ion battery gives a talktime of over 5 hours. Incidentally this handset is priced a little lower than Xolo A1000 i.e. 13,499.
