The budget phone Karbonn A16 is now available online for Rs. 5,990. This dual SIM handset runs on Android 4.2 OS and guess what it is powered by the same 1.3GHz dual core processor that we have already seen on many handsets.

The A16 bar type handset sports a 3.9 inch screen with 800×480 pixels resolution. It uses the MTK6572 chipset with Mali 400 GPU running Jelly Bean 4.2 with 512MB RAM and 4GB storage. Now this is a budget phone and some features might be missing. Micromax A63 canvas fun comes with same hardware but GPS is missing on that handset.

There are dual cameras of probably fixed focus resolution. A front VGA and a rear 5MP without LED flash. It is capable of recording HD videos in very low FPS – the quality is not that good. Other features are 3G, Wi-Fi (b/g/n), Bluetooth, not sure about GPS, 3.5mm audio jack and micro USB port.
