Karbonn A24 is the next in line from Karbonn Mobiles probably hitting the Indian markets in August. There are many new killer features that will make the A24 the best buy, this includes the price too.

Still waiting for the Spice Mi-500 well there is more to come, the Karbonn A24 is way ahead and Spice did make a mistake by delaying the launch. Karbonn claims that the A24 smartphone display (960×540 pixels) will be something as better as what you see on the iPhone 4S, WOW!.

Add to it the default OS loaded is the latest Jelly Bean or Android 4.1. The A24 is also being termed as a Phablet (Tablet + Phone) but I don’t think the category fit here, especially when you look at the screen size with is just 4.5 inches, big enough but a 5 inch screen could have made a difference. I call it, the min Phablet.

There is more on the A24, to start with it will come loaded with all the necessary features like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth GPS etc. If you are still not impressed with it, then the 8 MP rear autofocus camera, plus a front camera for video calling, could change your mind. This phone will support 3G (no 4G yet), GPRS and EDGE. A dual core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz will meet your expectations.

You will agree that the Karbonn A24 specifications are too good, well now for the price it’s under Rs. 13,000. I was planning to buy the Spice Mi-500, but I have changed my mind, I will wait for the A24. Expect the Karbonn A24 review as soon as I get a hand on it, unless something better than this is launched, at a competitive price, of course.
