Karbonn A9+ with 1.2 GHz Dual Core Scorpion Processor

The Karbonn A9+ an upgraded version of the Karbonn A9 is now showing up on Flipkart without  a price tag and with a coming soon status. So will it be the next dual core handset after Spice Mi-500, or something else might come up before the status changes.

But the good news is that the dual core options are growing. The Karbonn A9 as we all know is a very good handset with a price tag around 9K. The A9+ is probably the same with a dual core processor. Let’s have a look at the specifications to find out. And thankfully the specs are available.

The Karbonn A9+ is a dual SIM handset supporting GSM + GSM SIM with a 4 inch capacitive touchscreen of resolution 800×480 pixels. Furthermore the screen is IPS display with multi touch support.

The A9+ (Karbonn A9 plus) sails on Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). The memory part (RAM / internal storage) however is not mentioned. Probably will be with 4GB internal and a minimum 512MB RAM.

The Processor is Qualcomm Scorpion (dual Core) clocked at 1.2 GHz. There is a primary camera of 5 Megapixels resolution with LED flash. Rear camera is Auto focus with bust mode and can also detect face + many more features. There is a front camera of 1.3MP resolution for video chat, not sure if native video calls are supported.

Other features included are 3G, GPRS, EDGE, Wi-Fi, GPS with A-GPS, Bluetooth, USB, (tethering – Hotspot / USB) and 3.5mm jack. The battery is of 1420 mAh capacity.

We will have to wait for few more days to get the exact price tag and the availability. So what do you think the price tag will be? I guess between Rs. 10,000 to 11,500 – perfect price to compete with the Spice Mi-500.
