Karbonn Mobiles launched Karbonn A16 and the Karbonn A99 handsets. There is only one difference between the A16 and the A99 handset and that is A99 comes with LED flash. The Karbonn A99 is priced at Rs. 6,190.

The dual core MT6572 with Mali 400 GPU is everywhere, every new handset that is being launched is powered by this 1.3GHz dual core chipset. It might sound weird but these manufactures are launching different models with different design but with the same stuff. If you compare the Karbonn A16 with the Karbonn A99, it’s an exact replica – hardware wise with one exception and that is the LED flash on the A99 model. And of course the handset design is a little different.

For the extra LED flash you pay an extra amount of approx Rs. 100 to 200 (black A99  model is even cheaper). As for the specifications, well the same 3.9 inch capacitive screen with 800×480 pixels resolution. Handset supports dual SIM running Android 4.2 with 512MB RAM and 4GB storage.
