Reliance has launched a quad core powered handset with 1GB RAM and 8GB storage. The handset sports a 4.7 inch screen with HD resolution. It supports dual SIM and is priced at Rs. 11,999.

Unfortunately the Reliance Reconnect RPSPE4701 is running Android Jelly Bean 4.2 out of the box and there is no mention whether the handset will get the kitkat update. The Reconnect RPSPE4701 is using probably the MediaTek’s 1.3GHz quad core processor with Mali 400 GPU.

There is 1GB RAM (DDR3), 8GB storage and 32GB micro SD card support. Screen is 4.7 inches supporting 1280 x 720 pixels resolution. Smartphone weight is 132 grams. A 13MP camera with LED flash comes packed on the rear and a 2MP on the front.

Key features are 3G, 2G, Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth. Both the SIM’s support 3G. The 2000 mAh Li-ion battery gives a talk time of up to 8 hours. The specs and the features are good however the handset is running Jelly Bean, which is a big disappointment, especially when almost all of the new handsets that are launched come loaded with KitKat.
