Smart Namo Saffron 1 and Saffron 2 that made headline a few months back are in the news again. These handsets will be sold via Snapdeal; probably they will get listed tomorrow as per Smart Namo team comments on their Facebook page.

There is another handset a dual boot Android and Linux mobile called the Saffron X in the pipeline expected to hit the stores in Nov 2013. The Saffron X comes with 4GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. This reminds us of the Ubuntu Edge Smartphone with similar configuration. Not sure how much of Saffron X will be true.

The Saffron X sports 4.5 inch screen with HD resolution and supported Dual LTE, it comes with Sapphire Glass and stereo speakers. Battery is Silicon-Anode Li-ion. This handset could be priced at Rs. 35,000.
