Spice Mobiles has launched the Smart Flo Mettle 5X (Mi-504) handset for a price tag of Rs. 6,499. This handset comes powered by dual core processor clocked at 1.3GHz, yes with the same chipset MT6572 that almost all dual core handsets are launched with.
The Spice Smart Flo Mettle 5X specifications are the same, it’s with 1.3GHz MT6572 dual core processor with mail 400 GPU. Android 4.2 is the OS playing around on a 5 inch screen with 854×480 pixels resolution.
RAM is of a modest 512MB and internal storage is 4GB. Micro SD card of up to 32GB is supported. An 8MP auto focus camera is placed on the rear with flash support and another 1.3MP on the front. Features included are Wi-Fi, Bluetooth. There is no 3G support, you can use the 2G networks (EDGE). There is built in GPS receiver with A-GPS support.
The battery is 1800 mAh that is sufficient for this 1.3GHz dual core chipset. The Spice Smart Flo Mettle 5X box pack also includes a free flip cover (needs confirmation). Spice mobiles is also planning to launch the Mettle 4X (4 inch screen) and 3.5X (3.5 inch screen) with the same hardware and for a cheaper price.
The dual SIM Spice Smart Flo Mettle 5X is priced at Rs. 6,499 and doesn’t really look good because of the missing 3G support.
