Swipe Fablet F1 a 5 inch single core smartphone for Rs. 8990

After launching the dual SIM tablet, Swipe Telecom have now launched the ICS powered Swipe Fablet F1 a single core (MTK6575 CPU) smartphone with a 5 inch screen and 5MP camera for Rs. 8,990. The handset supports dual SIM and comes with a free flip cover – for a limited period only.

The hardware is the same as found on the Micromax A90 the single core version. Probably the GPU will also be the same i.e. PowerVR SGX 531. For the price of under Rs. 9K this seems like a good deal along with the flip cover and bigger battery capacity.

Do note that the company is giving the flip cover for free for a limited period only. The Swipe Fablet F1 sports a 5 inch multi touch screen with 800×480 pixels resolution. There are 3 dedicated buttons on the front side. RAM is not mentioned but I guess it will be 512MB. There is 4GB internal storage with micro SD slot to add extra storage of up to 32GB.

This handset comes with a front 0.3 MP camera that can be used for video calls and a rear 5MP camera with LED flash. Not sure of it can record videos in 720p resolution, but the hardware that it has, it should.

The Fablet F1 supports dual SIM with dual standby, quad band, 3G support, WiFi, Bluetooth, micro USB, GPS and 3.5mm audio jack. The handset weighs 120 grams and is 11.4 mm thin. You get two batteries each of 2500 mAh capacity.

Not much difference between this single core and the other single core handsets or the matter of fact dual core like the Lava XOLO A700 or the Micromax A110. But for the price and the feature like 2x batteries and flip cover it could attract some users.

    any idea how to use the 2 batteries that comes with this? because if you keep using only one battery, the other will degrade. so the only option to keep both batteries in working condition, is to take out one battery when the charge drops, use the other, take out the other when the charge of the other drops, put back the first one and charge and then keep using the first one till the charge drops, and continue like this?

    Anyone can advise on this ??

    When i looked at the features the fablet had to offer I was quite impressed but what blew me away was the price tag. There is no way that a dual core device could be available at this price but fortunately for us it’s true. Thank you Swipe team

      Haven’t used SWIPE, by with A110 I didn’t like was bulky camera coming out. WiFi was week. Difficulty in getting cover or scratch gurad. Auido was just audioable, hardly audioble in bit noisy place

    Heck all current 5″chers, I would RECOMMEND everyone to WAIT few days, and the market will soon float on 1GB RAM + DUAL-CORES PHABs in less then 10k

    If mmx launched canvas 2 in just 2 months or less, with a 512RAM & 1GHz DualCore (and some more changes) as against canvas 1 with single core 1GHz CPU, it will or other company say karbonn will surely launch a Fablet with 1GB RAM + DualCore CPU in next weeks; Who knows on Christmas?

    It has 1 gb of ram and it has a dual core processor, I called up their call center and the gave me these figure. Plz u also confirm this if it has all these features I would buy it.

    A dual SIM feature is just one of the amazing features this device comes with. Also this is one of the best Swipe Products in terms of the inbuilt camera, a cool 5 M.P.

    Hey Gogi,
    How much will this flip cover cost as it is not original??
    Samsung EFC-1J9FSEGINU Cover for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 cost Rs 1400/
    I guess the extra 2500mah battery will cost Rs 1000/- right? Otherwise it looks like a good deal for heavy internet users to carry a spare battery on the go better than wammy note.
