Celkon Too Takes Flipkart Bait, Launches Signature A500

celkon-signature-a500Indian handset maker Celkon Mobiles today joined hands with the ‘talk-of-the-town’ e-retailer Flipkart and launched a new smartphone exclusively with the e-commerce giant. The Hyderabad based phone company launched Signature  Two A500, one more additions to its popular Signature series, at Rs 5999.

The new device is a 5 inch FWVGA touch screen smartphone that runs on Android Kitkat. It has 1.3 GHz dual core processor, 8 GB onboard memory, 1 GB RAM and comes fitted with a 5 megapixel rear camera and 2000 mAh battery.

The Celkon Signature Two A500 will be available exclusively on Flipkart and not on traditional retail stores. Making phonnes available on Flipkart like e-retailers is a latest trend in India. Though Snapdeal is also in this fray, so far, Flipkart has been the most successful in attracting handset vendors to lie on its online stores. Started with Motorola, the Flipkart trend attracted Alcatel OneTouch, Blackberry, Xiaomi and now Celkon to have exclusive partnership with them.

The biggest advantage is the handset vendors get away with spending too much on physical retail distribution systems, and this benefit, according to them, is being passed on to the end users.

At Celkon, our endeavor is to bring out the best each time we launch an offering. We look forward to the success of this latest model in Signature series. We always strive to combine the best in quality with the latest features to create a wow experience for our customers. The Signature A500 will certainly be a unique and engaging device for all. We are pleased to have this partnership with Flipkart to enable reaching out to the entire country with this exciting new model,” Celkon’s Executive Director Murali Retineni said.

Celkon also launched another device during the occasion. Its called the Campus Evoke which, the company claims as world’s lightest phone at just 93 gms.  A43 is a dual Sim with a 4’ WVGA IPS Display and 1.3 GHz dual core processor. The phone has a 1 GB RAM with 4 GB ROM to enable smooth running of applications. The phone is 3G enabled and also has video calling, 5 MP rear camera with flash, 1.3 MP front Camera, G Censor, Proximity Censor, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth A2DP, 1400 mAh battery backup and an expandable memory upto 32 GB .
