Celkon’s new XION S CT695 is a 7-inch tablet that wants to be a smartphone

Seeing the launch of the new Celkon XION S CT695, we can’t help but give props to the Indian company for coming up with such a device after absolutely flooding the market entry-level offerings. This new phone holds a large 6.95-inch display on it, which almost makes it a tablet.

But Celkon is content with calling it a phablet, so we’ll go with that. After all; it’s priced at just Rs 7299 which is a great deal for a phone of this size. A look at its components however, might make you put off your plans of buying it.

Moreover, it goes for a dual core processor rather than a quad core one. The clock speed of this ticker is 1.2GHz, and it’s accompanied inside the device by a 1GB RAM module and a Mali 400 GPU.
