The iBall Cobalt Andi 4.7G has been introduced in India, the company has started catering to the mid-end segment with the launch of this device. The latest from the manufacturer has also kept up with recent trends by providing the Jelly Bean 4.2 Android OS.
To make the iBall Cobalt Andi 4.7G an even more attractive package, there are a few enhancements bundled with the OS for everyday convenience. First up is a feature that’s found in most Samsung Galaxy smartphones. Direct Call allows users to commence verbal communication with a contact by simply placing the device close to their ear from the message compose screen or whilst viewing stored details of a person.
Then there’s Smart Answer which is already present in numerous Android handsets. This attribute enables owners to put the phone into mute mode by flipping it over. Last but not the least is a tool found in the Galaxy Note series. Pop-up- play provides the ability of viewing a video while accessing another application. Unlike some budget-friendly smartphones, the iBall Cobalt Andi 4.7G comes with OTA support allowing manufacturers to push new firmware updates to the phone wirelessly.
