Coming to the Xenium S309, this new smartphone bears on it a 4-inch 480 x 800 pixel display, and runs on the combination of a 1GHz dual core processor and just 512MB worth of RAM. It has been blessed with 4GB worth of storage space which can be expanded further up to 32GB by means of its microSD card slot.
A 5MP snapper can be spotted on its rear surface, whereas a VGA front camera has also made its way onto the device. Philips is claiming this handset to offer up to 9.5 hours of talktime and up to 500 hours of standby time through its 1600mAh battery.
