Spice which is best known for its affordable smartphones has launched its very first 4G enabled handset that goes by the name Stellar 519. The device is an upper entry-level option priced at Rs 8499 and it also offers 64-bit processing capabilities, aside front LTE support.
The downside is that the phone has Android 4.4 KitKat running the show and no mention of an update to Lollipop has been made. The processor of choice here is the 1.2GHz quad core Snapdragon 410 that’s also found on the new Moto E 4G handset which is the main competition for the Spice Stellar 519.
Where the Spice phone in question has the upper hand is its display which is larger at 5 inches, but has FWVGA resolution. Also, the main camera is an 8MP sensor with an LED flash, while the front shooter is rated at 3.2MP.
Along with Android KitKat, Spice is also throwing in the Snapdragon Audio+ and Voice+ technologies as well as support for multiple native languages. There are dual SIM card slots here and while 4G is limited to a single housing, you’ll also be able to connect to an HSPA+ 3G network.
