We’ve been seeing an onslaught of KitKat phones in the entry-level category, but Swipe has chosen to ignore the trend and launch its Konnect 4 and Konnect 4E smartphones with the aged Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS. As their names indicate, the two handsets offer a 4-inch display and they both fall in the entry-level segment with price tags below Rs 5000.
The Swipe Konnect 4 and 4E are both pretty stylish-looking phones and they come in multiple colors. The former device is the better of the two where hardware is concerned. It offers an OGS display with WVGA resolution, and a VGA camera on the front, while the rear dons a 3.2MP snapper with LED flash.
Being dual SIM enabled, the handset comes with 3G connectivity and it also packs Bluetooth and Wi-Fi support. All components including a 1GHz dual core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, a microSD card slot and a 1500mAh battery are fitted within dimension of 126mm x 63mm x 8.4mm. The handset weighs 120 grams.
The Swipe Konnect 4E is no different from the aforementioned handset. In fact, they both share the same dimensions and have similar specs with a few modifications. This dual SIM phone doesn’t have 3G connectivity and the internal memory has been reduced as well.
Here are the specs of the Konnect 4E:
– Platform: Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean
– Display: 4-inch WVGA OGS touchscreen
– Processor: 1GHz dual core
– Memory: 256MB RAM, 512MB storage, 32GB expandable
– Camera: 2MP rear, 0.3MP front
The Swipe Konnect 4 is priced at Rs 4590, while the 4E carries a Rs 3750 retail tag, but can be purchased through Naaptol for Rs 3499.
