New Delhi: The week gone by witnessed plenty of smartphone launches in mostly the budget segment. The most notable was undoubtedly the Nokia Lumia 525, an affordable device that succeeds the popular Lumia 520 – which is its top selling Windows Phone device worldwide. Nokia is offering the Lumia 525 with two significant upgrades: first it is powered by a 1 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and second it now has 1GB of RAM. The device was quietly announced out of Singapore, where it will go on sale from December 14 priced at $199. The company is yet to announce its global launch date and availability.
The country's top smartphone maker Samsung also launched its Galaxy Grand 2, the successor to the highly-successful Galaxy Grand phablet. Unlike the Galaxy Grand which had a dual-core processor, this second version of this device has a quad-core processor. Key features include an 8 megapixel camera and a bigger 5.25 inch 1280×720 TFT screen.
Another significant launch was Micromax A77 Canvas Juice. Micromax has officially listed the A77 Canvas Juice phablet in India, on its official website. However, the company has yet not revealed the details about the price and availability of the A77 Canvas Juice. Still, the Micromax A77 Canvas Juice was listed at an e-commerce website for Rs. 7,999, but remains 'out of stock'.
