Karbonn Plans a Snapdragon-Based Octa-Core Smartphone for May Release

Indian mobile phone maker Karbonn has officially confirmed plans to bring to the market a new octa-core smartphone sometime in May, after making official two such devices only yesterday.

However, while the newly announced Titanium Octane and Octane Plus are powered by MediaTek CPUs, the upcoming handset will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor inside. According to a recent article on BGR India, the company also said that the smartphone would pack a Snapdragon 615 chipset inside, and that it would also feature a 5-inch screen capable of delivering a full HD resolution. Running under the Android 4.4.2 KitKat, the handset will also feature Karbonn’s new user interface on top. Additionally, Karbonn said that it will release the device at a higher price point compared to the newly unveiled phones, at around Rs. 20,000 ($326 / €237).

Karbonn also confirmed that it was indeed working on the launch of a dual-boot Android-Windows Phone handset, while unveiling that it would not be a cheap device when it lands on shelves in the next several months. The company has partnered with Microsoft for the release of Windows Phone devices only recently and should unveil such a smartphone soon, with a price tag of around Rs. 10,000 ($163 / €119), it seems. More on the matter will be announced soon, so stay tuned.
