Flipkart is apparently appearing into the limelight after its impressive partnership with Motorola to exclusively launch its Moto X4 smartphone, which was first introduced at IFA 2017. Now the e-commerce platform has teased about introducing the Billion Capture+ smartphone on 9th of November. The phone is said to arrive today, 15th of November.
The news on 9th of November had been taken by many people as the official announcement date for the phone, but that was not what Flipkart had meant by it. They meant that they’ll make the smartphone available for purchase today. Flipkart has made the decision to launch the phone early as news of its announcement spread like wildfire. Now that’s how you create buzz for a product, right?
The smartphone is part of a sub brand of Flipkart known as “Billion” hence the name Billion Capture+.
Billion Capture+ Features and Price
The Billion Capture+ smartphone is essentially a mid range smartphone, which is really affordable. It’s true Indian to the core. From design to testing to manufacturing, everything for this phone has been done in India. Flipkart is itself an Indian company, so naturally this was bound to happen. Nonetheless, it’s a really great achievement for India as a whole.
The Billion Capture+ smartphone keeps with the trend and has a sleek designed dual camera setup on the back that allows for some breathtaking shots and for people to snap high quality photos with their phones. In addition to that, the Billion Capture+ also sports a back facing fingerprint scanner to take phone security to the next level.
The front face of the Billion Capture+ has all onscreen buttons including the back and home buttons. The physical power and volume keys, however, can all be found on the right side of the smartphone.
Coming onto the phone’s design, the body is full metal with a 5.5-inch “FullHD” display (1920 x 1080), sporting a 2.5D curved glass on top. It even has Dragontrail glass protection to prevent any physical damage.
The Billion Capture+ is powered by the Snapdragon 625 64-bit octa-core (SoC)chipset, with the accompanying GPU being the Adreno 506. Internal storage and RAM come in two options: 32GB or 64GB and 3GB / 4GB, respectively. The two cameras, included with a dual LED flash in the rear setup of the Billion Capture+, are both 13-megapixel in size, one supporting a monochrome lens and the other containing an RGB lens. There’s also an 8-megapixel camera in the front.
The Billion Capture+ has dual-SIM support, with one of the slots being hybrid meaning that it can be used to expand the phone’s storage capacity. It comes with a 3,500mAh battery with fast charging support. It comes with the Android Nougat 7.1.2 when shipped, and may even be upgraded to the Android Oreo in the future. Two mesmerizing colors come for the Billion Capture+ are Mystic Black and Desert Gold. The 3GB version comes in at Rs. 10,999/- while the 4GB is slightly higher at Rs. 12,999/-
