While the Lenovo P2 and the upcoming Xiaomi Mi Note 4 remain the big launches for the month, a few budget smartphones have made a quiet entry.

 

To begin with, Samsung has launched the Galaxy J1 4G and J2 Ace in India. The J1 4G is priced at Rs 6870. It sports a 4.5-inch WVGA Super AMOLED display, and under the hood comes a 1.3GHz quad-core processor coupled with 1.5GB RAM. It runs rather older Android Lollipop. On the camera front, you will get 5MP rear and 2MP front-facing cameras. A 2050mAh battery completes the package.

 

On the other hand, the J2 Ace comes with slightly better specs sheet and a price tag that reads Rs 8490. The specs sheet includes a 5.5-inch qHD display, 1.4GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB RAM, 8GB storage space that can be expanded further.

 

The device runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and comes equipped with an 8MP rear and 5MP front-facing camera. It is fuelled by a 2600mAh battery. Samsung has ensured both devices support 4G LTE and VoLTE, Ultra Data Saving mode and dual SIM capabilities.

 

Accompanying them, are two other phones that support VoLTE from home-brewed company Micromax. Remember the Vdeo 1 and Vdeo 2 launched last month for a price under Rs 5000? Well, now listed online are the Vdeo 3 and Vdeo 4. The new additions also seem to be targeting entry-level users. However, Micromax has yet to make an official announcement. The Vdeo 3 is supposedly priced just below Rs 7000, and there is no word on the exact pricing of the Vdeo 4.

 

In terms of specs, the Vdeo 3 comes with 5-inch qHD display, 1GHz Cortex A 53 processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB onboard storage, 32GB expandable storage, 8MP rear camera and 2MP front-facing camera. It runs Android 5.1 Lollipop and is fuelled by a 3050mAh battery.

 

The Vdeo 4 sports a 5-inch HD display, and comes powered by a 1.1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 210, 1GB RAM, 8MP rear snapper, 2MP front camera, 8GB onboard storage and expandable storage slot supporting up to 32GB. It is a dual SIM phone that runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
