Indian handset maker iBall is back on the market with yet another interesting device, the Andi 4.3j. After launching the Andi 5c budget-friendly Android phone and the dual-SIM Andi 2 smartphone, iBall now tempts customers with a dual-battery phone.
This is something we haven’t heard of before and probably a first for the Indian market. iBall’s Andi 4.3j comes with two batteries inside.
Yes, that’s right, the device packs two batteries, so when one is depleted users can charge it while the other keeps the smartphone running.
This is an interesting concept, at least to say, which is likely to attract lots of Android enthusiasts that are looking for devices with high-capacity power or long standby and talking times. iBall
Andi 4.3j packs a 1630 mAh Li-Ion battery and an additional 900 mAh battery, which is likely to deplete first. The total output of the batteries doesn’t really matter, as we suspect the phone will drain only one of the batteries first, so users can take it out and charge it.
If that’s not enough for you, you should know that Andi 4.3j offers dual-SIM
capability as well, so users won’t have to carry around unnecessary devices.
Although there are no details on this, we suspect the phone is powered by Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system out of the box, but it won’t come as a surprise if it’s powered by Gingerbread.
Furthermore, the smartphone sports a 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen display, a 1 GHz single-core processor, as well as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.
iBall Andi 4.3j will be available for purchase in the coming weeks for only Rs 9,499 (180 USD or 140 EUR), which is a small price to pay for what it has to offer.
“We are excited to launch for the first time in India a dual Battery smart phone. Battery backup is the major problem to the smart phone users. Realizing the high utility of smart phones, long hour chatting and longer browsing we have launched this stylish dual battery phone to provide unhindered and seamless usage
