Spice Mobiles has joined the list too by launching the 4G LTE enabled Stellar 519 in the country for Rs. 8,499. The smartphone also happens to be the first handset from its stable which has a 64-bit chipset.
The Stellar 519 comes shod with a 5-inch FWVGA display. A 720p display would have been welcome instead of this. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat (we would have liked it better had it been Android 5.0 Lollipop). There’s an 8-megapixel camera at the rear coupled with a LED flash and a 3.2-megapixel front camera.
