Karbonn has introduced a new smartphone, the Karbonn A8 through online retailer, Saholic for Rs. 6,189. The company has not officially announced the smartphone, though. The listing was first spotted by Fonearena.

The Karbonn A8 comes with a 4-inch display that sports a resolution of 480x800 pixels. It is powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor along with 512MB of RAM. It sports a 5-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera. The device includes 4GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 32GB via a microSD card. The Karbonn A8 is a dual-SIM (GSM+GSM) device with dual standby. The smartphone runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Connectivity options on the device include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS/ aGPS and 3G. Other features include FM Radio and a G sensor. Some preloaded apps include Assassins Creed, Bubble Bash, Kingsoft Office, WhatsApp, Flipboard and Karbonn Live.

Earlier, the domestic handset maker launched Karbonn A11+ that features a 4.7-inch FWVGA display with a resolution of 480x854 pixels. The device is powered by a 1GHz processor coupled with 512MB of RAM. It includes 161MB of internal storage which can be expanded up to 32GB with the help of a microSD card. The device sports a 3.2-megapixel auto focus rear camera with LED flash and a VGA front-facing camera. It is a dual-SIM device with support for GSM+GSM. Sadly, the handset runs the dated Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS, and there is no word about a possible OS update.

Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, EDGE, GPRS, Bluetooth and Micro-USB. The device is backed by a 1450mAh battery but there is no word on the expected talktime and standby time of the device. The device does not support 3G.
