The smartphone also features a 5-megpixel rear and a 0.3-megapixel (VGA) front-facing camera.

The Swipe Marathon smartphone also includes regular connectivity options like 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and USB connectivity as per its listing on the e-commerce website.
It is worth mentioning that Swipe Marathon is the second smartphone in the sub-Rs.10,000 segment to feature such a large battery. The first was Lava Iris Fuel 60, which was launched earlier this month. The 4000mAh battery of Swipe Marathon is rated to deliver a standby time of up to 60 days. The smartphone is available in White colour variant from Snapdeal.
Swipe last launched its Swipe Sense smartphone in August. The Android KitKat-running smartphone is also the first to come with the fingerprint reader feature in the sub-Rs. 10,000 category. In addition to the fingerprint reader, Swipe Sense also comes with an additional 2250mAh battery in the box, apart from the 2250mAh battery backing the device. The smartphone however performed just average in our tests. While it had a good design and battery life, the main fingerprint feature was proven inconsistent. The smartphone comes priced at Rs. 9,999.
