Swipe Technologies has launched a new smartphone, the Virtue, priced at Rs. 5,999. The smartphone is available in White colour exclusively via the Snapdeal e-commerce website.
The Android 5.1 Lollipop-based Swipe Virtue is a dual-SIM supporting smartphone that features a 5-inch IPS display with an HD (720x1280 pixels) resolution and a pixel density of 320ppi. The handset is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek processor (unspecified model) clubbed with 2GB of RAM. As per the listing, the smartphone includes 16GB of inbuilt storage, out of which 12.48GB is user accessible. The handset also supports storage expandability via microSD card (up to 32GB). It features an 8-megapixel autofocus rear camera with LED flash, and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
The Swipe Virtue is backed by a 2500mAh battery, which is rated to deliver up to 8 hours of talk time and 250 hours of standby time. Connectivity options included in the Virtue smartphone are 3G, GPRS/ EDGE, Wi-Fi with hotspot functionality, Bluetooth, FM radio, Micro-USB 2.0, and GPS/ A-GPS. It measures 142.0x70.8x8.3 mm, and weighs 172 grams.
The company in November last year launched its Swipe Junior smartphone for kids at the same price tag. Some of the highlights of the Swipe Junior smartphone include a customised UI for kids with features such as geo-tracking and geo-fencing to track a child's movement. The phone lets parents set safe and danger zones for kids. The Junior smartphone also allows parents to monitor a child's app usage pattern. The app management system also allows parents to allow or block apps on the device. Another notable feature is SOS button on the device that is basically one-step dialling to a pre-defined contact. The handset also features shock proof and break protective casing.
