BSNL, in partnership with Champion have launched a new phablet called BSNL Champion DM6513 at a starting price of Rs 6,999.
State-run telecom operator BSNL in partnership with Champion has launched a new Android powered phablet in India called the BSNL Champion DM6513 with a starting price of Rs 6,999. The phablet will be available on sale across all online e-retailers such as Flipkart, Snapdeal, ebay, Naaptol, Tradus, Homeshop18, Indiatimes, Rediff, Amazon, Shopclues, Infibeam, etc.
The BSNL Champion DM6513 comes with dual-SIM compatibility and features a massive 6.5-inch display, a G-Sensor and sports FM with recording facility. It is powered by a dual-core processor (from an unspecified chipset maker) with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage, which can be expanded up to 32GB via microSD card. Camera-specs include a 5 megapixel rear camera and a 2 megapixel front-facing camera. Connectivity features include 3G, Wi-Fi and GPS. Battery pack consists of a 3,500mAh unit with up to 4 hours of talk time and up to 62 hours of stand by time. The device runs on Android 4.2.2. Jelly Bean out of the box.
Launching the new phablet, Mr Kapil Wadhwa, managing director of Champion Computers said, “Our BSNL DM6513 is a 6.5-inch phablet, which is suitable for both work and play. After introducing feature phones and smartphones, we were certain to penetrate in the Phablet market. We have devised our product with all the necessary features at a very competitive pricing. We are affirmative that this product will set great standards and substantiate that we are offering the best of quality at very affordable prices.”
And at an economical price of Rs 6,999 we reckon the BSNL Champion DM6513 could indeed get its deserving share in the Indian market, provided that both companies get their marketing and advertising right. In the given price range however, the BSNL phablet will directly rival the Zync Z605 phablet, which also comes with a 6.5-inch display, features a dual-core processor and is slightly priced higher than the DM6513 at Rs 7,999.
