Much like Micromax, Karbonn is one of the largest Indian smartphone OEMs. This company is very popular in India, they mostly release low and mid-range handsets. The last device the unveiled was the Titanium Mach One, which was introduced back in January. Karbonn is now back with yet another mid-ranger, the Platinum P9. Anyhow, let’s check out what this huge device has to offer, shall we.
The Karbonn Platinum P9 is a mid-range phablet by the company, it is at the same time the first device in the company’s new “Platinum” series. Anyhow, the Platinum P9 features a 6-inch qHD (960 x 540) IPS laminated display with Corning Gorilla Glass protection on top of it. This device is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor (most probably a MediaTek chip), 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD card up to 32GB). This device features an 8-megapixel camera on both its front and back, the rear-facing sensor is flanked by an LED flash. This is a dual SIM device and it ships with a 2,500mAh battery on the inside. As far as connectivity goes, this handset supports 3G, Wi-FI 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth (with A2DP) and GPS. As you can see, the Karbonn Platinum P9 doesn’t offer 4G LTE connectivity, though that was to be expected here, this is a budget mid-ranger.
This device is already available for purchase in India for Rs, 8,899 ($143), and it comes in Black color only. This is a solid mid-range phablet from Karbonn, and if you’re in a market for such a huge device and live in India, this might be something you’d want to consider.
