Indian smartphone market is growing at an incredible pace. The country's Prime Minister kicked off the 'Make in India' initiative last year, which essentially means India is offering various OEMs benefits in order to manufacture devices in India, and it seems like this project is hugely successful thus far. A ton of smartphone manufacturers came to India to manufacture devices, and the market just keeps on growing. That being said, the competition is already fierce, we can only imagine what will happen in a year or so.
India is actually home to a number of smartphone manufacturing companies, like Micromax, Lava and the company we'll talk about in this article, Swipe Technologies. This company has actually released a new handset, a very affordable smartphone for the Indian smartphone market. The device in question is called Swipe Elite Note and it sports a 5.5-inch 720p (1280 x 720) 2.5D curved display with Dragontail glass protection on top of it. The phone is fueled by MediaTek's MT6735 64-bit quad-core SoC running at 1.3GHz, along with the Mali-T720 GPU for graphics. The 13-megapixel snapper can be found on the back of this device, and a 5-megapixel unit is available up front. The 3,000mAh battery is also a part of this package, and the phone also packs an IR Blaster. Android 5.0 Lollipop comes pre-installed here with the company's Freedom OS available on top of it. This phone packs in Dual SIM support, as well as 4G LTE connectivity. The phone ships with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage on the inside. The Swipe Elite Note measures 154.8 x 77.1 x 8.4mm, while it weighs 194 grams.
