iBall on Monday launched a new budget smartphone dubbed the Cobalt 5.5F Youva, which it says has been “designed exclusively for the youth.” Priced at Rs. 8,999, the smartphone is available from leading retail stores in India.
The iBall Cobalt 5.5F Youva is a dual-SIM (GSM+GSM) device which runs Android 5.1 Lollipop out-of-the-box. It comes with a 5.5-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) IPS display and offers a pixel density of 267ppi. The smartphone is powered by a 64-bit quad-core processor (unspecified) clocked at 1GHz, coupled with 2GB of RAM. The Cobalt 5.5F Youva comes with 16GB of inbuilt storage, which is further expandable via microSD card (up to 32GB).
It sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, while there is a secondary 8-megapixel front-facing camera also on board. On the connectivity front, the iBall Cobalt 5.5F Youva offers 4G, GPRS/ EDGE, Wi-Fi, GPS, Micro-USB (with OTG support), FM radio, and Bluetooth options. The 2.5D curved glass smartphone packs a 2600mAh battery.
The company says the Cobalt 5.5F Youva smartphone features ‘Video Eye Control’ functionality that automatically plays and pauses the video by tracking the user’s eye movements. The smartphone also houses Miravision Technology, Hot Knot, smart controls, wake gestures, and more. It supports nine regional system languages and 21 regional read-write languages. The smartphone comes bundled with two back covers apart from a separate, protective cover.
