DataWind, the Canadian wireless, web-access products manufacturer has launched its new MoreGMax 3G6 in India with a price tag of Rs 5,999. The highlighting feature of the smartphone is that it comes with free internet access for a year. The availability details have not been disclosed yet, but the company is continuously promoting the handset as a Phablet for media consumption.
The company has partnered with Reliance to offer free internet to the MoreGMax 3G6 users for a time period of one year. Notably, the free internet access will be provided only via the default browser of the device. The user will not need any additional data plans or monthly fees to surf on the internet, but the thing to keep in mind is that the free internet usage will not allow audio/ video streaming or local-downloads. The company says user will have to buy separate data plans for this.
Coming next to specifications, the Android handset is blessed with a 6-inch display, which is undoubtedly the highlight of this device in this price range. Powering the device is a 1.3GHz quad-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of inbuilt memory space, which can be expanded further up to 32GB via microSD card. Unfortunately, it does not come with 4G VoLTE support but includes GPRS/ EDGE, 3G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Micro-USB as connectivity options on board.
In term of optics, the Dual-SIM handset packs 8-megapixel rear camera along with 2-megapixel front shooter for selfie lovers. The handset will directly compete against the Xiaomi’s Redmi 4A, which is also getting sold at the same price. The Redmi 4A is offering better specifications, but 1-year free data may also be a huge deal for some consumers.
Suneet Singh Tuli, President and CEO of DataWind, while announcing the new smartphone said, “Today, we've added a phablet to our lineup with a huge screen that meets the need of people wanting a rich internet experience on their handset. We at DataWind want to cater to the forgotten billion, those that have been left out of the growth and prosperity that India is witnessing. By empowering them with connectivity to billions of pages of a website, we give them the opportunity to take advantage of both educational content and also commerce.”
