Swipe Technologies has launched their latest smartphone in the entry-level or budget segment, the Konnect Plus which sports a 5-inch HD display with 1280 x 720 pixles resolution, it is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor coupled with 2GB o RAM and 16GB internal storage space with expandable memory option up to 32GB using microSD card.
From the images, the device appears to come with a Sandstone black back panel inspired from the OnePlus devices which looks quite neat for a budget level smartphone. It comes with a 13MP rear camera with LED flash and a 5MP front facing camer. If it is the same camera set up from the Elite Plus it is going to be a major advantage as there are no smartphones which can compete with the camera set up of the Elite Plus in this price range.
