Swipe Technologies has launched a new budget Android smartphone that comes bundled with a VR headset, allowing users to “enjoy” VR content right out of the box. Priced at Rs.4,499, the Swipe Elite VR is available in Black, Red, Gold, and White color options. It is now available exclusively from ShopClues. Launch offers include instant 10% cashback for Kotak Credit Cards, and Standard Chartered Debit as well as Credit Cards. Consumers will also receive travel offers worth Rs.3,000 from MakeMyTrip.
The Swipe Elite VR comes with a 5.5-inch IPS display offering 720 x 1280 HD resolution, which, although not high enough for a great VR experience, is still better than many other smartphones available below the Rs.5k mark. It runs on a quad-core MediaTek MT6737 64-bit processor clocked at 1.3 GHz, with a Mali-T720 GPU handling the graphics processing. As far as the memory department is concerned, the smartphone includes 2GB of RAM and 8GB of onboard storage. You do get a dedicated microSD card slot as well, which allows further expansion by up to 32GB. Swipe has equipped the Elite VR with a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP selfie camera, making it one of the most impressive smartphones under Rs.5,000 for users who care about camera performance. However, resolution isn’t everything, so we will need to get our hands on one and test its capabilities before passing any final judgment.
Connectivity features offered by the Dual SIM smartphone include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS with A-GPS, and 4G VoLTE. The smartphone includes a removable 3000mAh capacity battery, bigger than most other handsets you can find in this price range. It runs on the now outdated Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system, with a few custom touches from the manufacturer added on top. The SwiftKey keyboard app comes pre-installed from the factory.
