The smartphone supports connectivity options like WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, 4G LTE with voice over LTE (VoLTE) support.
There is also a fingerprint sensor at the front designed similar to the Touch ID button on Apple iPhone. The smartphone runs Android 7.0 Nougat and includes 3.5mm audio jack and FM Radio support. The device is backed by a 2,700mAh battery and will be available in gold and grey color finish.
Celkon was one of the first smartphone brands to support government’s Make In India and Digital India initiative. The company started making its smartphones and tablets locally at company’s Tirupati plant in 2015. The company had also roped in Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli as its brand ambassador. The new Uniq from Celkon should be available via offline retail stores and seems expensive for what it offers in the price range.
