Key features of the Karbonn Titanium Jumbo include its massive 4,000mAh battery, and Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box. It adds to the list of newer phones which run the latest Android version. The phone is available in color choices of black and champagne. Although the battery capacity is impressive, the Titanium Jumbo is not as impressive when it comes to the aesthetics. With a rather regular-looking chunky design, the phone features virtual controllers on the front panel. There’s no fingerprint sensor on the phone either. Now, this might be disadvantageous for a company battling in a highly competitive market where fingerprint sensors have become a mandate.
