Swipe has launched the cheapest smartphone in India with dual rear camera setup. The new Swipe Elite Dual is priced at Rs 3,999. The deal only gets sweeter with Reliance Jio offering an instant cashback of Rs 2,200 as part of its Jio Football offer, which brings the effective price of the smartphone down to Rs 1,799.
In terms of specifications, the Swipe Elite features a 5-inch display with HD resolution of 1280×720 pixels. The smartphone is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor coupled with 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage. It runs Android 7.0 Nougat, and is backed by a 3,000mAh battery.
However, the highlight of this device is the dual rear camera setup. The Swipe Elite Dual comes with a combination of 8-megapixel primary sensor supported by a 2-megapixel secondary sensor. The company is marketing it as “The only Dual Camera for the best portrait shots”. An additional sensor to capture the depth of the subject always helps, and a lot of other smartphone makers have also adopted a similar setup.
Swipe is trying to replicate that model in the budget price segment. The camera also comes with modes like ‘Blur’ to capture images with blurred background in addition to manual mode. It also gets a 5-megapixel selfie camera.
The smartphone supports 4G and with Jio, it is available with Rs 2,200 instant cashback offer. The offer entitles customers to get Rs 2,200 cashback in the form of Rs 50 voucher over a period of 44 months at the time of first successful recharge of Rs 198 or Rs 299 monthly plans. The voucher can be redeemed with every consequent recharge. A voucher worth Rs 50 will be credited in MyJio app, which can be redeemed one at a time per recharge.
With recharge of Rs 198 or Rs 299, Reliance Jio users will get unlimited local and STD calls, daily data limit of 2GB and 3GB respectively for a period of 28 days. The offer is also available on smartphones from other vendors and needs to activated on a new 4G smartphone. The Swipe Elite Dual hits the sweet spot as the cheapest smartphone with dual cameras that also supports 4G connectivity.
