Karbonn continues it’s onslaught on the budget Indian smartphone market with it’s latest handset, the Karbonn A30. The Karbonn A30 is a phablet, a big phablet. Packing a 5.9″ sized display, you now have an idea of what I mean by big. The phablet is bigger than Samsung’s Galaxy Note II which is just 5.5″ compared to the Karbonn A30. The A30 is the first device we are seeing launched in India that comes as close to 6″ (display size) as it gets. Read on for more details such as specifications and prices.
The Karbonn A30 currently holds the tag for the largest phablet smartphone running on Android in the Indian market. The phone design is pretty standard, with a normal bezel (expecting super thin bezel on a budget device is somewhat redundant). Four capacitive buttons adorn the area just below the display. This device is perfect for those confused between a tablet and a phone and want both. Either that or they have extraordinarily large hands. Jokes apart, have a look at what makes this device tick.
Karbonn A30 Full Specifications
- 1 GHz dual core processor
- 512 MB / 1 GB RAM
- 5.9″ qHD?? (960*540) display
- Dual SIM (3G + 2G)
- 8 MP rear camera, auto focus
- 1.3 MP front camera
- unknown internal storage
- expandable storage via micro SD upto 32 GB
- 2,500 mAh battery

We believe that the A30 will pack 512 MB of RAM, as the other devices in their lineup also pack the same specification. However, till it’s not completely confirmed there remains a possibility that it is 1 GB (which will be great news and great news only). The 5.9″ large display will surely be powered by a higher than standard WVGA (800*480) resolution display. We suspect it to be a qHD display (HD out of question looking at device’s price tag). Even at qHD, the display will have appalling ppi (pixels density). However, it will be far higher and better than cheap 7″ android tablets than have a paltry WVGA display on them.
