American technology firm Swipe Telecom has released budget smartphone Sense in India.
The USP of the new phone is the fingerprint sensor, making it the cheapest smartphone to boast biometric technology in the Indian market.
Expensive MNC devices Apple iPhone 5S and Samsung S5, which cost more than ₹45,000, are the only other devices in the industry to house such an advanced security system.
Another striking feature of the Swipe phone is that it comes with two 2250 mAh Li-Ion Polymer batteries, so that users can be stress-free about the battery outrage, while playing resource-intensive games or multi-tasking.
Swipe Sense sports a 5.5-inch qHD screen and comes with Android v4.4.2 KitKat OS, 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB inbuilt memory (expandable up to 32GB), an 8.0-megapixel camera (with auto focus, LED flash) and a 3.2-megapixel snapper on the front for video chatting.
As of now, Sense has been made available at the company's official online store for just ₹9,999 [interested consumers, click here].
