After achieving a decent success in the tablet market, Indian smartphone-maker iBall is trying hard to impress the camera-loving consumers. Following Android Cobalt 4 launch, iBall has unveiled another budget smartphone named Andi Avnote 5.

Priced at ₹5,999, Andi Avnote 5 features a 180 degree rotatable 8mp auto-focus camera. Due to its rotating ability, the same camera can be used both for primary and secondary purposes. The camera sensor has been accompanied by AutoFocusing ability along with a dual-tone flash.

The iBall device flaunts a 5-inch IPS FWVGA touch-screen display with 480x854 pixels resolution. Powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, Andi Avnote 5 is backed by standard 1GB RAM and 8GB built-in storage with expandable support up to 32GB.

The smartphone runs on Android Kitkat 4.4 and is powered by a 2,150mAh battery. It also supports 21 regional languages including Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Marathi and Nepali to name a few.

The dual SIM smartphone also offers 3G connectivity with a speed of 3G HSPA+ downlink of 21mbps and uplink of 5.7mbps. Connectivity options also include USB tethering, USB Internet, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Commenting on the occasion, iBall director Sandeep Parasrampuria said "iBall Avonte5 with its 180 degree rotating camera, rich looks and superb features will surely be the best smart phone under Rs 6,000 in the Indian market."

The device will compete with Moto E, Infocus M2 and a few Micromax-made models. Since Infocus M2 and Moto E both has limited availability due to their online-only selling strategy, iBall might get some advantage through the brick-and-mortar stores scattered across the country.
