Under the hood, the Karbonn phablet houses a 1.2GHz MediaTek quad-core processor with 1GB RAM and 16GB inbuilt memory which can be expanded up to 32GB via microSD card.

During the launch, Executive Director, Karbonn Mobiles, Shashin Devsare said, "The Karbonn Titanium S9 is the most exciting revolution to have come from Karbonn till date.

Karbonn Titanium S9 is expected to hit stores in a few days time. It will be the company's fourth device in the flagship Titanium series which includes - Titanium S1 (priced ₹9,990), Titanium S2 (₹10,299) and Titanium S5 (selling around for ₹11,990), all of which are powered by quad-core processors.
