Chinese smartphone maker Phicomm has launched a budget handset dubbed as Energy 653 in India.

Energy 653 is the second phone from Phicomm; the company had previously released a feature-rich mid-range device Passion 660 back in June.

The new Energy 653 sports 5.0-inch HD display and runs on the latest Android 5.1 Lollipop OS backed by 1.1GHZ Snapdragon 210 quad-core  SoC (System on Chip), Adreno 304 graphics engine, 1GB RAM, 8GB inbuilt storage and 2230 mAh battery.

It also houses an 8mp camera with LED flash on the rear-side and a 2mp snapper in the front.
