Indigenous smartphone maker Spice has expanded its Stellar series with a new smartphone dubbed Stellar 509. The handset has been priced at ₹7,999.

The Stellar 509, an entry level Android smartphone will go on sales at e-commerce website Homeshop18 this week.

Spice's new smartphone sports 5-inch FWVGA (854x480p) display and is powered by 1.3GHz quad-core processor (unspecified chipset) coupled with 1GB RAM. The handset runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out-of-the-box OS and comes with 4GB of inbuilt storage, which is further expandable by upto 32 GB with microSD card.

The OS of the smartphone is a hiccup as it still shipped with old Android 4.2 and the company does not promise upgrade either. The handset houses 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and 2-megapixel front-facing camera.

The Spice Stellar 509 smartphone supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Micro-USB, A-GPS and 3G and comes loaded with 2000mAh battery. The phone comes with pre-installed apps such as Spice Cloud, Opera Mini, OLX, Getit, and Greetzap and will come in white colour option.
