Indian consumer electronics major, Videocon, on Wednesday released a feature-rich budget android smartphone called A24, into the market.

Videocon A24 sports a 4.0-inch WVGA capacitive touch screen and packs a 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 256 RAM and 512 ROM. Its memory can be expanded up to 32GB through microSD card.

Khalid Zamir, Head Product Planning & Development, Videocon Mobile Phones Division, at the launch event said, "The Videocon A24 brings in an easy to use yet efficient smartphone experience to consumers who might be looking for their first smartphone. A simple and intuitive layout engages the consumers with the device and brings to them various vistas which help them to make the most of their Android smartphone experience."

The new Video smartphone is one of the few budget smartphones in the market to run on Android v4.2 Jelly Bean OS. Many of the low-cost smartphones run on pretty old OS versions - either v2.3 Gingerbread or v4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS.

Recently, local player Intex too released the Android v4.2 OS based Cloud X3 in the market.

With a price-tag of ₹4,699, Videocon A24 houses a pretty decent 3.2-megapixel camera on the rear side and VGA camera.
