The smartphone will come in various colors – including blue, black, pink and white – and will feature a 4-inch WVGA display at 800 x 480 pixels, a dual-core chip at 1.2 GHz, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of on-board storage, a microSD card slot, rear 5 MP camera, front 0.3 MP camera and a 2000 mAh battery. The smartphone is expected to cost USD 300.
