Billion Capture+ sports premium features, usually reserved for expensive flagship smartphones
Flipkart, India’s largest e-commerce platform, today launched its first ‘Made For India’ smartphone – Billion Capture+ -, produced exclusively to address the unique needs of Indian customers. The Billion Capture+ is designed, engineered, manufactured and tested in India. It is part of Flipkart’s private label Billion, and will go on sale exclusively on Flipkart from Nov. 15.
The rich specifications of the Billion Capture+, arrived at after analysing millions of customer reviews on Flipkart, fill some critical gaps between customer aspirations and what is currently on offer in the market. The Billion Capture+ packs top-end features usually reserved for flagship smartphones, such as 13MP + 13MP dual rear camera, a long-lasting battery with Quick Charge™, powerful Snapdragon™ 625 octa-core processor for breezy multitasking, free unlimited cloud storage, and the latest Android Nougat. The phone has a premium metal body with easy-to-hold curves and a fingerprint sensor on the back for ease of use.
“The Billion brand’s products have always been backed by meticulous data-driven research and insight into Indian customers’ needs. The features in the Capture+ too have been derived from deep data-mining of millions of Flipkart customers’ reviews. Few true dual camera phones offer this combination of flagship features. We’re sure this customer-centricity will delight Indian smartphone buyers,” said Sachin Bansal, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman, Flipkart.
Hrishikesh Thite, Category Head, Billion, added, “Our extensive research of Indian smartphone buyers revealed major pain points of battery, camera, storage etc. We developed the Billion Capture+ keeping these in mind and are delivering it at a compelling price point. It is a truly made for India phone.”
The Billion Capture+ comes with a flagship 13MP+13MP dual rear camera setup. Its powerful rear cameras are twinned with RGB and monochrome sensors that work like the human eye, and dual tone flash to capture vibrant colours in vivid detail. It produces stunning pictures with the help of other premium features such as ‘super night mode’ that captures double the light even at night, ‘Portrait Mode’ for clear background highlights, and ‘Depth of Field’ to capture minute details with the dual sensors that gauge real depth in an image.
The smartphone also boasts a 3,500mAh battery for up to two days of uninterrupted battery life. Its USB Type C charger equipped with Quick Charge™ out of the box gives an amazing seven hours of battery life within just 15 minutes of charging.
