Karbonn has announced the launch its new Titanium S9 HD IPS Android smartphone today. Packing a 5.5-inch HD IPS display, the phone has been priced at INR 19,990, making it the most expensive phone from the stable for Karbonn.
The timing of the release of S9 Titanium is very interesting and seems to have been decided in accordance to the release of Micromax flagship Canvas 4, which will be unveiled on July 8.
Back to Karbonn S9 Titanium, the smartphone features 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM and Android 4.2. In addition, the phone comes with 13MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, and 16GB of internal storage. S9 also packs 2600 mAh battery, dual-SIM support and 3G support.

Should you buy Karbonn Titanium S9?
While, we are a little disappointed with the pricing of the phone, there are considerable improvements over Karbonn’s other smartphones. The presence of a full HD display would have been great and I would have instantly recommended the phone. As, we don’t have a full HD display and pricing is 20K, I would suggest you to weigh in your budget and choices as well as upcoming Micromax Canvas 4 very well and then decide if you want to spend INR 20,000 on Karbonn S9.
