Celkon A119 Signature HD Unboxing

Celkon A119 Signature HD-3

Yet another entry into the mid range burgeoning phablet category of the Indian market is the Celkon A119 Signature HD. Celkon is relatively new to the space and with the launch of the A119 Signature HD, it follows the legion of Indian “manufacturers” who make smartphones in China. With a respectable spec sheet, the A119 Signature HD is aimed at upsetting the established players like Micromax and karbonn, vying for the coveted “most value for money” device that is ever to land in the market. We have got the device at our labs for review, and here is the unboxing of the phone, with a quick hardware tour –


Box contents

Celkon A119 Signature HD-0

The box comes with all the necessary accessories and components that you usually see these days. There is the device of course, the micro USB cable, the travel adaptor and the in ear headset. Along with all the components comes the usual assortment of information booklets, the user guide and the warranty card.

Our first impressions have been really good so far. The build quality is surprisingly decent, with a solid reaffirming feel in the hand. The 1280×720 display at 5 inches has a 294 ppi of pixel density and looks like it is pretty much the same as the one of the Micromax A116 Canvas HD, so that means it is pretty great too. Powered by a MediaTek MT6557 Dual Core 1 GHz Cortex A9 processor, and 1 GB of RAM, with graphics powered by the PowerVR SGX 531, this might not be a powerhouse if you are looking for that kind of a device. We noticed a bit of lag and stutter to back that claim.

The 12 megapixel rear camera too is surprisingly nice, with the 3 MP front facing camera yet again shocking us with decent image quality. But do note that these are just our knee jerk first impressions and it may change over the time. Do wait for our full review soon. Here are some more pics of the box contents and the device –
