The budget smartphone market in India is now dominated by the Chinese brands. With the intense competition, the consumers are now offered with high-end smartphones without digging deep into their pockets. However, the Indian smartphone manufacturer CENTRiC offers a good package with its latest CENTRiC A1 smartphone. It is priced at Rs. 10,999 and sports relatively high-end specifications. The CENTRiC A1 comes with a premium looking metal clad unibody design.
Now, let’s talk about the four standout features of the CENTRiC A1 smartphone.
Not many devices in the budget segment come with fast charging support. However, the CENTRiC A1 not only supports fast charging but also uses the Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 technology. The brand offers a 3,000mAh battery on the CENTRiC A1 that gives up to 15 hours of continuous talk time. In case of an empty battery, the users can get required juice to offer 4 hours of talk time with just 10 minutes of charging. With the CENTRiC A1, there won’t be any worries even with the low battery notifications.
The smartphone features a circular fingerprint sensor placed on the rear of the device. It adds an additional layer of security to the device. The fingerprint sensor on the CENTRiC A1 sits in a very convenient place, i.e. just below the rear camera. Even with the single hand usage, you can easily reach the fingerprint sensor. It detects up to five different fingers and can unlock the device in just 0.02 seconds.
While the world is moving towards single port for charging and connecting the wired headphones, the CENTRiC A1 offers the standard 3.5mm audio jack. It also supports DTS Sound for providing immersive sound experience. The users can take advantage of the DTS Sound with both the loudspeaker as well as headphones. It comes with a single speaker and is located at the bottom edge of the device.
In the camera department, the CENTRiC A1 offers a 13MP autofocus camera on the rear and an 8MP fixed focus camera on the front. Both the cameras are accompanied by LED flash for capturing better photos in any lighting condition. The captures from the CENTRiC A1 should be good enough for posting on social media websites like Facebook and Instagram. It can also record videos at a maximum resolution of 1080p.
Apart from these four features, the smartphone also comes with a Full HD display & Snapdragon 430 processor. It feels very slim by measuring just 7.8mm thickness.
