Olive Telecom today announced that launch of India’s first Android 2.3 aka Gingerbread powered smartphone. Dubbed as Olive Smart, the smartphone will be sold under a price of INR 20,000.

Olive has not announced the availability date for the smartphone, but we expect to reach the stores pretty soon. OliveSmart packs some serious heavy specifications under a really decent price.  It features Qualcomm Snadragon MSM8255 1 Ghz processor, 4.1 inch display, 5 MP camera with a front facing camera, Android 2.3, 1400 mAh battery and HSPA+ connectivity.

Company has also partnered with Aircel to provide exclusive data offers with the smartphone. Aircel Prepaid users will get free 9 GB data to be used in three months, while Postpaid subscriber will receive 1 GB free data for six months.

At the first glance the smartphone seems to be a real winner, and we will try to confirm that in our upcoming review.

    hi
    this is the same as SpiceMi410 which i have and it now cost 13K so for 20k this wont fly they are from the same manufacturer called Fox com it also the ideosX6 in the US and cherryMobile and CSL spice and many more cant remember the other names

  • Amol

    I think olivesmart India launch plan is dropped after galaxy SL launch

  • Ajay Satija

    Hey ankit ,
    Can you please confirm whether OLIVE phone has flash light or not ??

  • ankit

    Yes Ajay u r right. No one will buy this phone at 20k,
    if phone is below 15k then wont face problem. otherwise at this rate samsung galaxy SL is best in features/Specification … just Samsung is missing Flash Light .. otherwise its rocking phone at gud rates….

    and if Olive Team is reading comments for marketing strategy ..then must think about Prices …

  • ajay satija

    I will go for Samsung glaxy Sl which cost 19500 Rs , rather then this costly phone .. having no brand image in the market

  • Ajay

    As per sales department of OLIVE ( Mr.Satvant – 09953303093) this phone will be launch at the end of thsi month , march @ 20,000 Rs

  • Ajay Satija

    Thanks Gaurav .
    I think this is the phone which we can compare with Samsung Glaxy S

  • Ajay Satija

    Hey Gaurav ,

    Specs didn’t tell anything about FM. X6 has FM but why olive guys choose to omit this fact from the official spacs. Any Idea?

  • Gautam

    @Santosh If I remember correctly, Huawei X6 is launched with Android 2.2 Froyo, but OliveSmart will be launched with Android 2.3 Gingerbread. So, along with good hardware Olive Telecom is giving a good operating system with the phone. You can also check the Olive’s website where they mentioned the same for OliveSmart V-S300

  • Abhi

  • Rohan

    I can’t make out a front facing camera in the picture. is it there?

  • Santhosh

    Ohh..come on!! thats the Huawei X6. Being a dedicated Android website , one would expect androidos.in to figure that out.But going back to prior announcements from Huawei itself, they were to launch it under their own brand name…?

    • Gaurav Shukla

      @Santhosh I know that and I recognized it the very first second I saw it, was just waiting for the 100% confirmation before putting something out for your guys..

    • Gaurav Shukla
