Nowadays lots of Chinese companies are getting attracted towards Indian market. Till now two big companies UMI and JiaYu has made their official launch in India. Now one more company is ready to fight with well stabilized Indian brands like Micromax, Karbonn, Celkon etc. I hope it will be a healthy competition which will outcome some quality products atreasonable prices.
Mogu is entering Indian market with world’s cheapest Android phablet (so called by the company itself). Dubbed as Mogu S1 it costs only $48 at initial stage. Till now, Micromax and Karbonn are two big Indian names which have entered their Phablet race but now it seems that they are going to receive tough competition from outsider’s, especially Chinese firms. Here in this article I am going to discuss about full specs of Mogu S1.
Mogu S1 features: It flaunts a 5 inch touchscreen with 800×480 pixels resolution. Powered by a single core processor it runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS. Although gone are the days of Gingerbread but such a low cost phablet is surely going to hit the market with a boom. It supports only 2G network which can give you average internet speed with EDGE technology.
3 MP rear and VGA front facing camera is fitted which allows users to experience both stillimage capturing as well as face to face chatting experience at real low cost. GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3.5 mm Jack further enhances the connectivity level. It too comes with a micro USB port which can be connected to any USB version 2 device. In short it is a perfect device when seen from connectivity point of view. GPS at $48 is somewhat which don’t comes to hears usually. 2000 mAh battery is stuffed inside which gives above average backup time.
So Mogu S1 comes with:
- 5 inch screen having 800×480 pixels resolution
- Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS
- Processor – 1GHz single core processor
- 3 MP rear, VGA front facing camera
- 2000 mAh battery

Price and availability: Mogu S1 is launched with $48 starting cost. According to Mogu officials they are very soon going to open their retail showrooms in New Delhi and Mumbai so you can directly purchase it from there. I am sure that they will unveil this phablet online too. So please keep your eyes active on all big online commerce stores.
Mogu future plans in India: Mogu very soon is going to unveil two new smartphones in India. One will be based on dual core processor and other on Quad Core. The dual core phone will house 4.5 inches screen and Rs. 7000 to 8000 price. The other phone will come with 13 MP camera and approx. 13000 price.
