Videocon has launched its budget Cube 3 smartphone, with a SOS application as its highlight. Videocon Cube 3 costs Rs 8,490 and is available via offline channels. The smartphone will start selling online as well in a week. The smartphone is 4G-enabled, and supports Reliance Jio Preview SIM card.
Videocon Cube 3 has a 5-inch HD IPS display with 2.5D curved glass. It features a plastic body with cube design at the back. The smartphone is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6735 processor coupled with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory (expandable up to 64GB via microSD card). There’s 13MP rear camera with dual LED flash and an 5MP front camera. Videocon Cube 3 runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It is backed by a 3,000mAh battery and 20 per cent fast charging.
The SOS-Be Safe app comes with several features like Alert, Walk with ME and reach on time. The power button in Cube 3 acts as an SOS button that can be customised to send alerts along with the GPS location to friends. Walk with ME sends location of a user at regular intervals to their emergency contacts. The frequency can be set by the user. There’s also Reach On Time that sends an alert if a user hasn’t reached a particular destination at the set time.
