Indian tech company Reliance Retail has launched the Reliance Lyf Flame 5, the company’s latest budget 4G smartphone with VoLTE. The launch is coming just weeks after Reliance launched the Lyf Flame 6 smartphone.
The Reliance Lyf Flame 5 has a 4-inch WVGA Touchscreen display with Asahi Dragontrail Glass protection and is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor with Mali 400 MP2 GPU.
The pocket-friendly device also runs on Android 5.1 (Lollipop) and on the camera aspect, sports a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, similar to the Lyf Flame 6. However, the Reliance Lyf Flame 5 has a 5-megapixel auto focus rear camera with LED flash.
On the memory plane, the Reliance Lyf Flame 5 features a lowly 512MB RAM ( so much for a cheap handset) and also features 4GB of on-board storage which is expandable via a microSD card up to 32GB.
It has dual SIM support, similar to most other Lyf smartphones but while one of the SIM slot accepts a standard SIM card, the other slot only takes a micro SIM. The entire device gets its power from a 1650mAh battery.
Connectivity options available include; 4G LTE / 3G HSPA+, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS. The device also feature FM Radio and yes, the 3.5mm audio jack is present. One great feature is that both SIM slots are 4G enabled but only one can work at 4G at a time while the other SIm will hand on to 2G.
