    Both helium devices doesn't seems to be very impressive except their processor
    Qualcomm MSM8926 chipset which has a 1.4GHz Cortex A7 Quad Core processor, 1GB of LPDDR3 600MHz RAM and a 450 MHz Adreno 305 graphics processing unit
    4 / 8 GB internal memory now a days is very common or on the lesser side, I was just wondering that does someone thinks of presenting VGA camera still (Helium 45 front)??

    Other than fairly decent processor, I do not beleive in the price range they are presenting they can fight with Samsung / HTC / MOTO.

    Any one knows if they have plans for Indian release ? (If not that will be a wise decision 😁).
