@Sarathkumar Chandrasekaran • 27 Aug, 2014 Impressive front cam and swipe features. The a price tag of 10k it's little high priced when we compare to other new competitors.
@Divyaprakash KC • 27 Aug, 2014 What kind of processor is it? I think it must be a Mediatek processor. Maybe from this origin.
@Ankita Katdare • 27 Aug, 2014 That's the thing with homegrown companies in India, they mostly don't have a detailed tech specs sheet.
Check for yourself -
They haven't mentioned the kind of processors anywhere on the official website or the store.

It will be fun to read the comments people make after buying phones - especially equipped with Mediatek processors - purely for gaming 😉. They see 'quad core' and jump to buy the those phones only to get disappointed later on.

I found a processor description here however no idea how did they get this.
