Indian smartphone brand Swipe launched its 4G-enabled smartphone dubbed as Swipe Elite Note earlier this year at a price of Rs 7,999. Initially, the phone was being sold exclusively on Flipkart, but now available on major e-commerce platforms like Amazon and Snapdeal. Well, the good news is – the Swipe Elite Note has received a price cut and is available for just Rs 6,699 on Snapdeal.
Design-wise, the Swipe Elite Note is crafted with a metallic frame featuring a sandstone back cover and a thickness of just 8.4mm. It sports a 5.5-inch HD IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. Furthermore, the display also puts on 2.5D curved glass with Dragontrail protection on top. Under the hood, the phone draws its power from a quad-core MediaTek MTK6735 chipset ticking at 1.3GHz. Accompanying the processor, it features 3GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage. The phone also houses an IR sensor letting you control wide-range of home appliances from the comfort of your couch.
For photography, the Swipe Elite Note houses a 13-megapixel rear camera backed with f/2.0 aperture and an LED flash. Up front, it flaunts a 5-megapixel snapper for clicking selfies. The phone runs Freedom OS built on top of Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It is a Dual SIM phone and also extends support to 4G VoLTE letting you access high-speed internet.
On the connectivity front, the phone gets all the standard features such as Wi-Fi, GPS/A-GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, 3.5mm Audio Jack, and Micro-USB port. Apart from missing out on the fingerprint scanner, the Swipe Elite Note looks like a good deal at the given price.
