Lemon Launched a new Android 3D Smartphone

Lemon Mobiles have launched a new smartphone, Aspirational A3 for under 200$ in India (Rs. 12,000). The latest Aspirational A3 smartphone sports a 4.3-inch qHD display with a resolution of 540x960 pixels.

The device is powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM and has an 8 MP rear camera with LED flash plus a 2 MP front-facing camera. It runs on Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich which is disappointing considering that Google has rolled out Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS. It also has 4GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 32GB through microSD card.

The device is backed by a 1,640mAh battery that the company claims can deliver up to 7 hours of talk time and 250 hours of standby time.
