Spice is one of the lesser known Indian handset manufacturer, but just like its peers it keeps churning out smartphones regularly. The company recently was in news for its Android One smartphone dubbed as Spice Dream Uno 498. Spice has once again outed an entry level smartphone in the form of Spice Stellar 520n, which is an upgraded version of Stellar 520 launched back in July. Spice has partnered with online retail store Amazon.in to exclusively sell Stellar 520n, which goes on sale from Thursday.
We feel that Spice Stellar 520n provides excellent bang for the buck and free flip cover coupled with three colorful back covers are icing on the cake! Spice Stellar 520n is a dual-SIM (GSM+GSM) device and the good thing is that, both the SIM’s support 3G connectivity.
On the lines of its predecessor, Stellar 520n also features 5-inch HD display with 720×1280 pixel resolution and hence delivers a pixel density of 294 ppi. A qud-core processor (unspecified chipset) clocked at 1.3 GHz takes care of the processing needs along with 1 GB of RAM. On the back panel, we have a 8 megapixel camera with LED flash support, while at the same time a 2 megapixel has been installed at the front. This device runs Android 4.4 Kitkat on board.
“We are delighted to launch the Stellar 520n exclusively on Amazon, thereby offering our customers a superior product and retail experience at the same time.

We are convinced that with Amazon’s excellent reach and our great product, this exclusive tie up will enchant our customers.” said Prashant Bindal, CEO of Spice Mobility.
