Adding to the large number of low-cost Android phones being unleashed upon us, Karbonn now has two more handsets under its Smart Duple Series. The A21 and the A9+ have been available at online stores for almost a month now; this official release by the company means you can buy them offline too.

Sporting a 4.5" capacitive touchscreen with 480x800 pixels, the handset offers 3G Support in SIM 1 and 2G for SIM2. It works with quad-band GSM (900, 1800, 1900, 2100 MHz) frequencies.
