Swipe disrupts Indian handset market with a Rs 4666 dual-4G smartphone

Bangalore,  November 4, 2015: Leading   Pune-headquartered  Indianmobile technology company Swipe Technologies,   has unveiled  the second iteration of its flagship smart phone -- Swipe Elite 2 -- arguably the most  affordable  4G dual SIM phone in the market today.  
Rs 4,666  device  goes on sale exclusively  through online channels  at Flipkart from November 8, with a small edge for customers of  cab aggregator  Uber in four cities: in Pune, Hyderabad, Bangalore and Delhi . They can  upload their  Uber receipts  to the Swipe website  and  have the phone  home delivered ahead of the  national launch. A few lucky winners will also stand a chance to win the Elite 2 smartphone by engaging with Uber and Swipe via a contest on social media.
Founder & CEO of Swipe Technologies: said: “Elite  has been a huge success for Swipe, and it was sold out on Flipkart in record time when launched in August this yearWe strongly believe that Elite  2 will be a true Value for Money proposition that the brand has to offer. Partnering with Uber will enable us to target the tech-savvy, aspirational online customers to get their hands on this new device.’’
Powered by a 64 bit 1.3 GHz QuadCore Processor and 1GB RAM, Elite  2 has an internal memory of 8 GB, which is expandable up to 32 GB. It comes with a 4.5” qHD IPS Display,  an 8 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front camera.
