The smartphone is priced at ₹10,999 for the 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage and at ₹12,999 for 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
The new smartphone will be called Billion Capture+ and will go on sale on the website from 15 November onwards.
On the hardware front, the smartphone is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor.
To start with the specifications, the smartphone bears a 5.5-inch Full HD display with a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, 401ppi pixel density and 2.5D Dragontrail glass. The optics arrangement houses one regular 13-megapixel RGB lens and another 13-megapixel Monochrome one which, in theory, should allow the camera to capture relatively more accurate colors than the competition. Flipkart stressed the products under the Billion name are and will always be made in India.
In terms of design, the smartphone sport a metal body. Flipkart will be offering no-cost EMIs and discounts on debit and credit cards.

Tritico is quoted saying of his uncle: "He had an outstanding sense of humor and was one of the most well-read people I ever met". Hillerman's most acclaimed work was in the role of Jonathan Higgins in the popular 1980s detective comedy-drama "Magnum, P.I".
This is the first time Flipkart is entering the smartphone market with the phone and it says that after sales services will be provided through its own F1 Info Solutions.
The new android smartphone by Flipkart had been designed and manufactured in India. Otherwise, this smartphone comes with the usual features such as a 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, USB Type-C and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
