Karbonn Mobiles today announced the launch of its Mach One Plus in India with partnering SwiftKey. The new smartphone comes with a price tag of Rs. 6,999 and features a pre-installed SwiftKey Keyboard.

The presence of SwiftKey Keyboard on the Karbonn Mach One Plus brings total 22 Indian languages, including Punjabi, Hindi, Malayalam, Assamese, Bengali, Bodo, Dogri, Gujarati, Kannada, Kashmiri, Konkani, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu. In addition, there is an exclusive Karbonn Material Light theme to give a new experience.

On announcing the launch, Shashin Devsare, Executive Director of Karbonn Mobiles, said:

“India is currently the second largest smartphone market in the world expected to touch over 650 million smartphones over the next four years. This growth is expected to be driven primarily by Socio Economic Segments B, C and D with limited digital skills and English language fluency. Vernacularising the smartphone experience would play a pivotal role in connecting the next 100 million users under the smartphone fold. Our exclusive partnership with SwiftKey is aimed at empowering Indian smartphone users with the choice to type and share their thoughts in their local language by bringing the most advanced keyboard solution on Mach One Plus. Extending the benefit to existing users, Karbonn customers would receive an exclusive over-the-air update with the latest SwiftKey Keyboard.”

SwiftKey created a team in India for designing a new typing experience. The keyboard layouts have been redesigned and enhanced with contextually aware keys to provide an improved typing experience to native Indian users.
