India in recent years has witnessed a resurgence of feature phones. While the mainstream mobile market is oversaturated with smartphones, feature phones have found themselves a sizeable chunk of the market. While Nokia brought back the nostalgic 3310 and XpressMusic in a redesigned form factor, Saregama has now launched a Carvaan feature phone priced under the 2.5K.

The key feature of the Carvaan mobile is that it comes preloaded with 1500 Hindi songs. The songs feature artists like Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, M. Rafi, Asha Bhosle, and many more known musical legends. The tracks can be without an internet connection or commercial breaks, making it an uninterrupted experience for the listener. The device features an 8GB memory card with 2GB of free data for users to load up videos, music, images, and more. Keeping up its focus on offline music, Carvaan mobile offers a 3.5mm headphone jack, Aux out, Bluetooth, and FM Radio. The device also features multi-language support.
The Saregama Carvaan Mobile is available in two screen sizes, 2.4-inch, and 1.8-inch respectively. It features a 0.3MP camera at the back and a LED torch. The feature phone houses a MediaTek process with 2GB RAM and 32MB storage. Whereas, it has a 2,500mAh battery unit. While the 2.4-inch variant is priced at Rs 2,490, the 1.8-inch will cost interested buyers Rs 1,990 respectively.
