Karbonn K9 Kavach 4G with Fingerprint Scanner and BHIM app integration launched in India for ₹5290

Last month, Indian manufacturer Karbonn launched the Aura Note 2 in India which came with a fashion app based on Artificial Intelligence. Now today, the company has launched yet another smartphone called Karbonn K9 Kavach 4G which comes with integration for BHIM app.


The Karbonn K9 Kavach 4G is powered by an unknown quad-core processor which is clocked at 1.25 GHz and is paired with 1 GB RAM. The device sports a 5 MP camera at the back which is accompanied with dual-LED flash. There’s also the fingerprint scanner at the back along with speakers. This fingerprint scanner can also be used to take pictures, authenticate purchases and lock apps.

On the front, there’s a 5-inch HD display above which is the 5 MP secondary camera. Karbonn has also included LED flash on the front so that you can take relatively brighter selfies in low-light conditions. Having said that, the biggest highlight of the Karbonn K9 Kavach 4G is the BHIM app integration. This smartphone comes with firmware level integration of BHIM app which was launched last year by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to encourage the use of digital payments.
