Flipkart, the e-commerce giant has come up with a new private brand called Billion. The brand covers everything – from kitchenware to clothes and even gadgets! Today, Flipkart has launched the first smartphone under the brand of Billion and it is named as Billion Capture+.
As the name suggests, the phone includes the essence of photography and does its best to provide you with beautiful pictures. Billion is a ‘Made for India’ brand which is designed and innovated after the needs of Indians. The products are affordable, durable and excellent in quality, according to Flipkart.
What all is there in the Billion Capture+? Let’s find out.
Billion Capture+ Specs and everything else
According to Flipkart, the Capture+ covers the flamboyance of India with its amazing camera and picture quality. The phone is graced with a dual rear camera setup of 13 MP + 13 MP with a dual tone flash to cover all moments perfectly. In addition to the impressive rear camera setup, the phone has been made to click meticulous shots at night and in low light.
The cameras have many scintillating features like the bokeh shots offering a depth of field effect. According to Flipkart, “The dual rear camera works just like the human eye, with RGB and monochrome sensors working in tandem to capture vibrant colors in vivid detail.”
The portrait mode allows you to capture amazing highlights in the background and this is just one of the best features of the Capture+.
The front camera has an 8 MP sensor for clicking cute selfies with amazing details covered in depth.
Battery life, processor, and RAM
The Billion Capture+ has a 3,500mAh battery which can last up to 7 hours with just 15 minutes of charge. The phone extensively focusses on cameras and battery, and hence, fast charging is supported well on the Capture+. There is a USB Type C charger with Quickcharge™ out of the box, a feature that has been exclusive only to the premium phones like LG V30 and Galaxy C9 Pro. It has been in the news that the phone can last for up to two days if it has been charged completely.

Flipkart has tried hard to make this product as India specific with speed, reliability and the long-lasting battery that we Indians always long for.
Sachin Bansal, Flipkart co-founder, and Executive Chairman says, “Billion aims to make high-quality everyday products accessible to all Indians who are today limited by choice & budget when it comes to world-class quality. By making these products in India, we will create an impact on both the manufacturing eco-system in the country and the skills of young workers.
