S Mobility, which is better known for its smartphones and tablets under the brand name of Spice Mobiles has been off the circuit when it comes to announcing new devices lately but the company is in no mood to being totally left out in the race to capture the market and thus it has announced the launch of a new budget smartphone called the Spice Stellar Mettle Icon Mi- 506 which packs in some nice specifications in a all metallic body and a price tag of Rs.6,999.


The Spice Stellar Mettle Icon comes with a large 5 inch display, which is not so common in the smartphones of this price range but things are catching up and it has a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels which is managable these days.

Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with Spice’s own UI runs the show on the Spice Stellar Mettle Icon.
