The "Billion Capture+", in terms of specifications, comes with all the usual trappings you'll find on a budget phone. Touted as the Flipkart Billion Capture+, the company said has been developed keeping the Indian consumers in mind, and it's a "Made in India" smartphone. At the back, there is a horizontally placed dual-camera setup at the back, on the top left corner, with an LED flash next to it. Flipkart will offer "No Cost EMI", discounts on leading debit/credit cards for the sale of its Billion Capture+ phone. The online retailer is also touting after sales services of its Billion brand. The features in the Capture+ too have been derived from deep data-mining of millions of Flipkart customers' reviews.

In an interview, Bansal said that Flipkart will launch more products across categories such as large appliances under the Billion brand over the coming months. Hrishikesh Thite, category head, Billion said customers' major pain points in a smartphone centered around battery, camera, storage which is what they've addressed in the phone. On the connectivity front, it supports 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth, WiFi, Dual-SIM and micro USB port. "We're sure this customer-centricity will delight Indian smartphone buyers". As the company has set up more than 130 official service centres across 125 cities in India, so, after sale service is expected to perform smoothly.
