It is a dual-SIM mobile with VoLTE and VoWiFi support which delivers clear voice calling. The sensor on board includes an accelerometer, proximity sensor, and ambient light sensor. The device measures dimensions at 145.2x72x8.9mm. A 2450mAh battery juices up the device.
Besides, the Videocon Krypton 22 smartphone has an IR Blaster support which is a remote controlling technology. This feature allows users to use their smartphone as a remote control to operate TV sets, set-top boxes, DVD players, fans, air conditioners, stereo sound systems and more remote operated devices.
Furthermore, the handset will also allow access to SD cards and hybrid pen drives. It has a pre-installed app called Shoto which let users organise photographs and videos into albums.

Although 4G VoLTE support is becoming a common feature in latest mobiles, the VoWiFi is still not popular in India as no cellular service provider is offering this service commercially. To recall, LG has introduced the VoWiFi feature in its smartphones in India back in 2015. The company launched its LG Spirit LTE, LG G4 Stylus 4G in November 2015, in India with VoLTE and VoWiFi support.
