While the CC11A has been deigned especially for student’s use, the Coconics C314A is water resistant. While the Coconics CC11A sports an 11-inch display, the Coconics C314A sports a 14-inch display. All three of them have a battery-life of up to 8 hours. The company said that the laptops will be available for distribution from the second quarter of 2019.
M Sivasankar, Secretary IT, Chairman of KSITM said, “Our vision of Coconics is to create a vibrant hardware manufacturing ecosystem in the state of Kerala. This includes collaboration between the innovative start-up companies, and small and medium IT enterprises both in the Government and Private sector. This manufacturing ecosystem would over a period of time cater to the needs of Kerala, our country, and also to the global demand by producing hardware products of remarkable quality.”
Now to talk about the specifications of the three models. The Coconics CC11B sports an 11-inch FHD IPS Display and is powered by Intel Celeron N3350. The laptop has a 4GB RAM and comes with 64GB onboard storage. The CC11B runs Windows 10 OS and sports a metallic casing. The device also has USB-Type C and is very portable. As the company claims, the Coconics CC11B is especially designed for frequent travellers. The Coconics CC11A is powered by Intel Celeron N4000 and sports an 11-inch HD Display. The laptop has 2GB RAM, 64GB storage and operates on Windows 10.

Alexander Varghese, CAO of UST Global said, “We are excited about Coconics, India’s latest OEM/ODM, built in line with Government of India’s ‘Make in India’ initiative. With the larger vision of creating a hardware ecosystem in the State of Kerala, we intend to leverage our relationship with Intel to take this venture to the next level. We aim to utilize the unique partnership model with the government and the strong ESDM partners already available in the state to bring in more manufacturing to the country.”
These laptops will be aimed at first time laptop users and will fall in the budget segment. We will not be surprised, if we see price of under Rs 20,000 for them.
