In the move to enrich its low-end KitKat smartphones portfolio, India's top smartphone maker Micromax has today released its latest ultra-affordable Bolt A065 smartphone via online retailer Saholic at Rs. 3,799.
The 4-inch device might be the cheapest Android smartphone running on the latest KitKat version but in terms of other specs it is not much of an impressive phone. Although the 1.3GHz dual-core processor seems like quite a reasonable offering but it surely does lack an average camera, RAM and obviously a 3G connectivity option.
Micromax Bolt A065: Key Specifications
Micromax Bolt A065 comes with a 4-inch (800 x 480 pixels) capacitive touch screen display and is powered by a 1.3 GHz dual-core MediaTek MT6571 processor coupled with 512MB RAM. It runs on Android 4.4 (KitKat) OS. In the imaging aspect you will get to see a 2MP fixed-focus rear camera with LED flash and a 0.3MP front-facing snapper.
The smartphone houses 4GB internal storage, which can be further expanded up to 32GB via MicroSD card. Sadly, this is not a 3G phone but supports connectivity options like 2G (EDGE), Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth and obviously it is a Dual SIM (GSM + GSM) smartphone with a Dual Standby mode. The Micromax Bolt A065 uses a 2000 mAh battery to power up its system.
In the meantime, if you are not too much of a specs oriented person and just want a decent low-end smartphone, this one is comparatively better than the other smartphone in the same range and in the same Bolt series of smartphones from Micromax. However, Celkon has also recently launched an ultra-affordable smartphone called the Campus A35K powered by Android KitKat OS in the market at the Rs. 2,999. So this might be the only competition that Micromax could possibly find in this particular price range.
