Micromax will introduce its next flagship smartphone very soon, according to sources with information on the matter. The new smartphone will be dubbed as A240 and sport a 5.7-inch 720p HD display, the sources told us. While the exact launch date is unclear at this moment, we are expecting an announcement as early as next week.
With such a giant display on-board, Micromax A240 will be competing with Samsung’s Galaxy Mega 5.8. The smartphone will be powered by 1.2GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6589 processor and come with Android 4.2 and 12MP rear camera with LED flash.
According to sources, A240 will also pack 5MP front camera, dual-SIM support, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and 2,600 mAh battery.
In terms of the software customisations, the phone is expected to include all tweaks that were made available as a part of A210 Canvas 4 including support for vertical panorama in camera app, video pinning to home-screen support, Flip to mute, and Smart Pause.
Pricing: Micromax A240 will most likely carry a price-tag around INR 18,000 similar to Canvas 4 launch price.
Micromax is having a pretty good year with its smartphone sales reaching all time high thanks to Canvas phone sales, however there have been a few setbacks as well like the recent bribery charges on company co-founder Rajesh Agrawal and patent dispute with Ericsson.
