Another Micromax handset called the Micromax A68 Smarty 4.0 now gets listed on lalajionline for a price of Rs. 7,499. This is a 1GHz, ICS powered handset with 5MP camera.
The Micromax A68 it seems is here to complete with the Kabonn A15. However price wise the Karbonn A15 still wins. The A68 is dual SIM phone with a 1GHz processor and 512MB RAM. The specifications listed on the lalajionline may not be 100% accurate.
As per the specs the internal storage is 2GB, micro SD card of up to 32GB is supported. The display screen is 4 inches with 800×480 pixel resolution. The handset is 9.9mm thin. There is a 5MP camera with fixed focus and LED flash.
Interestingly there is no mention of 3G, instead 2G network is mentioned. I think for the price it should have 3G. Other features included are Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, micro USB and 3.5mm jack. Not sure if GPS is included it’s not mentioned in on the box pack.
Micromax had recently launched the Micromax A25 Smarty a low cost 2G phone. The Micromax A68 comes with 1600 mAh battery that gives a talktime of about 5 hours and standby time of about 6 days. Looking at the specs 4 inch screen and ICS OS is good but the price is much more than the Karbonn A15, moreover the 5MP fixed focus camera will not be enough to convince users. What do you say?
