A single core smartphone Micromax Bolt A40 running Android 2.3.5 gets silently listed on the Micromax official website. This handset sports a 4.5 inch screen and does not support the 3G network.

Micromax Bolt A40 another low spec phone from Micromax runs on an outdated Android Gingerbread OS and is powered by 1GHz SC6820 Spreadtrum chipset.  The SC6820 is cortex A5 based and supports up to WVGA resolution. It’s a low cost, low powered chipset coupled with mali 400 GPU.

The 4.5 inch TFT touch screen supports 854×480 pixels resolution with 16M colors. The Bolt A40 comes with 512MB RAM, 512MB storage of which 75MB is allocated for app installation – plus external card support of up to 32GB. This dual SIM handset houses a 2MP camera with flash support. It’s a fixed focus camera; there is a front camera too of 0.3MP resolution.

Other features are 2G (EDGE), 3G is not supported, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1. I am not sure if it comes with built in GPS. A 1500 mAh battery gives a standby time of 175 hours and estimated talktime is up to 4 hours.

The Micromax Bolt A40 price has not yet been disclosed but I think it should be under Rs. 5000.
