Micromax X55 Blade price in India

Price : Unknown but looking at the specification the estimated price should be less than Rs. 5000.


Though the 5 MP camera with LED flash and dual SIM options look promising there is no 3G support (no EDGE) and screen resolution is not so impressive. Overall the Micromax X55 Blade’s 5MP camera may be the selling point but other features are similar to what you find on low cost handsets.
