Indian handset manufacturer Micromax mobiles seems to be on a launching spree with the announcement of launching 30 new devices in the country this year. And recently it added a new member to its Smarty series with the all new Micromax A54 Smarty which lately appeared on company's official site along with some e-commerce portals. This is the company's entry level device in the low-end smartphone segment which comes with some basic and decent features and a low price tag. If you are a first time Android phone user looking for a budget smartphone then this is surely an option worth considering.
Micromax A54 Smarty pictures which have been rolling on the internet from quite along time are enough to suggest what will the device be like. It has a bar form body measuring 112.5x59.2x14.45 mm and weighing 102 grams which makes pretty short and slim. The Micromax A54 Smarty features a 3.5 inch HVGA capacitive touch screen which comes with a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels and the phone comes with only one 3.0 megapixel primary camera at the back. The camera comes with digital zoom but does not have a a flash or auto focus feature. It is also capable of some decent quality video recording. It comes with dual-SIM functionality and runs on Google Android Operating System 2.3 Gingerbread platform which though is pretty old as all the new devices come with Android v4.1 or above but one can run most of the available apps with the help of this OS also.
This device is powered by a 1 GHz processor along with 256 MB RAM and 512 MB of internal storage but is also expandable upto 32 GB with micro SD card. And we must not claim it be anything good or bad for this is nothing new as most of the devices of this range comes with similar specifications. On the connectivity front it comes with bluetooth and Wi-Fi for wireless connectivity and with USB port also for quicker data transfer. The phone also supports GPRS and 3G connectivity. And ensuring that your entertainment never stops in between it has a 1300 mAh battery which gives a maximum standby time of 170 hours and a maximum talktime of 4 hours. Micromax A54 Smarty price in India as per some online portals is Rs. 4,659 and at this price it will compete with likes of Lava Iris N350, Karbonn Smart A2 etc.
I want to share a story here that Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 will come with 8 inch screen in the first half of 2013 in India.
