Micromax has been teasing Doodle 2 on Facebook page for a week now, also there were news round the internet from confirmed sources, claiming that Micromax will launch a 5.7 Inch Device Micromax A240 this week. Today Micromax Doodle 2 A240 got listed on Flipkart with a coming soon tag. Yes ! doodle 2 is Micromax A240 itself.
This phone from Micromax comes with a massive 5.7 Inch display, which is line with the current trends where we see many upcoming large Display devices like GioneeX817, ZOPO ZP 990 and Smart NaMo phablet. The display has 1280 x 720 HD resolutions. The pixel density of around 258 ppi is definitely an improvement over the predecessor Micromax Canvas Doodle(185 ppi).
The processor of this device remains the same as Canvas Doodle A111. It is powered by a 1.2 GHz Quad core MT6589 processor. After Canvas 4 we expected Micromax to at least provide a turbo processor with this smartphone. The RAM capacity has not been specified yet but it can be expected to be around 1GB. The internal memory has been enhanced to 12 GB which can be further extended to 32 GB using MicroSD card support. The Operating System of this smartphone is Android 4.2 Jelly bean.
The camera features have also been improved. This device comes with a 12 MP primary camera with Dual LED flash for low light Photography. The front camera is pretty good too at 5 MP. This is pretty standard camera specification with this price range and we will have to wait for the actual device to really judge the camera performance.
The battery capacity is good at 2600 mAh and will give you a talk time of 8 Hrs on 2G. This is also strictly average battery performance. The software tweaks in Canvas 4 will most likely be present in Micromax Canvas Doodle 2 as well, as it is evident from the pictures that this device too comes with blow air or shake to Unlock feature. The stylus from the predecessor doodle A111 didn’t perform very well, hope this one works better.
Over all Micromax has not specified any feature that was particularly Awe-inspiring, the specifications are above average and display quality has been improved. The price of this smartphone is expected to be around 18,000 INR and it has already been listed on Flipkart.
