Micromax is planning to reveal 2 of their new Android devices in the most affordable price range. The devices are named as Micromax Bolt A59 and Micromax Bolt A28. Both of these devices have somewhat same specifications in terms of hardware and we will be talking about in detail later on in this post. The price of the article has not been mentioned yet but both of them have been listen on Flipkart.
Both of them are the low end devices, the size of display of these devices, Micromax Bolt A59 and Micromax Bolt A28 is 3.5 Inches. It is a capacitive touchscreen with the resolution of 480 x 32o pixels. Both of them use the processor clocked at the frequency of 1GHz based on the architecture of Cortex A-5 (something which has gone really obsolete).
Just to add to your info, the processor based on the same architecture was used on Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro but it had 4 cores operating at the frequency of 1.5 GHz. The primary camera on Micromax Bolt A59 is 2 MP and in case of Micromax Bolt A28 it is a VGA camera of 0.3 MP. The secondary camera is same in both the devices which is 0.3 MP.
|Model||Micromax Bolt A59||Micromax Bolt A28|
|Display||3.5 Inches, 320 x 480 pixels||3.5 Inches, 320 x 480 pixels|
|Processor||1 GHz Processor Cortex A-5||1 GHz Processor Cortex A-5|
|RAM||2 GB||512 GB|
|Internal Storage||4 GB, Extendable up to 32 GB||4 GB, Extendable up to 32 GB|

|Cameras||2 MP/ 0.3 MP||0.3 MP/ 0.3 MP|
|Battery||1500 mAh||1500 mAh|
|Price||4,542 INR||3,674 INR|
Both of them are Dual SIM devices and have the same battery strength of 1500 mAh. As per the information available at Flipkart regarding these devices Micromax Bolt A28 has 256 MB allocated as RAM memory but it seems to be awkward to see that it is 2GB in case of Micromax Bolt A59.
The operating System operating on Micromax Bolt A28 is Gingerbread (which was really not expected because it is too obsolete now) and on Micromax Bolt A59 it is Android 4.1. Micromax bolt A28 will be cheaper than Micromax Bolt A59 (as shown by the specifications of the device) but the price is yet to be known.
As per an imports tracking website named Zuaba, it seems that 20000 units of only Micromax Bolt A59 has been shipped to India and though the price has been mentioned around Rs. 2300 but after including all the taxes and duties, the final price may go up. Stay tuned to be notified when this product shows up ‘in-stock’ on Flipkart.
