Continuing with its strategy of offering affordable handsets, Indian handset maker Micromax will launch an Android 2.2 based dual camera handset A70, a successor to A60, in May.
“A70 will be launched in the third week of May and it will be priced at around Rs 9,000,” said sources familiar with the development in Micromax to The Mobile Indian.
In the Android based dual camera category, Micromax A70 will be the cheapest handset in the market after Samsung Galaxy S i9003 which is priced at Rs 19,000.
Micromax A70 will feature a 3.2 inch TFT capacitive display, a 5 MP rear camera, a VGA front camera and a 1450 mAh battery.
Our sources further said that Mircomax, even after launching A70, will continue with production of A60 as it runs on Android 2.1, doesn’t have dual camera and comes at a different price point.
Micromax joined the Android handset bandwagon some time back with the launch of A60 priced at about Rs 7,000. As of now, Micromax A60 is one of the most affordable Android handsets available in the market.
