It certainly goes without saying that- the mid-range phones have always been an odd segment in the mobile handset vertical. Interestingly, the hardware they have got to offer is never on the high-end side, but when the onus is on fulfilling the criteria of affordable price, no one can beat a nice mid-range smartphone.
Indian handset manufacturer Micromax is bringing yet another device in the affordable segment. Micromax A190, the upcoming smartphone, will be the first handset from the company’s stable that will go on to feature a hexa-core processor.
It was just last week that Xolo had introduced the Play 6X-1000 braced with a similar processor, and apparently Micromax does not want to be left behind in this digital war. To add on, the handset will be powered by the MediaTek MT6591 chipset, together with 2GB of RAM.
If this was not enough, the rumoured phone will go on to make available16GB of on-board memory. The Android 4.4 Kitkat torqued handset could feature a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, alongside a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter.
As of now, there’s no specific word available as to when the new hexa-core Micromax A190 might go all official. Nevertheless, the forthcoming phone shouldn’t be priced in excess of Rs. 15,000, with its above average specifications taken into account.
The Micromax A190 will inevitably face stiff competition from the recently launched Xolo Play 6X 1000 and the Karbonn Titanium Hexa, for that matter. The verdict as of now seems that both the devices arrive with hexa-core processors, and have more-or-less similar specs.
