Update: we have confirmed new that this device is now called the Micromax A85 , the specs remain final.

Whats up butterflies of the inter-webs, we have exclusive news for you folks. Micromax is working on a dual core smartphone for the Indian Market. Currently dubbed “PowerPhone” expect a “Poseidon”, “Titan”  or “Hercules” type of name on launch.

The new device will be based around a phone made in the depths of Chinese Manufactories. Micromax will add its design hues but more or less the specs will remain the same.

Rumored Specs will include:

  • A Tegra 2 Processor  with  Geforce8
  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread
  • 1 GHZ dual core – 2 x Arm Cortex A9 processors
  • 512 MB RAM- 8 Gb onboard storage
  • 3.8 inch screen with 480×800 pixel resolution
  • Capacitive Touch Screen with 4 Multitouch points
  • 5 Megapixel camera with tap focus and intelligent illumination
Rumors point to a possible drop of the onboard storage to make the device affordable. There is also a front facing camera and a 1650mah battery. 
Whatever may be the case the device is set to launch later this year with a price tag of less than  Rs. 18,000/-

 Hold on while we try to get an official word on this, so to happen Rumor!

Update: we have confirmed new that this device is now called the Micromax A85 , the specs remain final.

Remember we dropped first information on this device back in June!

    Re_branded K-Touch W700

    well what about A70’s android 2.3 upgradiblity???

  • Prasad Kurundkar

    I was wondering if A70 was so equipped at such competitive price, why have Micromax held it from adding video calling by 3G network into it. There were leakages stating the upgrade shall be soon on board with this. But there is hardly anything shared about it in A85. On the other hand expected price tag limit has no comparison to that of A70. I think its going to be one more upsetting thing for those who are looking value for money.

  • mukul dubey

    • Gopikrishna

      Go for Galaxy S or Galaxy S II or Sonyerricson XPERIA Arc

      And about the update while we contacted the MicromaX Press Desk we came to know that they are not going to provide an official update to 2.3 on A70 . But still it have grown to a popular mobile within its announcing and so might be unofficial software updates might be available .

      • Gopikrishna

        Ya i support this and i give preference to Galaxy S and S II as even they support Video calling which Mi410 A70 And Xperia Mini Pro Doesn’t support…

    • Binoj

      spice mi 410 will be a good choice

  • Gopikrishna

    This phone seems like a re branding of the Chinese phone K-Touch W700 and am not sure as a growing graphic designer i am in a doubt weather the label micromax in the Above pic is an addition with PS by some crazy dudes. But still how did you confirm this Barath ?

  • Binoj

    it is a rebranted china phone of
    K-Touch W700

  • Ssmantri

  • Binoj

  • Wahid_d786

    It should be around Rs 15k then THUMBS UP otherwise thumbs down ,even compared to HTC,Samsung orLG the body would be cheap plastics only

  • Revanchdg

  • Nehalchoraria
