Micromax A40 Bolt Phone with 4.5 inch display and Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread OS launched. Check Micromax A40 Bolt specs, features, quick review.

Micromax Bolt series of smartphones are basically the low cost devices powered with Android 2.3 Gingerbread version since its launch. Just where Micromax left the Bolt series with A35 phone, A40 Bolt is with 4.5 inches TFT touchscreen display providing 480 x 854 pixels resolution and the same old & outdated Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread operating system version. Android 2.3 version doesn’t make sense when there are low cost Android 4.0 and higher phones are available in the market. Disappointment does end there as its powered with 1 GHz Spreadtrum SC6820 processor knowing MediaTek chipset is low cost one and 512 MB RAM is average match to processor.Micromax Bolt A40
