As more and more smartphone OEMs are targeting Nepal, the pricing of smartphones has gotten really competitive. Even entry-level devices are packing quite decent specifications for their price range. Doing so is Micromax with their newly released Micromax Bolt Mega Q397. Priced at Rs. 10,560, the device features an HD display, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, 16GB of onboard storage and a 2650mAh battery.
Talking about its specifications in detail, the device sports a tall 5.5-inch IPS LCD display with the resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. It is impressive that the company has packed a HD display in such a low price range.
Under the hood, the Micromax Bolt Mega Q397 is powered by a 1.3 GHz Quad-core Spreadtrum SC7731 SoC. The processor is supported by 1GB RAM and Mali 400MP as its GPU. The device runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. Micromax hasn’t mentioned whether the Bolt Mega Q397 will receive Android 7.0 Nougat or not. Memory wise, the device features 16GB of internal storage which can be expanded up to 32GB via a microSD card.
Smartphone users are into selfies, and Micromax looks to cash in on that as the front facing camera of the Bolt Mega Q397 features a LED flash. Although a 2-megapixel secondary camera doesn’t sound good on papers, the front facing flash will surely help to take some good selfies. On the back, there is an 8-megapixel rear facing camera.
The Micromax Bolt Mega Q397 packs a little bit of weight weighing 174.7 grams. Other features of the device include dual SIM (Normal + Micro) with 3G connectivity, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS and, of course, a headphone jack, something not even some of the big hitting smartphones feature these days. A 2650mAh battery runs the device which will last long because of its 720p display.
