Micromax A240 Android smartphone with 5.7-inch display reportedly set for launch next week

After launching the Micromax Canvas 4 earlier this year, Micromax seems to be readying yet another flagship device. AndroidOS.in reports that this forthcoming phone will be called the A240 and could be announced as early as next week.

According to the report, the A240 is likely to flaunt a 5.7-inch 720p display and will be powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT6589 processor clocked at 1.2GHz. Other features likely to be included are 1GB of RAM, 12-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, 5-megapixel secondary camera, 16GB of expandable internal memory and a 2,600mAh battery.

Connectivity-wise the device will feature dual-SIM support and on the software front, will run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean along with the various add-ons like vertical panorama in camera app, video pinning to home-screen support, Flip to mute, and Smart Pause that were introduced on the Canvas 4.

The report further claims that the device will be priced somewhere around Rs 18,000, which is similar the launch price of the Canvas 4. The A240 could be Micromax’s answer to Samsung’s Galaxy Mega series of phablets.
