As reported before, the Dual-SIM Micromax Bolt A51 sports a 3.5-inch capacitive (480 320 pixels) display and is powered by an 832MHz single-core Broadcom processor and 256MB RAM. Other features included on this phone are a 2-megapixel rear camera, a VGA front camera, 512MB internal storage with a microSD slot for cards up to 32GB and a 1,500mAH battery which according to the company gives 4.5 hours of talktime and 140 hours of standby time. In terms of software the Bolt A51 runs on Android 2.3.7 Gingerbread and like the Bolt A35, it too comes pre-loaded with Flash Transfer , an app that allows users to share multimedia content across other Android phones over Wi-Fi connection even when there is no data connectivity, which sounds a lot like Wi-Fi Direct.

With a price point below Rs 5,000 and a decent list of specs, the Micromax Bolt A51 should prove to be a good enough option for first time smartphone buyers and will compete against the likes of Lava Discover 132 and the Videocon V1548 among others.
