Micromax, India's leading homegrown mobile handset maker unveils yet another smartphone in its low end budget category Micromax Entice A105 powered with KitKat 4.4.2 OS, 1.2GHz Quadcore Broadcom Processor.

Entice A105 has officially listed on the Micromax's website but with no pricing and stock details.

We could expect the pricing range between Rs.6000 - 8000.


OS                 Android KitKat 4.4.2
Screen          12.7 cm (5)WVGAscreen with a resolution of 480*800pixels,
Chipset    .    BCM23550, 1.2GHz Quadcore Processor

Storage         4 Gb ROM, 512 MB Ram,
                      600MB for applications and 1.5 GB for mass storage

If we look into the major changes done by Micromax is, the previously released smartphones Engage, Unite etc including Entice are now using Qualcomm and Broadcom processors instead of MTK processor by Mediatek, which is a Taiwanese fabless semi-conductor company. As Micromax has troubled a lot with its Mediatek processors mainly with lagging problems and heat issue etc.

Anyway, we are the consumers, we could expect a lot from Micromax, which is getting the lead in all aspects of Mobile Technology. They are on the way to capture the mobile technology world @ PRAMOD NAIR TECHNOLOGY BLOG
