Another Micromax smartphone is on its way. A tweet from @MMXNewscaster reveals there's a new Micromax A200 smartphone sporting a 4.7-inch HD display, in the works. A glance at the specs revealed by the tweeter, and the A200 looks to be a mid-range device, and could be priced somewhere between Rs 10,000 and Rs 15,000.
While there's no confirmation from Micromax itself about the phone, MMXNewcaster has revealed some specs. Do note that this is strictly a rumour at the moment. The A200 will be powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM. The chipset will most likely be MediaTek's. The smartphone includes 4GB onboard storage. Though the tweet doesn’t mention expandable memory, we presume that the smartphone will have a microSD card slot. On the camera front, the smartphone comes equipped with an 8-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front-facing cameras.

According to the tweet, the A200 will be 7.9 mm thin and comes with Gorilla Glass 2 protection. It will be fuelled by an 1800 mAh Li-Po battery. There is no word on the Android version to run on A200, but presumably it could be Android 4.2 or 4.3 Jelly Bean. Based on the specs, we can say that the A200 will sit below the aging Canvas 4 in Micromax's portfolio and will likely be Micromax's contender to take on the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2.
Earlier this month, the company has launched two sub-Rs 10,000 smartphones – Canvas A77 Juice and Bolt A61. The 5-inch Canvas A77 Juice features a 3000 mAh battery and is priced at Rs 7,999. The Bolt A61 is an even cheaper, entry-level smartphone priced at Rs 4,999. It's a dual-SIM phone (GSM+GSM) with dual standby support, 4-inch display and 1GHz Spreadtrum SC7710 processor coupled with mere 256MB RAM.
