Micromax Bharat 2 smartphone goes official; gets listed on company website

While the Micromax Bharat 2 was announced sometime back, albeit unofficially thanks to a retailer, it has gone official today on the Micromax website. The company has listed its entry-level device on its official website as a product listing.

This comes as news after the smartphone reportedly went on sale at offline retailers. The device was said to be priced at Rs 3,499, but the MRP price on the box revealed a slightly higher Rs 3,750 price tag.

Now that it is listed on the company website, we also get our first official glimpse of the entry-level smartphone that has been built for the masses.

For sure it's not a Freedom 251, the quality, at least from the images looks pretty good with a plastic back panel, glass on the front and a metal frame on the sides.

The website focuses on the device's highlights which include 4G VoLTE connection, Android Marshmallow (which has oddly been advertised as the latest Android OS) and the fact that it comes pre-installed with Google apps (really?).
