Micromax seems to be on a roll as two more Android-based budget phones surface online. After the Bolt A61, Micromax’s Bolt A28 and Bolt A59 are now listed at an online retailer. However, both smartphones come with the coming soon tag. However, users can key in their details, and will be notified once the phones are available. Having said that neither phone is impressive.
Though the online retailer hasn't mentioned the pricing, both devices appear to be entry-level. The dual-SIM Bolt A28 sports a 3.5-inch display and runs on a rather older Android 2.3 Gingerbread version. The budget smartphone comes powered by a 1GHz Cortex A5 processor and 1GB of RAM. The chipset isn’t specified yet, but we don't have too many hopes about its performance.

On the camera front, the A28 gets 0.3-megapixel rear and front-facing cameras.The onboard storage is limited to 512MB that could limit the number of apps you run. However, it is expandable up to 32GB. The smartphone is fuelled by a 1500mAh battery that promises up to 4 hours of talktime and up to 260 hours of standby time. Connectivity options include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPRS, EDGE, GPS/AGPS and micro-USB.
The Micromax Bolt A59 is also a dual-SIM phone but runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It is fitted with a 3.5-inch display with 320 x 480 pixels resolution. The smartphone is powered by a 1GHz Spreadtrum SC7710 processor along with a Mali 300 GPU and mere 256MB of RAM. The 4GB onboard storage is further expandable up to 16GB via microSD card slot.
On the camera front, one will find a 2-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a VGA front-facing camera. The device packs in a 1500mAh battery that claims to offer up to 160 hours, and up to 4 hours of talktime. The connectivity options include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Micro-USB, GPRS, EDGE and 3G. Despite the addition of Jelly Bean, this phone seems like another forgettable effort from Micromax.
