Micromax A51 Bolt - Full features, specs, price and availability in India

Micromax has released the A51 Bolt Android smartphone this month which was previously listed in the upcoming smartphones from Micromax in April 2013. In this article, I am going to discuss the features, specs, price and availability of Micromax A51 Bolt in India.

Micromax has yet another time proved its worth by introducing the all new Micromax A51 Bolt. This smartphone has got its named enlisted in the top budget Android smartphones in India. It is really a pocket device offering a screen of 3.5 inches. The features of this smartphone are really up to the expectations of its fans at such a price which we are going to reveal below. So, let's have a look on the features and specifications of the all new Micromax A51 Bolt.

Features and specs of Micromax A51 Bolt

Knowing the features and specifications of a device before going for it helps us to judge it well, whether it is a worth buying device or not. So, here also in this case, we will go through the specs of the Micromax A51 Bolt to judge this smartphone well.

Display and dimensions

Micromax A51 Bolt comes with a 3.5 inch TFT capacitive touchscreen offering the display screen resolution of 320 x 480 pixels and 256 K color range. The touchscreen doesn't support the multi-touch feature. So, one cannot click on more than two points on the touchscreen. Thus, we can say that the screen resolution of this smartphone is really good for such size and hence offers clear and vivid visualizations.

Network and operating system

Micromax A51 Bolt supports both 2G as well as 3G network with a band width of GSM 900, GSM 1800 and HSDPA 2100, WCDMA respectively. So, it is the first 3G smartphone from Micromax at this price. This smartphone works on Android platform and the Android OS version is 2.3 Gingerbread which is upgradable to higher versions and hence offers a wide range of apps and games from the Google play store.

Processor and Chipset

Micromax A51 Bolt is powered with 832 MHz processor which really makes it a great processing unit for better processing. It comes with a Brcm_21552 chipset to give it a quality game support and the best possible graphics processing.


This smartphone comes with a primary camera of 2 MP with an image resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels. It has a digital zooming feature also. It offers HD video recording up to 720p. This smartphone also offers a VGA front camera offering a better video calling than any other smartphone of this range. So, we can say that the camera features are worth the expectations from such a low budget smartphone.

RAM, ROM and Storage

The RAM of Micromax A51 Bolt is 256 MB and it covers the ROM memory of 512 MB. So, internal storage memory of 512 MB is enough for some basic storage and for high end storage capacity, it supports 32 GB of external memory via a micro SD card. So, there are no issues regarding the storage capacity of this device but we can say that the RAM is a bit low in memory as with this RAM one cannot play high quality games and hence a negative point to its features.


Micromax A51 Bolt is powered by a 1500 mAh Li-ion battery providing it a battery backup of about 140 hours on standby mode and about 5 hours of talk time. Hence, we conclude that the battery backup is not up to the expectations of the customers. It should be at least 1 day of talk time and 500 hours on standby mode.

Price and availability of Micromax A51 Bolt in India
Micromax A51 Bolt is priced at RS 4,399 in India which is Rs 200 less than the original price as it was launched in India at a price of Rs 4,599 which had a drop down later on. You can buy the Micromax A51 Bolt online from almost every shopping website which is dealing with such devices like Flipkart, Snapdeal etc.


This was all about the Micromax A51 Bolt, its features, specifications, price and availability in India. I would like to say that this smartphone is really a worth buying device as it provide you with the full value of the money you are going to pay. But this smartphone is not for those who use such devices continuously without any rest as it doesn't provide us a good battery backup. So, now the choice is yours!
