Micromax, the homegrown smartphone brand has officially announced the entry-level Micromax Selfie 2 smartphone for Rs. 9,999 in India. The smartphone has mediocre specifications, but Micromax is asking the price of Rs. 9,999, same as the best selling Redmi Note 4 smartphone.

The highlight of the Micromax Selfie 2 is the selfie camera, latest Android software, and rear mounted fingerprint scanner. Besides these, the phone doesn’t inspire confidence in terms of specifications, and it doesn’t stand against the competition. The Micromax Selfie 2 is steeply priced because it will be available only in offline stores from August 1.

Micromax is offering 100-day replacement guarantee with the Selfie 2 smartphone, meaning users can either get a new Selfie 2 or similarly priced phone if they encounter any issue with the phone. Further, there’s the regular one-year standard manufacturer warranty.

Diving into the specifications of the phone, the Micromax Selfie 2 comes with a 5.2-inch HD display with a resolution of 720×1280 pixels. The display has a 2.5D curved glass on top. The Selfie 2 has a MediaTek MT6737 SoC with a 1.3GHz quad-core CPU, paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The memory is expandable up to 64GB via a microSD card.

Micromax has added an 8MP front-facing camera to the phone, which is a Sony IM135 sensor. The camera app also offers real-time bokeh effect. At the back of the phone, there’s a 13MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture and autofocus support. Both the front and rear cameras have support for an LED flashlight.

As said earlier, the smartphone runs the latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS, and it’s a dual SIM smartphone. The phone comes with connectivity options such as 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, and GPS. There’s a 3000mAh battery backing the phone, which is rated to deliver 250 hours of standby time and 11 hours of talk time.
