New Delhi: Homegrown handset maker Micromax has launched the latest Android KitKat 4.4.2 running Micromax Unite 2 in India for Rs 6,999. The phone is seen as a quick response to Motorola's latest Moto E smartphone, which has received phenomenal success in the budget smartphone market.
Micromax Unite 2 is available from Thursday and offer support for 20 regional languages (as well as English) with its Reverie Multilingual Pack.
The talking point of the device is that it supports Android Kitkat, which can be easily upgraded through FOTA, offering users features such as voice search, Google Drive, Hangouts for video calls, smart contact prioritisation etc., thus, promising faster multitasking.
The Unite 2 is a dual-SIM device, and features a 4.7-inch Bright Graph IPS display with a 480x800 pixel resolution.

Connectivity options include 3G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and GPS. The device gets its juice from a 2000mAh battery. The smartphone is available in Grey, Green, Red and White colour variants.
“India is a diverse country and language at times can act as a barrier for people to seamlessly communicate on their phones. Therefore, we firmly believe that support for local languages on phones will perhaps be the next big driver for day to day phone transactions, internet usage and online content consumption in India given that most of the population does not use English as their primary language,” said Shubhodip Pal, CMO of Micromax.
Some preloaded apps in Unite 2 include MAd, Getit, Games Club, Hike, M!Games, Kingsoft Office, M!Live, Opera Mini, Reverie Phonebook, Reverie Smartpad, Burn the Rope, Toystory Smash it, and Marble.
The phone is given an entirely different look and is also made available in 4 different colors- grey, white, red and green.
