The Micromax Bolt D303, the latest member of the company’s budget smartphone series, has been launched in India at a price tag of Rs 3499. The device’s main selling point is its keyboard, which allows users to translate and transliterate text with a swipe.
The feature was first seen in the mid-range Unite 3. The brand’s decision to include it in the lower-end Micromax Bolt D303 seems like a good choice, and positions it as an accessible device that caters to speakers of over 10 regional languages.

It’s powered by a 1.3GHz dual-core processor and a 1300mAh battery, which is supposed to provide 4.5 hours of talk time and 245 hours of standby time.
