Micromax has officially launched the Unite 3 in India. The smartphone is priced at Rs 6,999 and is available on leading ecommerce websites apart from the company website. The big USP of the Unite 3 is its unique keyboard that will help users translate and transliterate text in Indian languages easily.

You can translate and transliterate text in 10 languages namely Hindi, Gujarati, Punjabi, Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Oriya, Bengali and Marathi. The keyboard uses the popular Swipe technology  to let users translate a message from English to the language of choice and vice versa with a simple swipe.

As far as the specifications are concerned, the Unite 3 flaunts a 4.7-inch (480×800 pixels) WVGA IPS display. It is powered by a 1.3GHz MediaTek (MTK6582M) quad-core processor paired with a 1GB RAM. It offers 8GB of internal storage further expandable up to 32GB via a microSD.

Additionally, the Micromax Unite 3 sports an 8-megapixel autofocus rear camera with LED flash, and a 2-megapixel fixed-focus front camera. The smartphone packs a 2,000mAh battery, that the company claims delivers up to 8 hours of talk time and up to 220 hours of standby time. It runs on Android Lollipop out-of-the-box, and connectivity options include 3G support, dual-SIM, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Micromax is also offering Vodafone consumers 500 MB of free data per month for 2 months. The Unite 3 comes preloaded with apps such as Ask me, Chaatz, Clean master, Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Hotstar, Newshunt, Paytm, Quicker, Snapdeal, and SwiftKey.

Even though the biggest highlight is the ‘Swipe’ feature, at this price point, the Unite 3 may face some competition from the Yu Yuphoria and Xiaomi Redmi 2.
