my|phone A919 Duo
Short, the my|phone A919 has been a rumor-magnet, and we had made a series of posts about it in the past. It has been a very interesting yet intriguing smartphone offering from my|phone that has been the content of such local tech-buzz lately.
In case you missed it:
my|phone A919 Review
The my|phone A919 sports a dual-core CPU clocked at 1GHz. This one uses the dual-core MT6577 CPU chipset from MediaTek and matched with a PowerVR SGX531 GPU.
I own a phone with MT6575 single core CPU that is clocked at 1GHz and it can perform really great on playing HD games or even high quality multimedia playbacks. What more when the my|phone A919 has the dual-core MT6577 CPU specification.
It runs on Android 4.0.4 ICS out of the box. Bearing the “DUO” in the name, it is a dual-SIM device and has 3G support.
It is slated with a 5-inch screen, having a FWVGA resolution at 480×854 pixels. The capacitive display is an IPS type. This config results a 195.93 PPI pixel density. I had personally seen the a919 in action, and I can say that the screen really looks nice and the touch response is great as expected.
It has a 512MB RAM and 4GB ROM configured parameters. The usable internal storage memory is 2.5GB. It is still expandable with an SD card of up to 32GB supported.
The my|phone A919 has a 8.0 megapixels camera that has AF and Dual LED flash. The front-facing camera is a VGA snapper. I assure you that this will work on native 3G video calls or even at Skype.
The battery is a Lithium Polymer rated at 2000 mAh capacity. We can expect more usage time with that capacity.
Other stuff, just the same thing we can see from Android smartphones. Ooops, before I forgot, I was told that it has TV-out support. Knowing this, you can hook it up with your bigger display and play HD games with it like a boss.

Even though that the my|phone seems a prefect mirror of the Indian Micromax A110 Superfone Canvass 2, my|phone doesnt says a yes for a rebranding confirmation. They just said that they have the same OEM manufacturer. Setting that aside, what we can see with the Micromax A110, such as rooting tricks, update tweaks and other cool stuff might be highly applicable with this myPhone A919 Duo.
