Indigenous brand Micromax has continued its push into the 4G segment with the launch of its new flagship smartphone, Canvas 5.
Priced at Rs 11,999, Canvas 5 will go on sale today across retail stores. At this price point, it is among the few smartphones with 3GB of system memory.
The latest Micromax smartphone has a 5.2-inch IPS display with Full HD (1080p) resolution with Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The display panel sports the 2.5D curved glass design that slopes at the edges, similar to what we have seen on iPhones over the last couple of years.
The all-new Micromax Canvas 5 runs the Android 5.1 operating system and packs a 1.3GHz octa-core Mediatek MT6735 processor, a rival to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 615 chipset. Under the hood are 3GB of RAM and 16GB of storage; users can expand storage via microSD cards.
