India’s Micromax are famous for their affordable range of Android smartphones. The fast rising company also announced expansion into the Russian market recently, showing signs of evolving into a what we can call a ‘mature’ company.
With the success, Micromax can now afford to experiment on realms new. The company is currently reported to be working on a smartphone called Micromax Splash or Canvas Splash, which allegedly comes with waterproof and dustproof IP67-certified coating. While there’s nothing new in this, it will definitely turn out to be a step ahead for a manufacturer like Micromax.

Gizchina News of the week
The report comes from none other than MMXNewscaster, a leaks source specializing in Micromax news. Given their track record, we are quite certain that the Canvas Splash (or whatever name it is given) will launch in the coming weeks.
Unfortunately we have no word on specifications yet, save for the rear camera details. The leaked render shows a 5 mega-pixel rear shooter paired with an LED flash on the rear panel, that also reads ‘IP67 Certified’ at the bottom. MMXNewscaster mentioned in the tweet that the phone can hold up to 30min when submerged in water 1m deep.[Source]
