Micromax usually indulges in a lot of build-up for its upcoming phones, especially those that are targeted at tier-I and tier-II city buyers in its home country of India.
However, today’s launch of the new Micromax Canvas 5 lacked the sheen. Regardless, it’s the phone we’re interested in, so let’s get at it.
The Micromax Canvas 5 comes with a 5.2-inch 1920 x 1080p display and a MediaTek MT6753 64-bit octa-core processor with 3GB RAM an 16GB on-board storage (microSD supported upto 64GB).
Besides that, the new Micromax flagship features a 13 mega-pixel rear and a 5 mega-pixel front-facing camera, complete with front flash. Besides the camera, the front also has a 2.5D curved Gorilla Glass 3 coating on top of the screen.
The Canvas 5 is priced at 11,999 INR ($183), which makes it an interesting prospect. It has a 2900mAh battery.
