Micromax has been quite slow in launching new smartphones, especially after it started losing market share to other brands. Today, it launched a new smartphone in the budget price range named as the Micromax Canvas 2 Plus. It is an upgrade to the popular Canvas 2 that was launched last year. Let’s see what this upgrade has in store for us.
The Micromax Canvas 2 Plus fits a 5.7-inch display with an HD resolution. Since it bears a bezel-less form factor, the aspect ratio of the phone is 18:9, Micromax calls it ‘Infinity Screen’. The device is available in Matte Black and Jet Black colour.
There’s a 13-megapixel camera on the rear along with an LED flash. On the front, you get an 8-megapixel snapper for clicking selfies and making video calls. There’s a selfie flash provided as well to click low-light selfies. Alternatively, you can also use the front camera to unlock your phone.
In terms of performance, the phone comes with a 1.3GHz quad-core processor coupled with 3GB of RAM. Micromax hasn’t mentioned the name of the chipset that powers the phone. There is 32GB of internal storage and it is expandable with a microSD card. It still runs Android Nougat though, an almost 2 year old OS. We can expect an upgrade in the coming months.
The Canvas 2 Plus runs on a 4000mAh battery unit which should definitely last a whole day with full charge. The phone is equipped with all the basic array of connectivity options. It is priced at Rs. 8,999 and will be available in offline stores. Micromax might also sell it online after a few months.
