Last week, mobile phone maker Micromax kicked off the pre-booking period for a new smartphone in its lineup, namely the Canvas 4, but it did not provide specific info on what the device is set to provide users with, saving these details for the big launch announced for July 8.Before that, however, info on the hardware specifications that the new mobile phone will sport when made available has emerged online, so that those interested in the device could make a better idea of what to expect from it.
According to a recent article on AndroidOS, the Micromax Canvas 4 A210 will land on shelves with a large 5-inch touchscreen display, yet capable only of a 720p resolution, and not a full HD one, as previously rumored.
Furthermore, the new mobile phone will sport a 1.2GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6589 processor inside, which will be accompanied by 1GB of RAM.
The handset packs 16GB of internal memory, it seems, but users will be able to expand it courtesy of the microSD memory card slot included in the package.
On the back, the new device will feature a 13-megapixel photo snapper, most probably capable of recording videos in full HD resolution, complemented by a 5MP front camera for making video calls.
Powered by a 2000 mAh battery, the Micromax Canvas 4 will run under Google’s Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system.
Apparently, the phone’s body is made out of plastic, yet there’s an aluminum frame wrapped around it. Micromax Canvas 4 weighs 145 grams and is only 8.9mm thin.
Unfortunately, no specific info on the devices’s final pricing has been provided as of now, but it should cost anywhere around INR 16,000 ($270/€207)-INR 17,000 ($286/€220). For those out of the loop, we should note that Micromax asked an INR 5,000 ($84/€64) deposit from those interested in pre-ordering the mobile phone.
Given that the above details are not official, we’ll take them with a grain of salt for the time being. However, more on the smartphone should be unveiled in one week, so stay tuned for additional details on the matter.
