At the same time, Micromax Canvas 5 A350 is said to sport dual-SIM capabilities, along with the usual set of sensors (G-sensor, Accelerometer, light sensor, and proximity sensor).
The mobile phone measures 165 x 82.8 x 8mm and weighs 190 grams. It is expected to hit shelves in two color versions, namely White and Black.
