Micromax Canvas 5 Launched in India Today
Micromax launched the much awaited Canvas 5 smartphone in India today. The newest flagship from Micromax promises improvements on the Canvas 4 that saw some negativity regarding build quality and camera performance.
While some of the specs are similar to its predecessor, the Canvas 5 has improved where it needed to. The Canvas 5 has a powerful processor and larger battery. The display of the phone has improved quite a lot and so has the overall design that feels good in your hand. The handset has a removable plastic back panel that has a leather feel to it. The front glass joins the curved edge that has a matt finish which gives the phone a sleek look; and at 8.5mm thickness, the device is quite slim.
The Canvas 5 does offer is a full-HD display that fans were expecting for a long time. The handset has also bumped up the RAM to 3GB, which is great for a phone under Rs. 12,000. The camera remains the same as the Canvas 4 and a hands on will tell us whether the low-light images come out better with the Canvas 5.
The flagship sports a 5.2-inch FHD screen with 480ppi. It is powered by a 1.3GHz octa core MediaTek MT6753 ARM Cortex-A53 chipset. It also features 3GB RAM and 11GB internal storage expandable up to 128 GB via MicroSD card slot.
