Micromax and several other companies are announcing phones left, right and center. But, in the mix has come something that has the mega potential for our marketplace. Micromax has collaborated with JBL and launched the new Canvas Music A88 smartphone. The device runs on a Mediatek Chipset and comes bundled with JBL headphones, the kind that retail upwards of Rs. 2500 separately. If you consider the price of the headphones into account the  cost of the phone itself would be around Rs. 6000, where as with the bundle its available for Rs. 8500, which according to us is an attractive package.

The Micromax Canvas Music A88 is powered by a Mediatek Dual Core MT65771 Ghz chipset, a PowerVR SGX 531 GPU does the work for the graphics and the Music has 512 MB RAM. For storage the Canvas Music A88 has 4 GB of total ROM out of which 1.93 GB is available to the end user.

Canvas Music A88 Initial Impressions

The Canvas Music seems snappy as far as the OS and UI are concerned, usual changes between panels and applications are swift as well. The browser seems quite capable of its potential and so does video playback, along with good sound from the speaker.

The Headphones are the real winner here, with excellent audio, great low levels and crystal clear MIDs. Micromax is counting on their new Music streaming service to do wonders for the handset, which allows users to download and listen to the latest music, practically free of cost. Rivaling many a music streaming services from other companies, the Micromax version remains free.

    I Just have the Suggestion to Micromax or You guys can? pass on this that,It would be great If Micromax Increases its RAM from “512mb” to atleast “1gb” in there upcoming mobiles.As of my information the specs which they are putting in there devices are great but one thing which they are lacking is RAM if they increase it to 1gb then there wouldn’t be any lag or snappy interface.But sorry not to forget “IGyaan” hats off to you guys the best Gadget website and channel on youtube throughout India.
