After Micromax launched its new smartphone Canvas 4 way back in June, the phone has finally hit the Indian market.
Retailing at Rs 17,999, the phone comes with a 5.0-inch HD (720×1280) display. It is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor alongside 1GB RAM and 16GB internal storage which can be expanded to 32GB.
It comes with a 13 megapixel primary camera and a 5 megapixel front camera. The smartphone has a few gesture functions like the flip-to-mute a call which means when the phone rings users can flip the phone to silence the ringtone.
You can also automatically make calls by holding the phone to ear. While on a call, the Canvas 4 turns loudspeaker on when the smartphone is flipped.
Another addition to the gesture technology is ‘blow-to-unlock’. Users can unlock the Canvas 4’s screen by blowing air on the screen.
The phone runs Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth and Micro-USB. Canvas 4 is powered by a 2,000mAH battery.
The phone also offers some smart features including a pop-up play like video player allowing users to simultaneously view videos while doing other tasks, automatic pausing of videos when one looks away among many others.
Micromax Canvas 4 will come with a new cover worth Rs.3,000, that will allow the use of the phone even when the screen is covered.
