After the phenomenal success Micromax has had in the Indian market with its Canvas smart phone, it has decided to launch the next version of the same phone. This new smart phone will be called the Canvas 2 and will offer a host of new features that make it very appealing to buy.

Micromax is launching the Canvas 2 with Android 7.0 Nougat as standard. The latest Android OS 7.0 is not yet available in most phones in the market making the Canvas 2 a superb deal. The smartphone comes equipped with a 1.3 Ghz quad-core processor which may seem a bit slow. However, the phone comes with 3GB of RAM which should provide more than enough operating speed. When it comes to storage, the phone offers 16 GB inbuilt which can further be extended to 64 GB.

Camera and Battery

Micromax has come up with an all new camera for this phone and it is stunning. The 16-MP rear camera with a flash offers unique modes including Bokeh, Panorama and HDR. All these modes offer great shots to an avid photography enthusiast. The front camera, however, is limited to a 5-MP but comes with a wide angle lens and a f/2.0 aperture.  When it comes to the battery pack, the phone offers a 3050 Mah battery which will just get you through the day.

Exciting offers

The Canvas 2 has been marketed with one main offer which is a year’s worth of 4G data absolutely free. For this, the phone manufacturer has teamed up with Airtel to provide services to its customers. The offer will include an Airtel sim along with the phone and once activated, you will be able to use the sim for 4G and unlimited calls for one whole year. The 4G data has been restricted to 1GB per day, though. The phone also comes with a screen replacement warranty as mentioned earlier

Priced at Rs.11,999, this phone can be described as lackluster at best. Most phones in the market nowadays offer a lot more at the same price and some like the Coolpad Note even offer more at a lesser price. The phone is worth the money however in terms of the year’s worth of 4G data and unlimited calls you get with it.
