Micromax claims that they have outdone Samsung in terms of their operations in India and now they present Canvas HD, a phone to rival every Samsung phablet. Or so they say.
Taking footage at a launch in Delhi, Micromax claimed that they’ve been ahead of Samsung in their supplies of smartphones to India. They claim that in the last three months their supplies have drastically increased; as of now they have imported close to 1.98 lakh phablets into India, starting from the month of October, whereas Samsung has imported around 1.89 lakh Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note IIs in the same period from October to December.
“We are excited with the success of Canvas 2, which has clearly established Micromax as number one player in the phablet category in India. We are looking forward to similar success with Canvas HD,” said Deepak Mehrotra, CEO of Micromax. Other players in the phablet market are said to be behind both the burgeoning innovators. I’m sure it must have taken all of you at least three weeks to get rid of the devilish laughter of Akshay Kumar after the series of advertisements he did for their smartphones. The new advertisement for the Canvas HD is without the laughter but you couldn’t have missed it.
While the Canvas HD is for those who find HTC and Samsung products exceeding their budgets, you’ll find the same clichéd set of words concluding every review; and, it goes something like this: “For the price at which this device is being offered, it packs in impressive hardware.” Somehow, the argument ends there for me but do take a look at the features because you might just find something that you were looking for or you might be severely disappointed if you are a tech fiend. However, before that, you might just want to know that Micromax has decided to sell the device for less than 15,000 rupees in the first week, after its introduction in India in the month of February.
Beside the fact that the device comes with Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), and is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, these are the key features of the phablet:
A 5 inch HD IPS touchscreen that offers 1280×720 pixels that is the standard resolution on most smartphones. It has an 8 megapixel camera with LED flash and 4x zoom capabilities; to store all your media files, the phone has an internal memory of 4GB that can be expanded to 32GB using a microSD card. The device has a 1GB RAM.
So if you aren’t hung up about HTC products or you aren’t an ardent Samsung fan, you must give the Canvas HD a serious look over.
