Smartphone Micromax Canvas 2 runs on Android 7

Micromax is introducing the new Canvas 2 (2017) to capture its space in the Indian smartphone market. As per the company it comes with unbreakable screen as its screen is covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. However, the company lost all its charm after Xiaomi and other Chinese brands invaded the country's smartphone market.

The Airtel users would get quite lucky after purchasing the Micromax Canvas 2 (2017) as the device will provide unlimited talk time for those users.

Coming to the specifications, the Canvas 2017 has a 5-inch full HD 2.5D curved display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on the top. The smartphone comes with 3GB RAM and an expandable memory of 16GB internals tare which is expandable up to 64GB. For taking selfies, the Micromax smartphone has been equipped with a 5MP resolution shooter on the front. Connectivity features include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and microUSB.

The physical home button placed beneath the display comes integrated with a fingerprint sensor.

The Canvas 2 runs the Android Nougat, which is a first for Micromax. It comes in Black colour.

The phone has been launched under collaboration with Airtel, which will offer 1GB of 4G data every day and thereafter the speed will get reduced. Having said that, we would like to know what do you think about this? Over the last few months, as the Indian handset and telecom industry has undergone dynamic shift, the focus of consumers is shifting from just the hardware, to overall connected experience. In the list of the features of Micromax Canvas 2 also includes two slots for SIM-cards, two microSD slot, modules Bluetooth and WI-FI and also Global Positioning System receiver for navigation and a hardware Home button in the vein of early Samsung smartphones. This is first phone in India with Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

John Bayne, Vice President and General Manager, Corning Gorilla Glass, added, "We are pleased to work with Micromax to bring the superior drop performance of Corning Gorilla® Glass 5 to their mid-segment customers". An interesting feature the phone has, is the ability to pull up a control pad where users can access the most commonly used apps.

It's notable that Canvas 2 (2017) edition is the first one to come with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 in the its price range.
