Micromax at an event yesterday has launched 19 devices out of which 15 are smartphones. This is one of the biggest launches done in recent times and this coming from Micromax which had no major launches in the past few months. Possibly, desperate times call for desperate measures.
Coming to the phones that Micromax has launched, the Micromax Canvas 6 is the successor to the Micromax Canvas 5 and may be the flagship for this year. The phone has a 5.5-inch display with Full HD resolution (1920×1080 pixels) and Gorilla Glass 3 Protection. The phone is powered by a MediaTek Helio X10 Processor along with 3GB of RAM, which is an Octa Core processor also found in the Le 1S. The Canvas 6 has a metal unibody design and gets a fingerprint scanner at the back just below the camera making it the first Micromax phone with a fingerprint scanner.
It looks like Micromax took some inspiration from the Google Nexus 6P as the Camera visor looks similar to it. The Canvas 6 sports a 13-megapixel camera at the back with Phase Detection Auto Focus and has a 5-megapixel camera on the front. The phone runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop with Micromax UI on top of it. The Canvas 6 is a Dual SIM device and has a 3000mAh battery that seems sealed shut inside. Alongside the Canvas 6, Micromax launched the Canvas 6 Pro which has a few changes. The screen size remains the same at 5.5 inches with the same Full HD display. The Pro is powered by a different variant of the Mediatek Helio X10 processor and has 4GB of RAM.
The Canvas 6 Pro however, misses out on the Fingerprint scanner and the metal unibody. All other hardware for both the phones are the same, the 6 Pro is a Dual SIM phone as well with a 3000mAh battery. Micromax has also announced Gaana as their default music play on both their phones. Micromax has launched both the phones for a price of Rs. 13,999 with no concrete date of availability. You can prebook the Micromax Canvas 6 Pro from the Micromax website right now.
