Micromax has launched a new budget phone in Nepal whose primary focus is in the design aspect. The new Canvas 1 comes with a glossy plastic body and a protruding camera bump that resembles the iPhone 7 Plus. With the price tag of Rs.12,485, the phone carries specifications like any other phone in this price range.
Micromax Canvas 1 comes with a 5-inch HD display with 294ppi and doesn’t have any protection. The phone being launched in July still runs on Android 7.0 Nougat and it won’t be getting any updates. Powering the device is the MediaTek MT6737 quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz. It comes with 2GB of RAM. For storage, the phone offers 16GB internal storage which can be expanded up to 64GB with its dedicated Micro SD card slot.
Although the camera bump of Canvas 1 resembles iPhone 7 Plus, it doesn’t come with dual camera setup. The phone carries an 8MP rear shooter with f/2.2 aperture and dual tone LED flash. It can shoot full HD videos. Up front, the phone offers a 5MP camera with LED flash which is a good addition to a budget phone.
Canvas 1 doesn’t offer gyro sensor for those who might want to use it for VR experience. It does offer proximity and accelerometer. Connectivity wise, it has dual SIM with 4G, WiFi, and Bluetooth 4.0. Backing up the device is a 2500mAh battery.
