Pashupati Tradeline Pvt. Ltd., the authorised distributors of Micromax mobiles in Nepal, has officially unveiled the lite version of Micromax Canvas 5. Called the Canvas 5 Lite, the phone offers 2GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage for an asking price of just Rs. 12,100.
The Canvas 5 Lite offers 5-inch HD IPS display with a resolution of 294ppi. It is powered by a 1Ghz 64bit Quadcore processor (MediaTek MT6735P) with 2GB DDR3 RAM. Storage wise, it has 16GB of onboard memory with microSD expansion slot upto 64GB. It currently runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop which is a letdown considering Google has already launched Android 7.0 Nougat last month.
The Canvas 5 Lite uses OmniVision OV8856 sensor that comes equipped with an 8MP rear camera with LED Flash. Up front, it has a 5MP front-facing camera. As far as connectivity is concerned, it supports dual SIM with 4G VOLTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS. Powering the phone is a 2000mAh battery. Since it is a lite version of Canvas 5, the phone sports similar look and feel with metal frame and faux leather back.
The Canvas 5 Lite goes head to head with similarly priced phones like Colors Elite E15 and Gionee P5W. However, the Canvas 5 Lite punches well above its weight when it comes to design, performance, and display.
