Pashupati Tradelink, the authorised distributor of Micromax mobiles in Nepal, has officially unveiled their latest flagship, the Canvas 6. The phone is priced at Rs. 23,685 and sports a full metal body, fingerprint scanner, and 3GB of RAM. You can buy the device from different retail stores located all across the nation.
Specs wise, the Canvas 6 features a 5.5-inch FullHD display layered with corning gorilla glass 3 protection. It is powered by a capable Helio X10 system on a chip with eight Cortex A53 cores running at a maximum frequency of 2GHz. In terms of memory, the phone sports 3GB of RAM and 32GB onboard storage with microSD card slot that will expand your storage upto 64GB.
The Connectivity options include dual-SIM slots with 4G LTE support, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, and fingerprint scanner. It has 13MP rear camera with LED Flash, PDAF, f/2.0 aperture, and an 8MP front-facing camera. As far as design is concerned, the Canvas 6 has a full aluminium body with round edges, and the back is non-removable with 3000mAh battery inside. The battery supports fast charging technology and will take around 1.5hours to fully charge from 0 to 100 percent. It is currently running Android 5.1 Lollipop, but the company has promised Android Marshmallow 6.0 update sometime in the future.
Commenting on the new flagship, Sumit Sharma, Marketing manager of Pashupati Tradelink said,
“With Canvas 6 we believe in the evolving needs of new age mobile phone users, with a better hardware and software experience that offers more productivity on-the-go. The introduction of new Canvas 6 brings to life to the vision of Micromax 3. With Canvas 6 we are offering our consumers a premium device that sports fingerprint sensor for great security and personalisation, full metal body for great looks and great specification and functionality, to provide a sense of pride in ownership and an unmatched mobile experience.”
According to Indian Tech reviewer iGyaan, the Micromax Canvas 6 is not worthy of buying as the phone’s specs are good on papers but the performance isn’t. They have mentioned in their video that the design is not ergonomic, is on a heavier side at 173gms, software is not optimised, has a heating issue, and the camera performance is just as good as average.
iGyann has also recommended potential buyers to rather go for the Redmi Note 3 that has got better build quality, performance, and battery life. Having said that, the Redmi Note 3 that we recently reviewed and is currently available in Nepal only has 2GB of RAM and is priced at Rs. 25,000. We will provide you with the full review once we have the phone on our hands.
