Yesterday, we told you that Micromax will be launching a new flagship and here it is– Micromax Canvas Sliver 5 launched in New Delhi couple of hours ago. On the launch event, the company stipulates the Canvas Sliver 5 as the thinnest phone ever with a 5.1 mm thickness end to end, with no protruding camera lens like on Oppo R5 (4.9 mm thickness) and Vivo X5 Max( 4.8 mm thickness). The phone weighs just 97 gm, which could also be the thinnest phone ever.
Priced at INR 18,000 in India, the phone comes with 4.8-inch (1280 x 720 pixels) AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection, Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC, 2GB RAM, 16GB inbuilt storage which unfortunately cannot be expanded via microSD card slot.
The Canvas Sliver 5 sports an 8-megapixel autofocus rear camera with Sony IMX219 CMOS sensor and LED flash. It also has a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Because of its thin body, the Canvas Sliver 5 only boasts a 2000mAh battery. The phone runs Android 5.0.2 Lollipop and supports single 4G LTE nano SIM card.
