Arriving more than two years after the launch of its predecessor in 2013, the Canvas 5 is a definite upgrade. However, the specifications are not that ground-breaking by today's standards. The device is likely to appeal to media users more than power users, or those who wish for a superior smartphone camera at this budget level. It has a dual sim slot with 4G LTE support. It is powered by a 1.3GHz MT6753 octa-core processor with 3GB RAM and has 16GB storage space. It runs Android Lollipop OS, 3GB RAM and mediatek 64-bit chipset.
For the looks of the phone, the 4G LTE-enabled Micromax Canvas 5 sports a 5.2-inch display. Above the screen, you have a speaker grille along with the front-facing camera on one side and the front-facing flash on the other. The volume buttons and the power button sit on the right side of the handset, while the headphone jack and the micro-USB port are placed at the top and bottom respectively. The Canvas 5 has a removable textured plastic rear panel, which gives a good grip but doesn't feel premium in hand. It hides the two Micro-SIM slots and the MicroSD card slot. The 2900mAh battery however, stays in place and is non-removable.
As compared to the 5-inch HD (720x1280 pixels) resolution display of the Canvas 4, the Canvas 5 has a slightly larger 5.2-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) display with a 2.5D curve and Gorilla Glass 3 coating. The Micromax Canvas 5 features a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, which is commonly featured on smartphones nowadays. A feature called 'Zero Shutter Delay' can be used to lock focus on subjects and take photos without wasting much time.
Micromax India officially introduced its new flagship smartphone in the Canvas series, the Canvas 5 which is priced at ₹11,999. Its been a long time since they have launched the successor of Canvas 4 smartphone, and first impressions should be out from users in the coming days.
The company has this time priced its premium new smartphone lesser than its predecessor, the Canvas 4.
