Micromax today introduced ‘Lite’ variant of last year’s Canvas 5, dubbed as Canvas 5 Lite Special Edition. The ‘Special’ in this smartphone is its Wood finish rear panel which comes in two color options.
While the Canvas 5 Lite Special Edition has already been listed on company’s website, we haven’t received any official information about its pricing and availability details yet.
The Canvas 5 Lite features a 5 inch IPS display with HD (720 x 1280 pixels) resolution and is handled by a 1 GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6735P processor assisted by 3GB of RAM. It employs 16gigs of internal memory and an expansion slot that accepts microSD card.
There is an 8MP resolution auto focus rear camera with LED flash and a 5 MP front camera onboard. The Canvas 5 Lite houses a humble 2000mAh battery which is rated to deliver up to 4 hours and 30 minutes of talk time and up to 150 hours of standby time.
The handset is still running Andriod Lollipop based ROM, and that certainly feels lackluster at this point of time. Other connectivity options include 4G LTE, 3G GPS/ A-GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Micro-USB.
Micromax is still a major player in offline markets, but the company has more or less failed to transfer the same vigor in its online offerings. The Canvas 5 Lite relies heavily on its aesthetic appeal, and that might even work.
