Micromax has officially presented the Canvas 5 Lite that comes with a leather finish back cover and will retail exclusively on Snapdeal for 6,499 INR.
The hardware specifications and other features remain mediocre at best. The Canvas 5 Lite offers a 5-inch HD display and is powered by 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6735P processor paired with 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage. Unfortunately, you can’t expand the storage. The handset doesn’t include MicroSD card support.
For photography, there is an 8MP camera on the rear and a 5MP selfie shooter on the front. The handset is still running Android 5.1 Lollipop OS, which is a bit dated as of today.
Other important features include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, FM radio, 4G and a 2000mAh battery. The handset will compete with phones like Coolpad Mega, Panasonic P77 and Xiaomi Redmi 3s in India.
Commenting on the launch, Mr. Shubhajit Sen, Chief Marketing Officer, Micromax Informatics said, “Micromax has been relentless in its pursuit of launching Smartphones that combine superior performance with contemporary styling at accessible prices. The launch of the Canvas 5 lite is the latest milestone in our resolve to offer the best products at competitive price points.”
“The rapid Smartphone category evolution is constantly reshaping the preference of young urban consumers. They now expect top-of-line performance, 4G connectivity along with premium, modern styling in the budget Smartphone segment. We developed Canvas 5 Lite as a no compromise, All-in-one phone – for the festive season.”
