Many indigenous handset makers have come out with feature-packed
smartphones to challenge the domination of global brands, but not many
have done so as effectively as Micromax.
The company has raised the
bar for the competition with its Canvas series, and now in yet another
sign of extending its dominance in the mid-range smartphone segment, the
company is reportedly gearing up to launching two devices, the A240 and
Canvas Doodle 2.
In a report, Android OS blog claims that
Micromax is planning to showcase its next flagship smartphone very soon.
It will reportedly be dubbed as A240 and sport a 5.7-inch 720p HD
display. There is no exact launch date mentioned but the report claims
that the announcement may come next week.
The report further notes
some of the specifications of the alleged A240 smartphone may include a
1.2GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6589 processor paired with 1GB of RAM and
16GB internal storage. The device is expected to sport a 12-megapixel
rear camera with LED flash. Other specifications mentioned are a
5-megapixel front-facing camera, dual-SIM support. The device is likely
to be backed by a 2,600mAh battery and run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
report also suggests that the in terms of software customisations, the
rumoured A240 may incorporate all tweaks seen in the company's current
flagship smartphone, the Micromax Canvas 4. This means the
Micromax A240 will include support for vertical panorama in camera app
and come with features like Flip to mute and Smart Pause.
the Micromax A240 will compete with phablets featuring large displays
like the Sony Xperia Z Ultra that sports a large
6.4-inch display and Samsung Galaxy 5.8
Galaxy Mega 6.3 that come with 5.8-inch and 6.3-inch displays respectively.
MMX Newscaster, a source of leaks
related to Micromax mobiles, has posted a series of images of the
alleged Micromax Canvas Doodle 2 on its Twitter account.
Newscaster claims that the Micromax Canvas Doodle 2 is the next on
Micromax launch list. The original Micromax Canvas Doodle featured a 5.3-inch display
so we can expect its successor to sport similar specifications.
