Micromax on Monday expanded its 4G tablet portfolio with the launch of the Canvas Tab P701. Priced at Rs. 7,250, the new Micromax Canvas Tab P701 tablet will be exclusively available via Flipkart. The domestic manufacturer in March had recently launched the Canvas Tab P702 featuring 4G connectivity priced at Rs. 7,999.
Similar to Canvas Tab P702, the dual-SIM supporting Micromax Canvas Tab P701 runs Android 5.1 Lollipop out-of-the-box and features a 7-inch (1024x600 pixels) IPS display. It is powered by a quad-core MediaTek processor, clocked at 1GHz, clubbed with 1GB of RAM.
The tablet packs 8GB of inbuilt storage, which can be expanded via a microSD card (up to 32GB). In the camera department, the Canvas Tab P701 sports a 5-megapixel autofocus rear camera with LED flash along with a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.
On the connectivity front, the Canvas Tab P701 supports 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Micro-USB connectivity. The Flipkart listing confirms that the tablet can support 4G on one SIM while another slot can support 3G at one time. The online listing also reveals that the tablet supports voice calling.
Available on Flipkart in Blue and Grey, the tablet packs a 3500mAh battery rated to deliver up to 15 hours of talk time and up to 4.5 hours of browsing time. Much like the Canvas Tab P701, the new Canvas Tab P702 also comes preloaded with 7 Kindle e-books worth Rs. 1,500 for free.
Commenting on the launch, Shubhajit Sen, Chief Marketing Officer, Micromax Informatics said, "At Micromax, we strive to design devices that address consumers' needs in a specific category. In the tablet segment, we realise that consumers today most frequently use their tablets for watching videos of all sorts. The Canvas Tab P701 offers a fantastic entertainment experience to users on the move giving them flexibility to easily access content anytime and anywhere, without being bound at their homes. Our range has been very well received by the consumers and as the industry leaders we continue to grow the category as also the use case for the large scale adoption of the tablet form factor and hence the larger display size".
