Micromax joins the Infinity display bandwagon with the Micromax Canvas Infinity and brings the 18:9 display technology to sub Rs. 10,000 price point. The Canvas Infinity surely has entry-level specs, but it stands out with the insane display and a decent front-facing camera.
Speaking about the specifications of the smartphone, the Canvas Infinity has a 5.7-inch HD+ display, which carries a resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels and layered with 2.5D curved glass. The device is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 chipset, coupled with Adreno 308 GPU and 3GB of RAM.
Another best part about the phone is the 32GB internal storage, which is expandable up to 128GB with a dedicated microSD card slot. The smartphone comes laden with Android 7.1.2 Nougat out-of-the-box, which is a good thing to see. Micromax even promised Android 8.0 Oreo upgrade to the device.
This dual-SIM smartphone has connectivity options such as 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, and USB OTG. Unfortunately, this device has a micro USB port and not the USB Type-C port. Another minus for the device is the plastic construction. The back panel of the phone is removable, where you can insert the battery.
Optics wise, the Canvas Infinity comes with a 13MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, LED flash, 5P lens. The rear camera is capable of recording 1080p videos. The phone also has a 16MP front-facing camera with the same f/2.0 aperture, and it can also record 1080p videos.
There’s a fingerprint scanner placed at the back of the phone. Powering the device will be a 2900mAh battery unit, which will barely last for a complete day.
Coming to the pricing of the smartphone, Micromax has announced that the Canvas Infinity will be an Amazon India exclusive with the sale starting on September 1, 2017. Sadly, the smartphone comes in a single black colour option. The device competes with LG Q6 in the price point.
