Micromax has launched a new smartphone, dubbed the Micromax Canvas Infinity Pro. As the name itself suggests, the Canvas Infinity Pro is a bigger variant of the of the Micromax Canvas Infinity which was launched a couple of months ago. The Canvas Infinity Pro is priced at Rs 13,999, and the highlight features of the smartphone include the 5.7-inch 18:9 display and dual selfie cameras.
The Canvas Infinity Pro smartphone will also be exclusive to Flipkart, like its sibling Canvas Infinity. This smartphone features the same 5.7-inch HD+ display with a resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels and a 2.5D curved glass on top. The 18:9 aspect ratio display matches the current trend in the smartphone industry.
Unlike its younger sibling, the Canvas Infinity Pro is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC, clubbed with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The onboard storage in the smartphone is expandable up to 128GB with a microSD card. Graphics in the smartphone are taken care by Adreno 505 GPU. This dual-SIM smartphone comes laden with Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box, and Micromax did not reveal any plans for Android Oreo upgrade.
Like I said earlier, one of the highlights of the Micromax Canvas Infinity Pro is the dual selfie cameras. Micromax has added a primary 20MP shooter, which is also accompanied by another 8MP shooter. The phone also has a soft LED flash to save your shots during low-light conditions. The secondary 8MP sensor is used to capture depth information in the images.
At the back of the phone, we get a 16MP camera with LED flash and 1080p video recording support. Below the rear camera, there’s a fingerprint scanner, which is rated to unlock the device in 0.2 seconds.
Connectivity options in the smartphone include 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, and USB OTG. This entire package is backed by a 3000mAh battery.
For the asking price of Rs 13,999, the specifications of the Micromax Canvas Infinity Pro are underwhelming. It doesn’t come with any standout feature, apart from the dual selfie cameras. Being an Indian company, Micromax should look after competing with brands such as Xiaomi, Honor, Coolpad, and Motorola, rather than launching phones in its own world.
