Micromax Canvas 1 With 2GB RAM and 8MP Primary Camera Launched in India at Rs. 6,999

India’s home-grown smartphone manufacturer, Micromax, has launched a new device in the country under its Canvas lineup, called the Micromax Canvas 1. The smartphone comes in two variants – Matte Black and Chrome Black colours – with a price tag of Rs. 6,999. Starting today, this budget smartphone will be available offline through various retail stores across the nation. The device comes with a 1-year warranty, plus the company is additionally offering a free-replacement warranty for any hardware failure within the first 100 days of purchase.


Specs-wise, the Micromax Canvas 1 sports a 5-inch IPS LCD display with an HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and a pixel density of 294ppi. The display comes with a 2.5D curved glass on top for screen protection. The Canvas 1 weighs in at 150 grams and is fairly light to hold.

Under the hood, the handset is powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT6737 SoC, clocked at 1.3GHz. Accompanying the processor, the phone packs in 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The device houses a dedicated microSD slot for further expanding the memory up to 64GB if needed.

On the software front, the Micromax Canvas 1 runs on Android Nougat 7.0 and is dual-SIM compatible. The handset comes with added features such as multi-window support, Quick Settings, and replies in the notification panel. Additionally, the Canvas 1 has an all new built-in control panel that lets you access Quick Toggles with a single swipe on display.


The phone’s connectivity options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS/A-GPS, 4G LTE support, and a micro-USB port for external connectivity. There is also a 3.5mm headphone jack on the top.

When it comes to the photography segment, the Micromax Canvas 1 bears an 8MP rear camera with f/2.2 aperture and autofocus on the rear panel, accompanied by a dual-tone LED flash. Up front, the device comes with a 5MP snapper with fixed focus and front flash for capturing selfies even in low-light conditions and for video calling as well. The Canvas 1 sips its juice from a 2,500mAh battery which is claimed to offer at least up to 7 hours of talk time and 180 hours of standby time on normal usage.

Going by its design and specs, the Micromax Canvas 1 seems like a decent buy at the reasonable cost of Rs. 6,999. Apart from the missing biometric sensor, the Canvas 1 offers a fairly good competition to the likes of Xiaomi and Motorola.

Someome help me to understand why most of users dislike MediaTek SoC..In terms of technology.


most of advanced users dislike mediatek because of no support for the developers to build source based custom roms.
which in turn means the updates provided by the company are the only option user is left with and we all know how good are Indian brands at providing updates, moreover the GPU in Mediatek SoC are weak in comaprison to Snapdragon


Thank you Raman.
