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.
