Remember the Micromax Canvas 2 which was launched back in 2012? Well, Micromax is bringing back its most successful smartphone so far.

Also, it will be an offline-exclusive model.

Micromax is touting the device’s display as unbreakable since the 5-inch HD screen comes with the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection on top. Incidentally, it is the cheapest smartphone in the country to feature Gorilla Glass 5. Also, Micromax is offering a one-year free screen replacement for the folks who break their phone’s display.

Rest of the specifications of the Canvas 2 (2017) are mediocre. The device is powered by an octa-core MediaTek MT6737 chipset, clubbed with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Also, the storage is expandable up to 128GB with the help of microSD card.

At the rear side, there’s a 13MP snapper with PDAF and LED flash along with a 5MP front-facing snapper. The device has a fingerprint sensor located below the display. Micromax claims that the fingerprint scanner can unlock the device in just 0.2 seconds.

Another highlight feature in the 2017 edition of Canvas 2 is it comes laden with Android 7.0 Nougat with Micromax’s customisations. Furthermore, the phone is armed with a 3050mAh battery and can offer talk time of up to 11 hours.

All the necessary connectivity options such as the 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS are present in the phone. Micromax has added all the basic sensors such as the ambient light sensor, proximity sensor in the device.

The homegrown company also partnered with Bharti Airtel and is providing 1GB data and 600 minutes of off-net calling for one year to users who purchase the device. Micromax said that the company is looking to sell at least one million units of Canvas 2 in the next six to eight months. This device from Micromax will hurt the Chinese players such as Oppo and Vivo who have been playing aggressively in the offline market.

Owner of Micromax seems to have an inferiority complex about being an Indian and probably has ordered the ad agency: “Only White people in our ads (Black people okay too), but not a single Indian should be seen!” Lol, great attitude. A lot of Indians are plagued by this mindset. On the other hand, foreign companies are using Indian actors in their adverts and no one is thinking that it’s a bad idea.
