Micromax announces its first Android One Smartphone, The Canvas A1
New Delhi: After Karbonn launched it smartphone on Snapdeal, it is now time for Micromax to do the same. Post the Google announcement, the company has announced its first Android One smartphone called the Canvas A1 that will go on sale for a price tag of Rs 6499.
Indeed there is not much here under the hood as the handset like the Karbonn Sparkle V. This is because similar to the Karbonn smartphone, Micromax too had to design its handset under Google’s strict handset reference design guidelines. So clearly there are no differences here when it comes to the hardware; but just the external design that is looks different.
We get a 4.5 inch (854 x 480 pixel) IPS touch screen display
Inside, we have a 1.3 GHz quad-core (MediaTek) processor coupled with a Mali-400 GPU
Memory comes in the form of 1 GB of RAM and 4 GB of ROM that can be expanded up to 32 GB
The camera department consists of a 5 MP primary sensor with LED flash on the back and a 2 MP sensor up front
The smartphone comes with the usual radios like Wi-FI and Bluetooth and includes dual SIM slots as well
The Canvas A1 runs Android KitKat 4.4 and is powered by a 1700 mAh battery
