Micromax starts Canvas 4 pre-booking at ₹5,000
Micromax has started accepting preorders for its next flagship device Canvas 4 through its official website and is charging ₹5,000 per booking.
The amount is just an initial amount for the pre-booking and consumers will have to pay the rest after the price of the phone is revealed on July 8, 2013. Once customers pre-book the device they will receive account credentials through which they can pay the remaining amount within 7 days i.e. July 15, after the final price has been announced. Micromax has said that if the remaining amount is not paid within the stipulated time, the order will be automatically cancelled while the pre-booking amount will be refunded back to the customers.
Micromax hasn’t let out any other details apart from the pre-booking page. As we reported earlier Canvas 4 will be powered by a Mediatek quad-core processor which may be clocked at 1.2 or 1.4 or 1.7 GHz. The smartphone may also boast of 1GB of RAM but, there are all the chances that it may even have 2GB of RAM. Android Jelly Bean is the likely candidate for the OS and we have out bets placed on that.
The rear camera is a 13-megapixel autofocus one with LED flash and we believe that Micromax may launch the device in two storage options – 8GB and 16GB with an option for expandable storage as well which could bump up the storage by an additional 32GB.
There were reports earlier that the phone will be priced at somewhere around ₹18,000 mark but, we believe that is way too high for a local vendor as per Indian standards. We place our bets in between ₹16,000 and ₹18,000. You can pre-book your Canvas 4 here.
