Micromax Mobiles has officially launched its much awaited Canvas 4 smartphone today. Already on pre-order at the company e-store, the smartphone has been priced at INR 17,999.
As we had already told in our exclusive report, Micromax Canvas 4 features a 5-inch 720p IPS display (touch works even with gloves), 1.2GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6589 processor and 1GB of RAM. The phone runs on Android 4.2 and packs a 13-megapixel rear camera with image stablisation, 5-megapixel front camera and 2,000 mAh battery.
In addition, the phone comes with dual-SIM (dual-standby) support, microSD card slot, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS.

In terms of the software customisations, the Canvas 4 smartphone comes with new unlock methods – blow a kiss to your phone (really Micromax!) or shake the phone.
