Indian smartphone vendor Micromax is getting ready to launch a new budget smartphone in the country, which will take on the Xiaomi Redmi 2 and Moto E (2nd Gen).
The company recently started teasing the phone on social media and revealed that it will be dubbed as Canvas Spark. Micromax has also stated that the phone will be exclusive to e-retailer Snapdeal.com.
Although the company has not shared any other details, a report from TOI Tech indicates that the Canvas Spark will retail under INR 6,000 and will go on sale in the last week of April using flash sale model. The publication has also written that the phone will be powered by a quad-core processor.
We were able to independently confirm that Canvas Spark is indeed powered by a quad-core CPU and it is MediaTek’s MT6582. The same processor has been used in Android One phones and dozen of other Android phones selling in the country right now.
Among other specifications, we were told that the Canvas Spark will sport a 4.7-inch screen and run on Android 5.0. The phone will also feature dual-SIM support and microSD card slot.
We are expecting an official announcement soon, probably next week.
