Just a few days after launching Bolt A61, Micromax has quietly launched a new version of its Android powered Canvas series, the Micromax Canvas 2.2 A114. Lets take a dig at whats cooking in it.
Canvas 2.2 is sized at 73 x 145 x 9.7 mm and weighs just 147 grams. This small box is packed with sensors like Gyro sensor, light sensor and proximity sensor.
Also, note that this device has a micro-SIM card instead of full sized SIM tray just like iPhone 5 has.
Processor and RAM
Micromax Canvas 2.2 is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek processor (MT6582M) and also features 1GB RAM. It does have four cores just like LG G Flex, still not a very powerful chip.
This devices features a 5 inch qHD IPS display. It comes with a 540 x 960 pixels which of course is not a retina display. Also, the touch of the multi-touch display is not as smooth as you will find in iPhones or Samsung Galaxy S4.
Canvas 2.2 has excelled in camera technology, this time, having 8 mega pixel auto focus camera at its rear end with 2 mega pixel front facing camera. It also has an LED flash light at its back. It has the capability of full HD recording through its rear camera.
Micromax Canvas 2.2 comes with a 4 GB internal storage which can hold most of the apps you will need on the smartphone. But if that cannot hold your memory needs, it is expandable up to 32 GB with a microSD memory chip.
With not much improvement to the battery life like its previous generation Canvas device, The Micromax Canvas 2.2 A114 comes with a 2000 mAh battery which as per an online e-commerce listing, claims up to 7 hours of battery life and up to 290 hours of Stand by time.
If you think 6-7 hours of battery is not enough for you, we have reviewed a portable battery backup, Fuel+ which will fulfil your battery needs.
Like most of the upcoming smartphones, Canvas 2.2 also supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPRS, EDGE, GPS/ AGPS and 3G. It also supports Dual Sim (GSM + GSM).
The Micromax Canvas 2.2 comes pre-installed with Android 4.2 Jelly bean version. However, we are not yet aware if it will support the latest version of Android, the 4.4 KitKat version.
Canvas 2.2 Price in India
The smartphone is listed on e-commerce retailer Flipkart, at a price point of Rs 12,799. Of course add a couple hundreds more if you want an extended memory support.
