Our desi manufactuer, Micromax, has quietly launched the A74 Canvas Fun. This budget-centric smartphone is available through online sites for Rs 7,749.
The A74 Canvas Fun sports a 4.5-inch capacitive display. It comes with a 5 megapixel rear camera and a 0.3 megapixel front-facing camera. The entry-level device comes with a 1.3GHz dual-core processor with 512MB RAM. The dual SIM handset also features 4GB of internal memory, which can be expanded up to 32GB. It bundles up a 1,500 mAh battery. It is nice to know that the A74 Canvas will run on the latest flavour of Android – Jelly Bean 4.2.2.
Like most of the entry-level devices in this range, the device equips a 5MP rear camera and a VGA front-facing one. On the connectivity front, one will find support for 3G, Wi-Fi, GPRS, Bluetooth, WLAN and Wi-Fi hotspot.
Last month, another device from its Fun series – the Canvas A76 was launched online. For a tad higher price of Rs 8499, the device sports a larger 5-inch display. It is powered by a 1.2GHz processor and runs on Android v4.2. Around the same time, we also saw the release of the extremely budget-friendly A34 with dual SIM capability. The affordable handset is priced at Rs 4,399 and sports a 3.5-inch display with a resolution of 480 x 320 pixels. Looks like Micromax is aiming at catering to every budget segment in the Indian market.
