Micromax has announced the launch of a 6-inch Android smartphone in the Indian market today. Dubbed as Micromax Canvas XL, the phone has been priced at INR 13,990. According to Micromax, the phone will go on sale at HomeShop18 beginning January 19.
Micromax Canvas XL features a 6-inch qHD display, 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, microSD card slot and Android 4.2. The phone also comes with 2450 mAH battery, 8MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, 3G support and dual-SIM connectivity.
The smartphone seems to be Micromax’s answer to upcoming Sony Xperia T2 Ultra and HP Slate 6 VoiceTab devices. Apart from the poor resolution display, the device seems decent on-paper. It is being targeted to the consumers who don’t want to carry both tablet as well as smartphone on-the-go thus a large-screen phone, which can do the work of two devices.
