Micromax Canvas Gold A300 goes on sale in India for INR 23,999

Micromax Canvas Gold A300Micromax has quietly started selling the new Canvas Gold smartphone in the Indian market. Now available at Infibeam.com for INR 23,999, it is the most expensive phone from the company till date.

For this hefty pricing, you will get a 5.5-inch full HD display, 2GHz octa-core processor (most likely from MediaTek), Android 4.4.2, and 2300 mAh battery. On the imaging front, Micromax has included a 16MP auto-focus rear camera sensor from Sony with LED flash and a 5MP front shooter.

In addition, the Canvas Gold A300 packs dual-SIM support, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and 3G.

While the specifications (apart from the just 2300 mAh battery) are quite decent, we doubt if the consumers will be willing to spend 24K on a Micromax smartphone. Despite being the second biggest smartphone vendor in the country, the company is yet to shed the tag of being a non-premium smartphone maker.

The phone will be competing with the likes of Gionee Elife E7, Huawei Honor 3X G750, Xperia T2 Ultra, and Alcatel One Touch Idol X+ in the country.

We are still waiting for the official launch, which could happen anytime over the coming week.

    This is just a brand building exercise from MMX. Pretty sure even MMX themselves don’t expect to move a lot of these, because at that price, the phone will be competing with the Nexus 5 and the Galaxy S4 for all practical purposes.
