Stepping up its game, Micromax has launched its first Android Marshmallow based smartphone, the Canvas Spark 2 Plus, which will retail exclusively on Snapdeal.com for 3,399 INR.
Talking of specifications and features, the Micromax Canvas Spark 2 includes a 5-inch FWVGA Display and is powered by 1.3GHz quad core processor with 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage. The storage can further be expanded using MicroSD card slot.
Other features include 5MP rear camera with flash, 2MP front camera, 2000 mAh battery and support for 10 regional languages. Users can also swipe right to translate or left to transliterate their messages is any of the 10 languages.
Commenting on the new launches, Mr. Shubhajit Sen, Chief Marketing Officer, Micromax Informatics, said, “A large number of consumers are still using feature phones or a second hand phones, which provide immense scope and potential for them to upgrade to affordable smartphones. With the launch of the Canvas Spark 2 Plus, we are offering first time users, with a smooth transition at a wallet-friendly price. Our objective is to convert feature phone users into smartphone users, and synthesize technology and affordability in for this device.”
Canvas Spark series has done well for Micromax so far. The domestic manufacturer has sold over 1.5 million so far, largely owing to the ‘value for money’ factor associated with the Spark portfolio. Micromax is finally transitioning to Marshmallow, and that’s a good thing, but we would have liked to see Marshmallow based software with more refined custom skin on top on high end devices like Micromax Canvas 6 and Canvas 6Pro.
