Micromax’s Canvas series flagships have always managed to arouse keen interest. Canvas 4 was launched in mid-2013 amidst huge fanfare (Micromax even started taking pre-orders for 5K before revealing full specifications) and since then, rumors of Canvas 5 have regularly surfaced, though the company managed to dodge the moniker each time. We thought the Canvas Sliver 5 was it, but finally the Canvas 5 has arrived loaded with all bells and whistles.

The handset is just 8.5 mm thick and flaunts a leather-finish plastic back cover. It has metal around side edges and includes a 5.2 Inch full HD 1080P display with 2.5D Gorilla Glass on top that gently curves at the sides.


The Micromax Canvas 5 promises uncompromised performance, powered by 1.3 GHz MT6753 octa-core processor assisted by 3GB RAM, 16GB internal storage and Mali T720GPU. On the rear side there is a 13MP primary shooter with Samsung 3M2 sensor and PDAF, and the front 5MP selfie snapper includes LED flash.

There are several preloaded apps on the customized Android 5.1 Lollipop based interface, but you can uninstall all of them. Other notable features include 4G LTE / 3G HSPA+, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, 64 GB MicroSD card support and 2900mAh battery.
