Indian smartphone maker Micromax has made another addition to its Canvas series of smartphones with a new entrant called the Canvas Selfie 2. The company went the quiet way in terms of the launch of the phone and preferred not to unveil it in a glitzy ceremony.

As is evident by the device’s name, the phone is a selfie-centric outing by Micromax and employs an 8MP camera on the front to live up to that billing. The features on the selfie snapper include a Glass IR Filter, Sony IMX135 sensor, f/2.0 aperture, 5P lens and LED flash.
On the back, we have a 13MP camera with features like an f/2.0 aperture (same as the one on the front), an OV 8856 sensor, 84-degree field-of-view, 5P lens and LED flash. Speaking of the back of the phone you will also find a fingerprint sensor there.
Powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6737 chipset, the Canvas Selfie 2 runs on the latest Android Nougat OS (version 7.0) and has a 3GB/32GB RAM/ROM combination. Other than that, it has a 3,000mAh battery put into use to keep it alive.
Also, the Micromax Canvas Selfie 2 carries most of the Android Nougat features, such as Multi Window Support, Reply from the notification panel, Enhanced Doze Mode, New quick settings option and bundled notifications.
The company has set the price of its latest device at Rs. 9,999 (it also comes with a 100-day replacement warranty), although it is already available on eBay for a lesser amount (Rs. 8,999)
