Micromax is going to launch Canvas Spark in India on April 21. The company has been teasing the upcoming smartphone for over a week now.
Micromax has sent out media invites to us regarding the launch of Canvas Spark. It is launching on April 21 (Tuesday) at a media event in Delhi. The invite says “Watch Sparks Fly”, which indicates a smartphone with the combination of the latest software and hardware.
We went through few teasers of Canvas Spark on Micromax Mobile’s Facebook page and it reveals the upcoming smartphone will run on Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box. It will have a good camera, HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass protection. Other specifications of the smartphone are unknown at the moment.
Canvas Spark will be a budget smartphone priced below Rs 6,000 according to TOI. Micromax would certainly aim at the price segment dominated by the Redmi 2, Moto E 2nd Gen 3G and Lenovo A6000 in India. So it is looking quite realistic to be priced under Rs 6,000 with similar hardware prowess.
Micromax will be selling the Canvas Spark exclusively on Snapdeal via flash sale, according to a teaser. A flash sale would ensure hype for the device along with good hardware and value for money pricing. We would know more about the availability and pricing on April 21.
