Micromax Canvas 4 specifications, features,price

KW: Canvas 4, specifications, price, 1.7GHz, info

The wait is finally over. Micromax has shaken up the mobile-world by giving a sneak-peek to the most hyped and anticipated smartphone of the year - Micromax  Canvas 4 A210.

Now Micromax has not been able to live upto the expectations of the people as the mass was expecting an over-clocked processor with 2GB of RAM , 1080p displays, but it seems MMX has concentrated on the  features than on technical specifications .

The Canvas 4 does posses some unique abilities that is not seen in devices priced the same.
Some features which might excite you:

  • It has the "Blow to unlock feature" i.e. you can just blow at the screen to unlock your device
  • Answer a coming call by just taking your Canvas 4 close to your ear.
  • Select a contact and take it close to your ear and make the call, i.e. no need of dialing anymore
  • Just flip your phone upside down to silent any incoming call.
  • Pin applications in your homescreens.- e.g. while browsing pin your video player also and enjoy watching while browsing, known as multi-window.
  • Take a peek of another video without pausing your current video. 
  • "Look Away" feature- Videos automatically pause when eyes are moved away from screen.Even works with glasses on, that did not work even in the Galaxy S4.
  • Till now Panaroma pics were clicked horizontally but now click it vertically, i.e. from top to down.
  • New M!Power app pre-installed-Now block your SIM, take back-up, wipe data during theft. Free for 1 year.
  • No need of 3rd party video player apps like MX player as default app supports many formats, onscreen volume and brightness up down.
  • OTG & OTA Facility
  • Touch the screen with gloves on.
  • Surface Touch Technology flip cover free.

So as you can see the Canvas 4 comes loaded with features that are halfway found in devices which cost a premium.
The Canvas 4 looks to be quite slim,  may be 8.9 mm in width or even less. The camera seems to be slightly protruded and there's a silver bezel running through the sides of the body. The body is made of plastic, but will slightly vary in looks from its predecessors as it is the most elegant and modish Canvas yet. The camera placement has also been changed and the flash and the noise cancellation mike, just by the side of it. The backside is also a designed one, seems like brushed finish.

The confirmed spec-sheet are as follows:

  • Processor:1.2Ghz MTK processor.
  • RAM: 1GB
  • Display:  5" 720p display with Corning Gorilla Glass 2
  • OS: Android 4.2.1; upgradable to 4.3
  • Camera:  13MP rear camera with Xenon flash and Sony Sensor; front camera: 5 MP
  • Storage: 16GB internal; 32GB expandable
  • Battery:  2000mAh
  • Sensors: proximity, light, accelerometer

MMX this time also did not put up any custom UI, and for long they have kept the pure vanilla flavor of Android, i.e. stock Android UI, which is actually very wise to do so, as more the customization,  more the memory and CPU will get taxed.

News is also there,  that apart from the smoky grey  and pristine white colours of the phone,  alternate colours like baby pink and electric blue will also feature with the Canvas 4. This is yet to be confirmed,  but what is confirmed by TechxcyT is that MMX is also going to release custom designed covers, flip covers and dedicated accessories for the Canvas 4, what special about the flip over is that you get high sensitivity Aluminium brushed Surface Touch Technology flip cover worth Rs.2999 absolutely free.


Quadrant: 3998, 4125

AnTuTu: 12993, 13714

NenaMark2: 46.5fps

Now coming to price,  it is priced at Rs. 17,999. Now to get the same features from brands like Samsung, HTC will land you to shell off a premium, so Micromax has a good stand here. The features are surely cool enough to stand out of the crowd and new things which MMX has experimented with like the flip cover, air gestures, M!power app are surely commendable. Coming to specs, a lot is left to be desired but you cannot just push everything into one device keeping the price less.Yes, for some the 18,000 price might seem too high and I also think Rs.16,500 would have made the deal. I recommend to buy this but try to wait a little if you want the price to lessen,  It's earlier flagship phone, the Canvas HD was a huge hit and is still the current mid-range market leader.
The camera is an excellent piece of equipment and photo-shooters will surely love it which comes with the SONY sensor. Another feature worth stating is the Corning Gorilla Glass applied to the screen, which makes it scratch resistant and makes it unbreakable. The inbuilt 16GB of storage is a behemoth and can be extended to 32GB via SD card. TechxcyT is a little unhappy with the price and the specs but quite happy with the profound features and in categories like camera, storage and display. You have the Karbonn Titanium S9 with the same specs, except a 5.5" screen, no Gorilla glass, no air geatures, no SONY sensor camera but still priced at Rs.19000.  So the Micromax Canvas 4 is recommended over the Titanium S9.
Another phone which is also generating a lot of hype is the LAVA Iris 504Q phone. Click the link: LAVA Iris 504Q  to know more about its interesting features like gesture control, 1.2
processor, 720p display
 and much more. Also have a look at the stunning 5.5" Karbonn Titanium S9 over here: Karbonn Titanium S9 Features.

    1. Dear Subhra, first of all you must be thinking your comment wouldn't get published but sorry I am not at the least afraid of your lame comment. Lme because, first and foremost, there's no site named as igyaan.com(the 1 your indicating to). Its igyaan.in. Second, these are rumored & speculated specs that many sites ave pointed out. Third if I had copied then my site would have come below igyaan in the google page search. Last of all, if Bharat Nagpal, owner of iGyaan comes and says that the specs are copied, I will shut down TechxcyT. But he isn't like you, as he knows what is copying and what is genuine. Subhra, if you have further problems, feel free to leave a comment and if my reply still does not make any ssense to you, you are welcomed for ignoring TechxcyT and be happy with iGyaan.

  2. hi... i want to know is that the same design mmx teased us in t.v advert?i doubt it cz white one looks completely different.

    1. Yes do not keep any doubt regarding the design seen on tv conmercial and the white one. The slight difference is due to the fact that, the brushed back finish looks more prominent and modish in the black variant of Canvas 4. None the less, white one also features the same design if you closely look. Both the models will be exactly the same in design and size, be it in the tv ad or the white one which is up for booking.

  3. Is black 1 available fo bookin?or should v have to buy white only after bookin?...pls do reply...thankx

    1. Tricky question Pawan. When you visit te online store site, you are greeted with the white variant of the Canvas 4. Then upon clicking the booking option, it shows the black one on the left. According to me, as the site gives us the different pics of the white model, I think the booking is of the white model.

  4. hi sir, i want to know which mobile camera is best canvas 4 or carbon s9 and any other device that comes 20k.

    1. Within 20k, Canvas 4 has the best camera , better than Karbonn titanium s9.

  5. iBerry Auxus Nuclea N1 Compare Samsung Galaxy S 3

  6. im planning to buy canvas4..
    is this mobile better than mega5.8?
    coz my idea was to buy mega5.8,but one of my frnd suggested canvas4..
    watz de customers opinion about canvas4? are they satisfied?
    i wana buy a powerful & good mobile which costs less than 25k.
    if canvas4 is not a deal plz suggest me some other phones..

    1. Surely go ahead with your purchase. Customers are very much satisfied with it. It is good for gaming, multimedia and daily usage. The features particularly work well and some of them are better than galaxy s4. But if you have a budget of 25k, you can also look into Google Nexus 4.

  7. Will canvas 4 price go down to 15k as people are dissatisfied with ram,battery and screen resolution ? Should I wait for price drop or buy it now?

    1. Yes it will surely get a price drop but not so soon. A little late. Till that time you would find better phones coming. You can buy it off now or if you can wait for one month, then I suggest waiting. But price drop will take a lot off time.

  8. i see White colour line on top of the screen pls hlp me to fix it

    1. Go for a screen update in settings or head over to sc.

    2. Hai pratik
      Iam using canvas turbo mini can u plz help me get pause on loik away on my phone?????

  9. Bro I think xolo t1000 is better than canvas 4 in terms of hardware specs suggest your opinion

    1. Yes hardware-wise it is. Actually Xolo PLay is great for gaming and scrores high too. But if you look into overall processing power, the benchmark scores suggest both of them equal, where MMX Canvas 4 is a little ahead of it.
