Micromax-Canvas-Infinity

After launching the Evok Dual Note in India last week, Micromax on Tuesday launched the Canvas Infinity smartphone in India. The big highlights of the Micromax Canvas Infinity are its 5.7-inch 18:9 display and its 16-megapixel selfie camera setup. The smartphone is an Amazon India exclusive, but will also go on sale via offline stores at a later date.

Micromax Canvas Infinity price in India, availability
The Micromax Canvas Infinity price in India is Rs. 9,999, and to start with, the smartphone is an Amazon India exclusive. Registrations for the first sale on September 1 have already begun. The first sale will be held at 12pm IST.

Micromax Canvas Infinity features
The Micromax Canvas Infinity has a metal body with the fingerprint scanner at the back, right below the single camera setup. It sports top and bottom antenna bands, and has the speaker setup at the back as well. The front has capacitive buttons, and the 3.5mm audio jack sits on the top edge of the smartphone. The Micro-USB port sits at the bottom edge as well. As we mentioned, the highlight of the smartphone is its 18:9 aspect ratio display, which manages to fit a 5.7-inch screen in a frame comparable to the iPhone 7 Plus. This makes it the only budget smartphone in the Indian market right now, with the exception of the LG Q6 priced at Rs. 14,990, with an 18:9 display aspect ratio.

At the launch event of this smartphone, Micromax also announced a 24-hour service promise to repair or replace the device in that stipulated time frame. Micromax claims that this service will be available at Micromax Express Service centres exclusively, and the list of these centres will be updated on the website. Micromax also confirmed that the Canvas Infinity will get the Android 8.0 Oreo update soon. Notably, the factory system images and OTA update for compatible phones were made live by Google just a day ago. As we mentioned, While the smartphone is an Amazon India exclusive for now, co-founder Rahul Sharma did confirm that the smartphone will be sold through offline channels as well, eventually.

Micromax Canvas Infinity specifications
As for specifications, the Micromax Canvas Infinity runs on Android 7.0 Nougat, and sports dual-SIM slots and a dedicated slot for microSD.

Coming to the big highlight, the Micromax Canvas Infinity sports a 16-megapixel selfie camera with soft selfie flash, f/2.0 aperture, 5P lens, and face beauty modes. The phone comes with Super Pixel which clicks multiple pictures at the same time and combines them to give you higher resolution and more details. At the back, the smartphone sports a 13-megapixel sensor with flash support and f/2.0 aperture as well. The camera mode gives you a Real Time Bokeh effect and Re-Focus option – an effect which will allow you to select the focus area after shooting, allowing you to click pictures that seem to be taken on the macro mode of an SLR camera.
