Micromax has launched its newest smartphone Canvas Infinity at an event held in Delhi earlier today. The unique thing about the phone is its full vision display which is 5.7-inch tall with HD resolution and offers 18:9 aspect ratio like the Samsung Galaxy S8‘s Infinity Display. It is priced at Rs. 9,999 which makes it the cheapest smartphone in the country to offer 18:9 display followed by the recently announced LG Q6 which costs Rs. 14,999.
As for other specifications, the Micromax Canvas Infinity features the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM. It has a 13-megapixel rear shooter with f/2.0 aperture, Auto HDR mode, and LED flash. For selfie lovers, it offers a 16-megapixel front shooter with f/2.0 aperture along with front flash and real-time Bokeh effect. There is also a Super Pixel mode for the rear camera which is said to click multiple shots at once and merge them together to offer the best possible and sharper result.
