Less than 24 hours after the arrival of the Canvas Xpress 4G, Micromax appears to be gearing up to launch another Canvas-series smartphone, the Canvas Nitro 3.
Although the smartphone hasn’t been listed on the company’s website, it’s available for sale via a third party retailer (eBay India) at Rs. 8,130 (that’s about 25,000 Naira).
However one cannot be certain if this will be the official launch price of the smartphone when it’s officially unveiled in India.
The Micromax Canvas Nitro 3 smartphone has a slim and slick design – it measures 144.3 x 72 x 8.7 mm.
It features a 5-inch HD (720 x 1280p) IPS display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for protection and runs Android’s 5.1 Lollipop operating system.
The smartphone is powered by an octa-core MediaTek (MT6592M) processor clocked at 1.4GHz, which is coupled with 2GB of RAM. This offers moderate performance in execution of applications and games.
The new handset also comes with 16GB of inbuilt storage, and has a microSD slot where its storage capacity can be expanded up to 32 GB- that’s if more memory is needed.
The Micromax Canvas Nitro 3 sports a 13 megapixel rear autofocus camera, while a 5 megapixel fixed-focus camera is built in its front to render selfie and video call services. Notably, both the front and rear cameras come with flash support.
The Canvas Nitro 3 is backed by a 2500mAh battery. It bears an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, and proximity sensor.
Connectivity options on the phone include 3G (HSPA+), Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, Micro-USB 2.0, GPS/ A-GPS, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
It is worthy to note that the smartphone listed on eBay India supports dual SIM cards just like every other Micromax smartphone out there but it lacks 4G LTE connectivity unlike its counterparts.
The Cat. 4G LTE support especially had been Micromax’s recent strong point in its new phones as it allows for download speeds up to 150mbps.
Maybe Micromax would’ve built the 4G LTE support in the official version of the phone.
