About Micromax Canvas A1 – Android One Smartphone
Google launched its Android One initiative for India by unveiling three smartphones catered to the budget conscious mass. Google from its Android One initiative mandates hardware designs of the smartphones along with providing its own Android OS to the partners for manufacturing of advanced yet affordable smartphones for the people.
The first batch of smartphones include Micromax Canvas A1, Karbonn Sparkle V and Spice Dream Uno. They are similar in specifications apart from their outer design which differentiates them from each other. The Micromax Canvas A1 flaunts a 4.5-inch IPS display with a FWVGA resolution (854×480 pixels). It features a 5-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front facing camera.
The Canvas A1 is operational on MediaTek MT6582 quad-core processor clocked at 1.3 GHz coupled with 1 GB of RAM and 4 GB internal memory which can be further expanded up to 32 GB via microSD card. Micromax Canvas A1 runs on Android 4.4.4 KitKat and Google has promised an update to Android L as and when it is made available.
On the connectivity front, the device has dual-SIM card slots, is 3G supported, and has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth modules as well. Additionally, it also features a set of basic set of sensors. The Canvas A1 will draw its juice from a 1700 mAh battery.
Micromax Canvas A1 is priced at Rs. 6,499 and is available on Amazon.in for now but it would also be seen in brick and mortar enclosures in the coming weeks. These Android One powered devices will compete against the likes of Moto E which is already a successful device and is priced in the same bracket.
