Micromax launched a new Android smartphone called Canvas Elanza A93 in India. The phone is priced Rs. 9400 at Snapdeal. As of now snapdeal exclusively sells the device online.
An official announcement of the device is yet to come. The phone features a 5 inch display with qHd (960 x 540 p) resolution. It is powered by a 1.3 GHz dual core processor, possibly the MediaTek MT 6572. The processor is paired with 1 GB of RAM. Here Micromax plays a different game by pairing 1 GB RAM with a dual core processor.
The internal memory is 4 GB, which can be expanded up to 32 GB using a microSD card. The rear camera has a 5 MP sensor while on the front is a VGA camera.
This is a dual SIM phone and supports 3G and 2G networks. All the regular connectivity options like WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, USB etc are present in this device.
It runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS. The battery is of 1,950mAh capacity.
In this price segment Micromax Canvas Elanza will find competition from the quad core phones in the market. The launch price of Rs 9400 seems little higher for a dual core phone, when phones with quad core processor and 1 GB RAM are available in the market at lesser price.
Popular phones in 10000 range includes Xolo Q800 X-edition, Karbon Titanium S5 plus and Xolo Q1000S Opus. This phone is sure to have some serious competition unless the price goes down.
