Micromax Canvas 4 HD specification to trump Blu

Under: Mobile Phones
By:Daniel | July 4th, 2013

Over the past couple of days we have seen the Micromax Canvas 4 HD specification compared to BLU Life One by a number of people on Facebook. While it is clear to see this smartphone looks like the Micromax Canvas 4 from an external point of view, and also when it comes to specs, we noticed some features that would upset our readers that pre-ordered the new Micromax phone.

The image below this article landed on the official Facebook page within the last hour, and it once again promotes the Micromax Canvas 4 without official specs or even a price. This has resulted in more comments asking for these details and Micromax explaining they will be detailed in full on July 8.

This picture reveals that the Micromax Canvas 4 has a 13MP camera and this is just what the Blu Life One features as well. The rumored Micromax Canvas 4 specs reveal other similarities as well, but also some features seem to be lacking on the Blu Life One.

Micromax Canvas 4 camera, battery life and memory – after hearing comments like, “Micromax is selling Blu Life One as Canvas 4 in India” we thought a closer look would be needed. Specs for Blu Life One include 1GB of RAM, a 2000 mAh battery and 720p display. The Micromax Canvas 4 HD would certainly be a disappointment if it featured these specs as well.

Optimism has been high for what the Micromax Canvas 4 specification would be and some people have even risked a pre-order without knowing the final price or full specs. It is true that refunds can be given, but how many people will ask for a refund if the specs included what we mentioned above?

What battery, RAM and display should the Micromax Canvas 4 launch with? We have already looked at the white option available with pre-orders and compared to an expected black version, although will you want a refund if specs fail to deliver? Leave a comment below with your thoughts on the above.

    • doc

      micromax says will start shipping canvas 4 on 10th july so what happened to the earlier statement of time till july 15th to opt for refund. looks like canvas 4 is having above mentioned specs only and micromax is getting cold feet that 90% of pre orders will go for refund.

  • Hitesh

    Yeah..if the specs are similar to BLU Life One, I will ask for refund on 8th of July itself…

    People who already booked understand that it is competing Samsung Galaxy S4. If required the price band may be increased to Rs.18000/- . But Micromax should not compromise with the underneath specifications.

    • Suyog Pandey

      did you realise there is already a better phone at around 2400o rs. mark
      the NEXUS 4!! YOU GETA QUALITY BUILT PRODUCT FOR THIS PRICE BY GOOGLE ! AND LG

    • sharath

      can we get a phone with the above spec Micromax :) ????

    • Anshul

      jayant…..sanjay already told us…..then why u copying the same…XO

  • Chintan

    I will not take Refunds, because i didn’t Expected this much HIGHER specs in micromax this SOON..!!! There were only rumors about 2GB RAM, 2GHZ OCTA-CORE Processor…. O, come on man!!! How can you believe in rumors???
    According to this rumors, it would be a BIG BIG jump by Micromax….And Even SAMSUNG or LG or HTC doesn’t have such a BIG jump from their early mobiles….
    If you Pre-orderd the Phone by Believing on these RUMORS, Then probably you people are nothing but a FOOL!!
    The Reason why People are going to ask for Refunds, is that they expected TOO MUCH HIGHER specs….. If these “RUMORED SPECS” would not have been “RUMORED”, then definitely they would not be asking for Refunds if the specs were low…,because they would have not EXPECTED these higher specs… This is nothing but EXPECTATIONS vs REALITY!!!!
    Whatever People Say,… I AM GOING TO BUY THIS PHONE FOR SURE!!!!

    • sharath

      is asking 3000 mAH battery for a 5 inch screen and 2Gb RAM too much ?????.

      with big processors and storage the 2000 mAH battery will drain out so fast that one will need to regularly recharge the phone battery. further with 1Gb RAM the multi-tasking would also be really painful !!!!!!!

      • sanjay

        why don’t you ask samsung ,sony,htc or even nokia to provide 3000mAH battery with their 5 inches phones……If you guys want so many specs in extreme lower priced phones like micromax then i will Suggest you to setup your own company !!

    • Vijay

      Here you seems like a real FOOL who want to spend extra 5K just for upgraded camera when same specs are available in Canvas116HD at price of 13K only and phone performance is already tested and appraised by users.

      • Ghost

        But there are also So MANY NEW Features that ONLY Premium Phones Like Samsung Galaxy S4 provides!!!! Like “Look Away Feature”, “Half in Half Feature”, “Lift the Phone to Dial”,Simplified Multi Tasking, 16GB internal Storage, Vertical Panorama, Camera with SONY BSI Sensor, and Many More!!!
        I think this is more than enough for this price tag…. I think no other phone companies can provide such Premium Features at this price level….. And basically narrow minded and People having “Less Knowledge About PHONES”, see only the “Specs of the Phone”, and not the internal Amazing Features that the Phone provides… No doubt that the specs Must be the Priority, but we should also see the flip side of the coin, that provides such a great Facilities…

        Else whatever you think!!!

  • Punith

    With naming convention of model -A210 it looks like at least 2 GB RAM. If it is above mentioned specification. I don’t think will be interesting one.

    • shiva

      a110 had just 512 mb ram

  • Romil

    Refund…. If the specs would be as mentioned in ur article….

    I booked Canvas 4 after beleiving that it may comes with 2GB Ram, 1080P screen Resolution and 3000 Mah battery, for such spec i think shelling out 17K can be justified but if the specs are as per above report 720P, 2000 Mah and 1 GB ram then definately most of the proud customers who booked canvas 4 will click the REFUND tab on 8th of july itself including me :) coz shelling 17 – 18K for 13mp rear n 5MP front cam is just foolishness, better then i ll go for canvas 116 HD….but really wish the above report comes as false n past rumors comes as REALITY :)

  • praveen

    hi wont this phone…….

  • vMohan

    the thing is, micromax has been giving better-than-samsung specs for like, THE best prices.. so we’ve kinda started to expect more from micromax…
    naturally, i had set hopes high, and if the canvas 4 turns out to be just a rebranded life one, or a canvas hd with better cameras, i’ll be disappointed, that’s for sure…

  • Sanjay

    I want to ask a question to all Indians on this platform.
    Why are you guys so partial in your attitude towards your locally owned brands?
    1) If it was a Samsung or Motorola or Nokia or even a feature less Apple you guys would have paid anything for them,But when we talk about Indian start ups , You people expect so much from them at such a lower prices. Why ?
    2) How can a Budding company like Micromax provide Smartphones comparable to Samsung at a lower price and at the same time offer you guys Excellent customer service and Android Updates. Aren’t we expecting too much from them ?
    3)When we look at big countries like America and china they love their local brands eg. Apple in USA and Huwaei and Lenovo in China But when it comes to India we guys run towards Foreign brands. why ?
    P.S.–>Please don’t say that Micromax Manufactures its devices in China so its not Indian because even apple and Nokia are being manufactured by chinese these days and these brands do not relate to them.
    I am eager to see your answers.

    • Ghost

      Salute to You….!!

      I am trying to Explain the same to These People!!
      I mean there are so many GREAT Features the Phone has, like “Look Away Feature”, “Half in Half Feature”, “Lift the Phone to Dial”,Simplified Multi Tasking, 16GB internal Storage, Vertical Panorama, Camera with SONY BSI Sensor, and Many More!!! And these narrow minded People having “Less Knowledge About PHONES”, see only the “Specs of the Phone”, and not the internal Amazing Features that the Phone provides……
      If it was Samsung or HTC or any other Brand then it would have definitely Charged around Rs.25K…….. Best example is Galaxy Mega 5.8! It has same to same features like Canvas 4, but has charged 25K for that!! Even some features are less in Galzxy Mega 5.8 than in Canvas 4, still charging higher money!!!
      And these People don’t care a DAMN about it…..
