Micromax Canvas Selfie 2 and Canvas Selfie 3 announced for India
Micromax is a company that stays busy, and today they have announced not one, but two new handsets for India. The Micromax Canvas Selfie 2 and the Canvas Selfie 3 won’t set the world ablaze with their specs, but they may prove popular with the selfie crowd.
The Micromax Canvas Selfie 2 and its similarly named sibling, the Micromax Canvas Selfie 3, are aimed at folks that enjoy taking pictures of yourself. Don’t shake your head, we have all been there. As you might suspect, both handsets are mid-range and share the same specifications aside from the displays, batteries and cameras.
Both the Micromax Canvas Selfie 2 and the Micromax Canvas Selfie 3 are powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM and come with 8GB of internal storage. The connectivity options stay the same as well, so you’re looking at 3G, Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi, and dual-SIM capabilities. The Micromax Canvas Selfie 2 Q340 is the larger device with a 5-inch IPS display carrying a resolution of 854 x 480 while the Canvas Selfie 3 Q348 will have a 4.8-inch AMOLED panel with a resolution of 1,280 x 720.
The differences continue in the camera department where the Micromax Canvas Selfie 3 is the clear winner. That’s due to an 8MP sensor with a Blue Glass 5P Largan Lens and LED flash on its backside to go along with an 8MP wide-angle Sony MX179 sensor with an LED flash on the front. The Canvas 2’s snappers dip down to 5MP rear and front sensors, but only the rear camera has a flash. Last but not least are the batteries as the Canvas Selfie 2 has a 2,000mAh juice box compared to the 2,300mAh battery found in the Canvas Selfie 3.
Now for the price. The Micromax Canvas Selfie 2 will step up to the plate first and will be available in Black for Rs. 5,999 starting August 22nd. The Micromax Canvas Selfie 3 will arrive during the last week of August in Purple, Sky Blue, Yellow, Green, and Blue but pricing has yet to be announced.
