At a press event in India with tennis stars in attendance, Micromax took the wraps off the Canvas Selfie smartphone. As its name suggests, the dual-SIM handset is designed with self portraits in mind. Like the HTC Desire Eye, Micromax Canvas Selfie features a 13MP front-facing camera with LED flash.
Micromax Canvas Selfie packs 1.7GHz octa-core CPU, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of expandable memory. The device’s display is a 4.7” 720p unit covered by Gorilla Glass 3. The smartphone boots Android 4.4 KitKat and is powered by a 2,300mAh battery.
The main camera of the Canvas Selfie is a 13MP Sony sensor with dual-LED flash. The front-facing unit is listed as having a single LED light.
As expected from a selfie-centric phone, Micromax Canvas Selfie will offer a number of software tricks that will help users edit the photos they captured of themselves. Some of the features include Eye Enhancement and Face Slimming among others.
Micromax Canvas Selfie will launch in India in the second week of January in two colors - Angelic White and Mystic Blue. Pricing will be announced as the launch nears.
