Micromax announced on May 16, 2016 that its newest smartphone, the Canvas Evok would now be available for sale. The entry-level priced smartphone packs power as well as functionality, targeting young professionals in a digital age.
The Canvas Evok comes along with a 5.5” HD display screen with 16M colours, that is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The edges of the phone are curved so it appears as though the whole device is made of glass, when viewing it from atop. The phone runs on a 1.4GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 415 chipset that is backed with an Adreno 405 GPU for enhanced graphics at lower energy consumption. The phone sports 16GB of internal storage and comes along with a 3,000mAh battery for long usage cycles.
The back of the phone houses a 13MP camera with autofocus and a 5P Largan lens for better low-light imaging. The front face of the device has a 5MP lens for selfies and video-calls. With the inclusion of a 3GB LPDDR3 RAM, Micromax promises versatility and ease of multitasking on the new phone.
Micromax will make the Canvas Evok available to buyers beginning today, May 17, 2016. The phones will be available only through their official online channel partners, Flipkart for a price of Rs.8,499. The Micromax Canvas Evok is only available in one colour: Black.
