Micromax Canvas 4 pre-booking numbers revealed

Micromax has revealed it had received as many as 4,081 pre-orders for the Canvas 4 in the first seven hours yesterday. The company opened the pre-order at 12 noon and had received these orders by 7 PM. This is commendable considering the Indian handset vendor has not revealed the final specifications or the price of the phone.

According to the pre-order terms and conditions, interested buyers must pay Rs 5,000 to book their unit. Micromax would announce the specifications and price at a launch event on July 8 and those who have pre-booked a phone will then have an option to either claim for a refund or pay the balance amount within a week to get their phone.


The Canvas series of smartphones have proven to be pretty successful for Micromax and help it make significant gains in the smartphone market share in India. The first smartphone under the series was launched in August last year and since then eight more models have been added in the series, with the Canvas Lite A92 being the latest addition. On April 25, Micromax claimed it sold over a million Canvas smartphones since its launch less than a year ago, instantly making it one of the most popular smartphone series for any Indian handset vendor.

However, things haven’t been without controversy for Micromax. On February 14 this year, the company announced opening online pre-booking of its Canvas HD. The next day, Micromax revealed it had sold over 9,000 units of the phone in the first 24 hours, hitting sales of 25 units per minute. However, the shipments were delayed and many of those who had pre-booked the phone had to wait longer than expected. Then Micromax raised the price of the phone from Rs 13,990 to Rs 14,499, attributing it to new excise rate changes.

Considering the past fiasco, it is interesting that not only has Micromax gone for the pre-booking route for the Canvas 4 but has also made the process murkier by not revealing the price or even the specifications. We reached out to Micromax for the latest pre-order status, 24 hours after it was opened but are yet to hear from the company.

    Ha ha ha ha watz wrong wid u people without knowing the actual specs u r pre-booking diz piece of shit lolzzzzzz……………………………ROFL…;) :) :P

  • Kk

    Only by encouraging micromax and other indian players you can control the industry bigs like apple and samsung who thinks india as their dump yard….I am proud to say that I have prebooked this phone

    • Kay

      If Micromax is providing the same hardware technologies in lower price than fools must be buying by paying double the price for Samsung, Apple shit.

      At software end this company is still evolving. Providing it’s consumers latest OS as well.

  • raghu

    Agree with KK we should encourage indian players specialy whenn they are givin such good results , n I’m sure Canvas4 wil surely be released with best of technology against current generation phones…

  • chikku

    Micromax doesn’t care about the quality of the product, just read the specs on SAR values of their phones. Only specs doesn’t matter, quad core processors multicore graphics can give you good gameplay but cant bring back your nuts back in shape.

  • Vinni

    That means Rs 2 crore in the kitty for 15 days without any interest payment. Wow, I wonder if any bank would have given MMX a loan of Rs 2 crore without any interest for 15 days??? but why go to a bank when there are 4081 good Samaritans.

    Are we in the 80′s??

    • sanjay

      In 2011 Micromax thought to go for IPO. Estimated value of IPO was 110 million dollars i.e. 649 crore Inr (1$= 59 rupee)….They letter refused to go for it….For Micromax 2 crores rupees are peanuts.

      • Vinni

        If 2 crore is peanuts then why take it in the first place?? Besides my point was “Would any bank give MMX Rs 2 crore loan for 15 days without any interest??”
        When it comes to IPO valuations, the less we talk its better, I have spent a long long time in the Finance world to know how these valuations are arrived at by Greedy Lead Managers. If you need proof go find out details of all the companies that have come with an IPO in the last 2 years and where their stock prices are today.

    Buying smart phones from an Indian company and contributing in its success is really a great thing. Be Indian buy Indian(Brands).

  • Shyam

    Hi,

    Every Business Just Think About the Foll people in 1 Billion Population you can get easily 10 Lac Customer Who can blindly buy your Product so just Think only that 10 lac Customer nothing else and why the way There is not less chutiya people in India.

  • j singh

    In simple words MMX is game player
    But side by side he is assuring of money refund.. That’s a big point ..ppl should go for it cos those who booked that they will get 12-13k and then after it will goes to 16-18. I think we should support MMX only few booking can’t help them financially I think they must manufacture around 2 million phones

  • Yubaraj

    I am very interested to know whoever is calling micromax an indian company, can you people please tell me where is their manufacturing plant or R&D centre?

    • sanjay

      Micromax Researh centre is in Gurgaon office of Micromax.But I would like to ask you where is the manufacturing centre of Apple Iphones in America, since it is an american brand so its manufacturing should take place in america and also please tell me where are the Philips and Dell products manufactured.

      Bro Due to Competitive Bussiness situations every company is Using China to manufacture it products,But It is Important the Profits of Micromax are not going outside our country like Apple and samsung revenues are going to america and korea.
      If you don’t like to contribute to your Nation Economy then don’t but Please don’t discourage others.
      Regards
      Sanjay

  • Vijendra Tembhurkar

    Hi Rajat! Plz let me know the pre booking number to book a micromax canvas 4 phone

  • narain

    MICROMAX is going to win
    samsung was same about a decade back when Nokia was leading mobile brand
    being INDIANs appreciate INDIAN company which is giving u good product at economy
    why u guys are favouring AMERICAN & KOREAN mobile companies
    becoz of u people only Rupee is going down as compared to Dollors
    dont u feel INDIAN should grow
    Let INDIA grow
    and MMX has promised refund option on day of Lanch if not satisfied
    whats wrong with u Critics
    wait till 08/07/2013
    the moment specification and cost will b made public
    u guys will not have words to speak also
    its my challenge…

  • raghu

    Guys, those who are criticizing, are so much irrelevant to their point as they have forgotten that they have shown their chutiyap only paying 2 or 3 times the money for the same specs & stuff which a smart indian has bought smartly. May be all of them are ashamed of their foolishness and they want to hide it by discouraging others.
    I mean u have not gone to buy some supercomputer or jamesbond gadget, u just want a phone with specs which can satisfy ur daily needs or more than that might be satisfying ur gaming passion temporarily not a specialized phone for some mission.

    MMX ….u rock….

    Others keep on embarrassing yourselves..

  • uday

    Hey Guys I Sold A116 Hd phone and booked canvas 4 .Eagerly waiting for it.

  • uday

    Let us appreciate our Indian player MMX who is giving a tough competition for foreing brands.COz of foreign players our currency value has come down. :-(

  • Justin Case

    You are all bunch of idiots. You dont no anything about hardware and software. You think all dual/quad cores are same? LOL @ all of you. Canvas 2 was a dual core right? and other phones from HTC, Samsung were duals too with higher price. And the rubbish chinese mediatek chipset with dual cores and pvr sgx531 cant even play 1080p videos while other dual cores qualcomm snapdragon s3 in evo 3d and samsungs exyos 4210 in galaxy s2 can. Compare the framerate of HD games with other dual cores and see for yourself who wins.You think “OH WOW its quad core!!! it will play every game out there” …. Idiots the GPU is what matters more when playing games. Look at the IPAD 4 which got the best mobile GPU “POWERVR SGX 554 MP4″ —-> http://www.anandtech.com/show/6426/ipad-4-gpu-performance-analyzed-powervr-sgx-554mp4-under-the-hood
    Take a look, that dual core ipad 4 beats the crap out of all quads in graphics performance because it has best GPU.
    Micromax will never compare with the great ones like samsung and apple..

    Intel had Core 2 duo which is dual core for PC and what do you want to say? is it same dual core as the core i7 in ultrabooks ? no performance difference? Even the core 2 quad which was 1st quad cpu from intel is slower than these new dual core i7s.
    Same will go with Canvas 4. Its quad core will be nowhere near the quad cores in better expensive phones. The Gpu will be slow as usual. This was about the hardware.
    Micromax doesnot optimize the android to use the hardware power either. they just put android on it and done.
    So it lags and takes time to open apps etc.

  • Justin Case

    And you think “oh 13MP camera wow…..” and compare that to galaxy s4 and your camera shutter will LAAAAAGG and the clarity will be just shitty.
    Compare your 13 MP camera with iphone 5′s 8MP camera and you will shit in your pantsss.

  • Justin Case

    I know you all will say you are comparing canvas 4 with phone with double price. But i posted this for those who think quad core is same thing in all phones.
    You do realize that samsungs exynos OCTA is actually a quad core (only 4 cores can be used at a time) with 4 cortex a15 cores for high performance and 4 cortex a7 cores for casual use and power saving.
    And your canvas HD (and probably canvas 4 also) will use the cortex a7 which is a low performance chip.
    So you cannot compare this device to galaxy S4.
    If you think mmx offers so much at low cost, its not. Search for beidou chi k and beidou big k which are the original phones that micromax purchases from china at half the price and sells them at 2x the price in India. Beidou chi k is renamed as canvas 2 and big k is canvas hd. Micromax is ripping off your money.
    You cannot say samsung is expensive…its the right price for that powerful hardware at that time,
    Canvas 4 and HD has quad core cortex a7 and PowerVR 544 single GPU. While galaxy s4 has quad core cortex a15+a7(which offers almost 3x the performance as cortex a7) and POWER VR 544MP3 which is triple core, meaning they are simply 3 GPUs which will offer 3x the canvas 4 performance at 2x the price.

  • Justin Case

    So what i want to say is that samsung offers 3x the canvas 4 performance at 2x the price.
    Also take a look at this phone —-> http://www.gsmarena.com/motorola_atrix-3709.php
    It is a dual core with 5MP camera….compare this to canvas HD which has quad core and 8MP camera.
    So you will think quad core and 8MP will win.
    But the fact is micromax uses a cheap low quality hardware and camera which seems to good but it cant even record 1080p videos like the motorola atrix dual core and 5mp camera.

  • brian

    guys chill …If someone want to book let them book. No one is losing anything. At later if someone like the specs he/she will go ahead with the remaining payment and if someone dn’t he will cancel the order as simple as that. and thz days paying 5000 rupees is not a big deal for Indian people.

  • paris

    people on their risk so be it.. after a year there will be hell lot if lag in MMX,these phones don’t have long life…I have seen my friends phone which is canvas 2(dual core) and it is now lagging as shit compare my 3year old HTC Desire(single core) which was released way back in 2010..so MMX cannot compete with other companies. I understand they are at lesser price but for the love of god include Snapdragon chips n even if they have to hike price ..I would say xperia L is much better than canvas 4 as price difference is very less..
