Last month, a new Micromax device called the Canvas Magnus A117 was listed on a few Indian e-commerce sites ahead of an official announcement by the company. Now the Indian smartphone vendor has put up the device on its website and is selling it on its store with a price tag of Rs 14,999.
To recap on the specifications, the Canvas Magnus A117 flaunts a 5-inch IPS HD (1280×720 pixels) display and is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core MT6589T processor paired with 1GB of RAM. Other features included are a 12-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, 2-megapixel front camera, 4GB of internal storage that can be expanded to up to 32GB using a microSD card and a 2,000mAh battery.
Connectivity options include dual-SIM card slots, 3G support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS/AGPS and on the software front, the device runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. With a price tag of Rs 14,999 the Canvas Magnus A117 is likely to face some competition from the likes of Zen Amaze Ultrafone 701 FHD, Xolo Play T1000 and Wammy Passion Z+ among others.
