The Micromax Canvas 2 Colors A120 is the first smartphone in the company’s portfolio to give users a degree of customization. With swappable back panels, users can buy the device along with extra colored panels including Radiant Red, Vibrant Yellow, Splendid Green and Mystic Blue. This would make Micromax local brand to offer swappable back covers. So far only Motorola offers this kind of customization, while Panasonic too is expected to offer the same feature on its forthcoming P81.

DISPLAY – The device flaunts a 5-inch IPS HD display with a resolution of 1280×720 pixels. At this price point it is good to see companies offer HD displays, where most only offer qHD resolution displays.
PROCESSOR – The device is powered by a MediaTek MT6582 quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz and paired with 1GB of RAM. This should mean there is enough power to run most of the apps and services smoothly.
STORAGE – There is 4GB of internal storage in hand, which can be further expanded up to 32GB using a microSD card.
BATTERY – Micromax has offered a 2,000mAh battery, which it claims is good enough to survive more than seven hours of talktime and over 225 hours on standby mode.
CAMERAS – At the back is an 8-megapixel camera with Auto Focus and LED flash, which is capable of recording videos at 720p. This rear snapper is supplemented with a 2-megapixel front-facing camera with Fixed Focus.
