Micromax these days seem to be choosing to keep a low profile while announcing its new phones. After the recently reported Micromax Ninja A91 being spotted selling on an e-commerce portal, we now have the Micromax A72 Canvas Viva, which surfaced on Snapdeal. The phone is a part of the popular Canvas series which included phones like Canvas HD A116 and Canvas 2 A110.

Like all the previous models in the Canvas series, this phone also fall in the wide screen range of phones and carries a 5-inch capacitive touchscreen with 480×800 pixels resolution. Under the hood is a 1GHz single-core processor and Android 2.3 Gingerbread, which looks pretty old fashioned especially knowing that the recent Canvas phones feature Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Also, the phone does not support 3G, which is again a letdown.
The Canvas Viva A72 measures 142.8x76x10.6mm and weighs 186g. Other features in the phone include a 3-megapixel rear camera and a 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera, support for Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and microUSB, and 256MB RAM, 110MB internal memory and up to 32GB of expandable memory with microSD. It also has a 2000mAh battery, which offers 7 hours of talk time and 280 hours of standby time.
The Micromax A72 Canvas Viva is not as equipped as other members in the series; however it is the cheapest amongst all. It is available for Rs 6,999 on Snapdeal, which claims to deliver it in two days from purchase.
