Last week we reported about Micromax s plans to launch a new flagship device that would go up against Samsung s mighty Mega series of phablets. Now, the Canvas Doodle 2 as the phablet is known could be close to a launch. Micromax has posted a photo on Facebook that depicts a hand-drawn doodle followed by the tagline Can your imagination get bigger? and the name Canvas Doodle 2 at the top. In the comments section, the company has written that they will be launching the device in the coming weeks. Also Read - 5 delayed smartphone launches in India due to COVID-19 in May 2021
From what we know so far, the Canvas Doodle 2 will most likely be a rebadged BLU Life View and will go up against the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8. Talking of specifications, the device is likely to flaunt a 5.7-inch 720p display and will be powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT6589 processor clocked at 1.2GHz.
Other features likely to be included are 1GB of RAM, 12-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, 5-megapixel secondary camera, 16GB of expandable internal memory and a 2,600mAh battery. Connectivity-wise the device will feature dual-SIM support and on the software front, will run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean along with the various add-ons like vertical panorama in camera app, video pinning to home-screen support, Flip to mute, and Smart Pause that were introduced on the Canvas 4.
The Canvas Doodle 2 is expected to be priced at around Rs 18,000, which should give the Galaxy Mega 5.8 a run for its money as it is priced at Rs 23,000 and also lags behind in terms of specifications.
