Micromax Canvas Magnus A117 with MT6589T and 12 MP camera at Rs. 14,999

Yesterday we covered the leaks of Micromax Canvas Magnus, by MMX_Newscaster, and one day later Micromax Canvas Magnus has gone on sale at the expected price of Rs. 14,999. The phone will form a good 1.5 GHz MT6589T option at this price range which is over crowded with MT6589 Quad core processors clocked at a slightly lower frequency of 1.2 GHz.


This phone comes with a 5 inch display with 720 p HD resolution which is similar to popular phones like Micromax Canvas 4 and Micromax Canvas HD. The display will give you 294 pixels per inches and a good viewing experience.

The processor is 1.5 GHz Quad core processor MT6589T which comes with PowerVR SGX 544 MP GPU clocked at 347 MHz. The RAM capacity is 1 GB which is standard in this price range and the internal storage is 4 GB, which can be further extended to 32 GB. Micromax Canvas 4 which is available at around 1500 INR more comes with better 16 GB storage but less powerful processor.

The Camera features are pretty good with 12 MP primary camera and a 2 MP secondary camera. With most manufacturers offering 8 MP cameras, this phone stands apart from the rest in this department. As per our experience with past Micromax Camera’s, this is expected to give you good shots in proper lighting conditions.

The battery capacity is same as what we have seen in all popular phones of canvas series. The battery capacity is 2000 mAh although it is not clear as of yet if this phone will have a removable back door. Connectivity features include 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, 3.5mm audio jack and MicroUSB port.

This phone combines MT6589T chipset with 720 p HD resolution(won’t be overburdened by Full HD) and Stock Android 4.2. This combination hints at a powerful performance and we expect this phone to shine at this price range. Its main competitor will be Gionee Elife E5 which comes at a higher price range. You can buy this phone from Snapdeal for Rs. 14,999
