Amidst the hype created by Micromax Canvas Mad A94 and the upcoming Micromax Octa Core phone Micromax A350, Micromax has today launched Micromax Canvas Xl A119 which targets those who need extra large 6 inch display at a budget price. Similar to Micromax Canvas Juice, this phone will also be available exclusively from Homeshop18 for Rs. 13,990.
The phone targets those looking for some Extra large (XL) screen real estate and thus sports a 6 inch IPS LCD display with an unmatched qHD resolution which is not much considering the display size. The dismal pixel density of 183ppi implies your texts will be soft and the display won’t be as crisp.
The processor employed is 1.3 GHZ Quad core processor housed in low cost MT6582 SoC, which we have seen in budget quad core phones like Intex Aqua i6 and Gionee Pioneer P3. The processor is backed by 1 GB RAM and 4 GB (1.7 GB at userend) internal storage which is pretty standard considering price range.
The Primary camera of is of 8 MP (the maximum MT6582 can support) and enjoys LED flash support. The front camera features a 5 MP sensor and can be used for self portraits and video calls. On the software front you will get Android 4.2 jelly bean operating system.
The battery capacity is 2450mAh and this will give you 9.5 hours of talk time which is decent. We expect the video playback time to be average considering the large display size. Connectivity features include 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth with A2DP and GPS with aGPS support.
Large displays are becoming more and more popular by the day and Micromax Canvas Xl is meant to deliver on that note. The display is large in size but not a very sharp one, other specs are standard. Micromax Canvas Doodle 2 will offer you almost similar specs and Stylus functionality in the same price range only if you can settle for a slightly smaller but sharper display instead. If this phone seems slightly overpriced to you, Homeshop18 is offering free goodies worth Rs. 6,498 to compensate for the same.
