As teased, leading India based smartphone manufacturer Micromax came up with two Windows Phone 8.1 based smartphones – Canvas Win W092 and Canvas Win W121 respectively. Both are dual SIM smartphones that come packed with decent specifications for their reasonable pricing. Take a look at the capacities of the Canvas Win W121 below.
Camera and Internal Storage
The Micromax Canvas Win W121 features impressive camera capacities for its pricing. The device is fitted with an 8 MP primary snapper that is teamed up with LED flash that can capture better snaps and videos even under low lighting conditions. Also, there is a 2 MP secondary camera onboard at the front of the handset in order to help in capturing quality selfies and in decent video calling.
Likewise its entry-level sibling, this smartphone also bundles only 8 GB of internal storage space that can be extended externally with the help of a micro SD card. It has to be noted that the vendor has not revealed the maximum limit of expandable storage supported by the handset, but we can expect it to be at least 32 GB which is common.
Processor and Battery
In terms of raw hardware, the Micromax Canvas Win W121 resembles its kin as it is equipped with the same Snapdragon 200 quad-core chipset ticking at 1.2 GHz clock speed. This processor is supplemented by 1 GB of RAM that takes charge of the multi-tasking department. The device will definitely deliver decent performance and multi-tasking with this processor and RAM combination and also falls in line with its competitors.
The battery capacity in the Canvas Win W121 is 2,000 mAh that appears to be pretty decent for a smartphone with these specifications. While the backup delivered by this battery remains unknown, it is expected to power in decent backup under moderate usage without any struggle.
Display and Features
Micromax Canvas Win W121 is given a 5 inch HD IPS display that boasts of a resolution of 1280×720 pixels. While the display size and resolution appear to be satisfactory, the IPS panel will definitely deliver superior viewing angles. Also, we cannot expect higher resolution from a smartphone in the sub Rs 10,000 price range.
Running on Windows Phone 8.1 OS, the handset features a slew of connectivity features including 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and dual SIM functionality.
From the specifications and pricing of the Micromax Canvas Win W121, we can say that the smartphone will compete with other phones such as Xolo Q1010i, Intex Aqua i5 HD, Lava Iris 504Q Plus and others.
