Micromax Canvas Duet AE90, which had reached Indian shores few weeks back, is now retailing on Shopcluces for 9,999 INR. The phone features Dual SIM CDMA + GSM functionality like other phone in duet series and the price does seem high considering the specifications.
According to Infibeam listing, the phone has a 4.5 Inch display with 960 x 540 pixel resolution. The resolution will be well suited considering the display size.
The processor used is 1.2 GHz Quad core chipset from yet unspecified manufacturer. RAM capacity is 1 GB and internal storage is 4 GB, which can be further extended to 32 GB using MicroSD support. The chipset is standard at this price. There are several devices like Xolo Q600s and Micromax Unite 2, which feature same or better chipset at lower price.
Imaging hardware includes 5 MP camera capable of HD video recording at the rear and a VGA front shooter for video calling. Battery capacity is 1800 mAh and the domestic manufacture claims a 5.5 hours of talk time and 150 hours of standby time, which isn’t impressive.
On the software front, Canvas Duet features dated Android 4.1 Jelly bean which is disappointing when consumers have several KitKat options available. Connectivity features include Bluetooth 3.0, GPRS, WiFi and AGPS.
Micromax Canvas Duet brings nothing new to the table and seems to be overpriced. The ShopClue price may be more than what it retails for in the next couple of weeks, but the margin won’t be wide. If you are not looking for CDMA functionality, there are better option available that will cost lesser.
