Micromax has launched its next Flagship device in the canvas series, dubbed as Canvas Nitro. The octa core handset, with leather finished back has been competitively priced at 12,990 INR. The handset will be available exclusively on Snapdeal.com starting now.


The IPS LCD display is 5 inches in size with 720 x 1280 pixels spread across it. There is latest Android 4.4 kitkat on board, fueled by 1.7 GHz octa core MT6592 SoC with 8 cortex A7 cores. Although, there won’t be many instances when you require all 8 to be active simultaneously, but with MediaTek’s CorePilot technology, the chipset is capable in doing so.


For efficient multi tasking, there is ample 2 GB RAM and 8 GB internal storage on board. Apps can not be transferred to MicroSD card. Rear camera has a 13 MP sensor while the front 5 MP sensor can be used for video calling.

It has a 2500 mAh battery, which is a step up from 2000 mAh units we generally see in canvas series smartphones. The new Micromax Canvas Nitro will last for 10 hours of talk time and 320 hours of standby time, which is average. Other features include WiFi, 3G, Bluetooth and GPS. There are several smart gestures which you can assign to different Apps, actions and shortcuts.

Micromax has managed to keep the price in check. Apart from Xolo 8X-1000 and 8X-1100, Canvas Nitro will also compete against the likes of Moto G and upcoming Xiaomi Redmi Note in India.

  1. Hi Deepak,

    I follow your reviews and I had a query: Is the lens of the rear camera of Canvas Nitro same as that of XOLO 8X-1100 (13 MP with Sony Exmor RS camera sensor)??

    Kindly tell, which device’s camera is better and why? (My budget is ~14000INR.)

      • Okay. Please be so kind as to do a review of XOLO 8X-1100 in the near future. I am looking to buy a phone in the price bracket of, say, 10,000-14,000INR. Please! I will be much obliged.

      • Thanks for your response,

        I am just a casual gamer.

        However, I consider myself a “music and video -enthusiast”, and a shutterbug, if you know what I mean. I do a fair bit of net-surfing, watch videos (mostly F-HD) and listen to songs almost half the free-time.

        Now, sir, since you know my budget – and if it’s not too much trouble – can you suggest a nice device for me? Please!

        I’m squarely confounded by the sheer diversity of smartphones within my range offering varieties of features and plenty of eye-catching designs.
