Micromax Canvas 4 Plus A315, images and specs of which leaked today morning is now officially retailing on Infibeam for more than expected price of 17,499 INR. We expect the smartphone to retail for a lower price once it is listed on official website and other ecommerce stores.
The specifications are similar to Canvas Nitro A310 which is selling for a far lesser price of 12,600 INR and the two phones are primarily differentiated by their Display technology being used. With Canvas 4 Plus, Micromax is using AMOLED display, which is characterized by excellent darks and over saturated colors.
The 5 inch AMOLED display has 720p HD resolution amounting to 293 ppi and will be well suited for those who enjoy watching videos on their smartphones. Since each pixel is fired individually (unlike LCD displays which have a backlight) you can save some battery by keeping a dark background as wallpaper.
The processor is same MT6592 true octa core SoC clocked at 1.7 GHz and surprisingly the RAM capacity is only 1 GB. This doesn’t make much sense because Canvas Nitro is offering double 2 GB RAM, an important performance parameter.
Imaging hardware remains same with 13 MP rear/ 5 MP front camera combination and the internal storage has been bumped up to 16 GB. Canvas 4 Plus also supports up to 32 GB MicroSD storage.
Software is Android 4.4.2 KitKat and the customizations which we saw on Canvas Nitro are present on Canvas 4 Plus as well. You can swipe to the left most home screen for blink feed like updates, Icons have been customized and you can also define custom gestures or use pre-installed ones.
The battery capacity has also been trimmed down to 2000 mAh and Micromax claims a talktime of up to 7 hours and standby time of 205 hours. If you aren’t particularly charmed by an AMOLED panel, Canvas Nitro selling for a lower price tag with better 2500 mAh battery and 2 GB RAM will serve you better.
