Micromax’s Canvas Selfie range adds two new smartphones, the Canvas Selfie 2 and Canvas selfie 3, to entice selfie lovers. The Canvas Selfie 2 has a 5MP front camera with OmniVision sensor and 4P lens, and the Canvas Selfie 3 comes with an 8MP front camera with Sony MX179 sensor, wide angle lens and LED flash.
These new phones try to extend the Canvas Selfie success formula to a significantly lower budget price. The front camera sensors are placed at the centre, just above the display, but seem a lot less assertive than the eye like 13MP shooter in original Canvas Selfie.
Micromax CEO Vineet Taneja justifies the significance and existential purpos of Canvas Selfie line as follows:
“With over 93 million selfies being captured every day, people today take and retake pictures of themselves until it mirrors perfection and what they want the world to see them as. Keeping this in mind, we have created our Canvas Selfie range which has received tremendous response from our young consumers with Canvas Selfie. Taking the selfie craze to the next level, we are proud to announce the two new smartphones which are ideal for the users delivering fantastic images and equipping them with great beauty editing tools to look their best always.”
