Update: 23/10/13 Micromax Canvas Magnus is available for purchase on snapdeal for Rs. 14,999.
Another phone from Micromax, Canvas Magnus A117, has been unveiled by the trusted leak source for Micromax Mobiles, MMX_Newscaster. Micromax Canvas Magnus A117 sports a 5 inch display like other popular phones in the Canvas Series and bears similar specifications.
This phone is powered by a 1.5 GHz quad core processor which is most probably MT6589T. This is the only noticeable change in hardware with the popular Canvas HD considering the leaked specs. The Canvas Magnus comes with 1 GB RAM and 4 GB internal storage.
The Display of this phone is 5 inches in size and sports 720P HD resolution similar to Canvas HD and Canvas 4. The pixel density will be 294 ppi which is pretty good.
The primary camera is of 12 MP similar to Micromax Canvas Doodle 2 and the front camera is of 2 MP. On the software front this phone will feature Android 4.2 Jelly bean.
The battery capacity is 2000 mAh similar to most phones in Canvas series and will give you one day of moderate usage. We can see a chrome band around the edges and doodle 2 like back cover. The back cover of this device might be non removable as well.
Micromax Roped in Hugh Jackman as its brand ambassador recently, a move which created ripples across the internet. The differentiating feature in this phone is the 1.5 GHz processor and most probably it will be priced somewhere between Canvas HD and Canvas 4 which will make it a good option at around 15,000 INR. We expect this device to be launched soon even before Micromax Canvas Turbo.
