Micromax launches its new budget device, Canvas Nitro 2


Today, Micromax has launched their new budget phone, Canvas Nitro 2, Successor of Canvas Nitro. Canvas Nitro was on of the best budget phones last year. It was providing great specs at a awesome price, but the things changed. As companies like Xiaomi goes more aggressive, it was time for Micromax to gear up. Canvas 2 features a 1.7ghz octa-core mediatek processor coupled with 2 GB of RAM.


The Canvas Nitro 2 will be available across leading retail stores in India from today. The smartphone is launched with a more aggressive price tag than its predecessor, which was launched for Rs 12,999 last year.

As far as specifications are concerned, the Canvas Nitro 2 features a 5-inch HD IPS display with 720p resolution protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. It is powered by a 1.4GHz MediaTek octa-core processor paired with 2GB RAM. It offers 16GB internal memory, which is expandable up to 32GB via microSD card.


On the camera front, the Canvas Nitro 2 sports a 13-megapixel rear sensor with auto-focus and LED flash, and a 5-megapixel front-facing snapper. It packs a 2,400mAh battery that the company claims gives up to 9 hours of talktime and 250 hours of standby time. It runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat and connectivity options include dual-SIM, 3G support, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
