It’s not been long since I predicted the future of the bezel-less smartphones. Right after LG came up with a budget oriented, 18:9 aspect ratio bragging, bezel shy of a smartphone, other manufacturers are trying to nail the current state of the smartphone market. It is certainly not going to take the companies too long to bring with their versions of the bezel-less Infinity smartphones now.
Talking about bezel-less smartphones, Micromax has recently launched the Micromax Canvas Infinity which is, so far, the cheapest smartphone which has joined the roster.
While the Canvas Infinity won’t be considered as a true bezel-less smartphone, there is not much to complain about considering the price point the company has brought the phone at.
The device is available as an Amazon Exclusive at an amazing price of INR 9,999 if you want to purchase it in India
Micromax Canvas Infinity: Full Phone Specifications
Considering the price, the specifications seem to be quite fitting. The phone can’t be considered a beast by any sense, but it would certainly get the job done. The Snapdragon 425 chipset is, by far, the only thing which, I feel, could be a matter of concern for some considering it is just a Quad Core chipset. The presence of a fingerprint scanner is a welcome edition to the budget bezel-less class (LG Q6, how I wish you had one too).
The prime highlight of the device is its display. The Canvas Infinity offers a 5.7in Full Vision Display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The 2.5D Cover glass makes the Canvas Infinity a stunner of a smartphone as far as the front of the device is concerned. The device is still not completely free of the bezels on the head and the chin, but this is the probably the best the company could have managed to bring out while maintaining the 10K price frame.
Camera is one more area Micromax has managed to draw the attention of everyone at. There is a long list of features the camera UI of the Canvas Infinity offers. We get a 16MP selfie camera with an f/2.0 aperture and a 13MP primary camera. Both the cameras offer crisp images and won’t disappoint the user in any way possible.
There are features which include, but are not limited to panorama mode, beauty mode, pro mode, slo-mo, and a lot more which will definitely attract photography lovers.
Truth be told, the camera interface looks, more or less, an iOS doppelganger. But again, copying something good is never a bad idea. As a matter of fact, the entire UI of the Canvas Infinity looks a lot like an iOSish skin on top of Android.
There is no turbo charge support, there is nothing extra ordinary when it comes to the battery here. Micromax has tried to go old school here with a removable battery. The 2,900 mAh battery would get the job done considering the device comes with just an HD Display.
There is 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage which can be expanded up to 128 GB with an external SD card. So far, there is just one variant of the device which has been announced, but the rumored Canvas Infinity Plus might also make its way soon. If you are looking out for more RAM and space, you might want to wait it out for a while to get the higher end variant of the device.
Micromax Canvas Infinity: Final Verdict
There is a long list of smartphones at the price range the Canvas Infinity is being offered. The fact that the device offers a bezel-less display certainly goes in its favor. Micromax has finally come up with a real value for money smartphone after so long. You can go for the device without thinking twice.
