Come Monday and Micromax Canvas 4 will be launched in a New Delhi event. The company is leaving no stones unturned to make sure Canvas 4 A210 gets bumper opening.
Starting this week, retailers are already using the model name Micromax Canvas A210, for the upcoming handset. But is it legitimate to use A210, when there is no proof available at the moment.Well, now GizBot has a solid proof in hand to prove that A210 is the official name of Micromax Canvas 4.
The company has accidentally revealed official model no i.e. A210 on its website a day before July 8. If you visit Micromaxinfo.com/support, it is clearly visible that indeed A210 is the official model no . However, the internal specifications are still to be confirmed.
Selling a mobile phone is no different from promoting Bollywood films. In the earlier days, a device was not promoted before its launch. Now these tech vendors take advantage of social medium and in advance promote their phone. The Canvas 4 is yet to be launched in India, but its pre-hype is phenomenal largely due to online media.
Every second day, the folks over at Micromax post some wacky one-liner on their Facebook account to create buzz around Canvas 4. It is a debatable topic to an extent whether these pre-hype promotions really create demand for an upcoming product. Surely these promotions do help in getting maximum hits on YouTube or maximum likes on Facebook.
Yesterday, Micromax informed that you can watch live unveiling of Canvas 4. Earlier any launch event was limited to media. Now tech vendors are becoming open in nature. They want consumers to spread the achievements of their brand among family and friends. From Apple to Samsung to Micromax, no one can forget that because of their users they made it large.
One can see the aggressiveness in Micromax over its forthcoming Canvas 4. Within few years, the company climbed the ladder and managed to kick off few well known players in the tech world. After the successful launch of Canvas HD in India, Micromax touched greater heights. It is now being compared with likes of Samsung, which is not a small recognition.
Well, Canvas 4 is said to get official tomorrow and we'll cover the event live for you. GizBot handpicked top five rumors surrounding the launch of Micromax Canvas 4 A210. Take a look!
