One of the popular Indian OEMs Micromax had launched its most latest mid-range Android smartphone the Canvas Doodle 3 last month. The handset was not received well in the native market due to some of the specs that were not up to the mark at the given price.
If you are not aware, Micromax Canvas Doodle 3 hit the shelves in India late April at Rs 8,500. The device then was released with a very low 512 MB of RAM, which was possibly one of the major factor for the failure of the handset in the market.
Now one of the most popular online sites Flipkart has listed the same Micromax Canvas Doodle 3 for sale at Rs. 8,778. This is a bit improved version of the handset s the company has in fact offered 1GB of RAM in it.
However, other specs of the Canvas Doodle 3 remains same. If you are not aware of the specs, the Canvas Doodle 3 comes with a massive 6-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display that supports FWVGA (854 x 480 pixels) resolution.
It is powered by a 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6572 dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM instead of 512MB. The smartphone is still powered by Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system. There is no change here as well. The company should have offered a newer version of Android OS at least.
The affordable Micromax Canvas Doodle 3 sports a 5-megapixel read camera with autofocus, LED flash and HD (720p) recording capability and at the front you will also see a VGA shooter.
It houses 4GB of internal memory which can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD card. Connectivity options offered in the handset are 3G HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS with A-GPS support. And obviously it is a dual-SIM handset.
The Canvas Doodle 3 with 1GB of RAM is powered by a 2500 mAh battery, which should provide up to 260 hours of standby time or up to 9 hours of talk time.
The handset will have a tough time with Motorola's Moto E in the same ground. Moreover, even the price of the Micromax Canvas Doodle 3 is not as sensible as the Moto E's. Not only that but at the same time, the revised version of the Canvas Doodle 3 will also clash with the company's recently launched Unite 2 and Canvas Engage handsets along with Lava Iris X1.
