There are a host of smartphones that are arriving these days under the budget segment in the market. And rightfully so with most of the surge happening in that section of the market with more and more new makers now entering the race.
While we have big name smartphones in the market as that of the Samsung and Sony, the advent of the India-based makers aren't to be taken lightly as well. One such maker is Micromax with its brand new Micromax Canvas Fire A093 offering.
The Canvas Fire A093 is yet another budget-friendly smartphone, which will rival against several KitKat flavored handsets like the Xolo Q600s, Moto E, Lava Iris X1, Swipe Konnect 5.0 and it's very own Canvas Unite 2, Canvas Engage and others.
Going through the specs of the device once more, the Canvas Fire handset features a 4-inch WVGA display. It is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor coupled with a very less RAM of 512MB.
It uses a 4GB of internal memory complemented with a microSD card slot for further memory expansion up to 32GB. Micromax Canvas Fire also comes with 5MP rear camera with LED flash, a VGA front camera, HSPA+, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS, dual-SIM support and 1750 mAh battery.
