Dishing out a mini version of high-end smartphone seems to have become a common trend these days.
Though the trend is yet to be embrace by our domestic vendors; however, Micromax has shown an interest in launching a mini-version of its flagship Android-based handset.
Well, the much talked about mini version of Canvas Turbo A250 is all set to be launched soon in India.
While the original Canvas Turbo A250 met with mixed reactions from critics, but the upcoming Canvas Turbo Mini A200 could become a popular choice considering it will cost just Rs. 14,490. Sounds great, isn't it?
If you follow the news, you might have heard about a mini version of Canvas Turbo A250 will likely to be announced soon. Since the phone has been listed on a popular shopping website, therefore, the retail availability is also not far way. Micromax hasn't announced the Canvas Turbo Mini A200 in the Indian market yet.
Anyways, the soon-to-be launched handset might be made out of metallic body; though, we're not sure about this very rumor.
Coming back to its specs sheet, the Canvas Turbo Mini A200 will arrive with a 4.69-inch IPS display having a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels.
Unlike the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, which has a 4.3-inch qHD screen, the Micromax Canvas Turbo Mini A200 comes with fairly large HD resolution capable display. Further, the handsome handset features a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, most likely to be MediaTek powered, coupled with 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory, and an expandable storage up to 32GB via a microSD card slot.
On the camera front, you'll find an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with an LED Flash, and a 5-megapixel shooter on the front. Other connectivity features include: 3G, Wi-Fi, Dual SIM, Bluetooth, USB 2.0, FM Radio, and A-GPS, amongst other likable features.
The Canvas Turbo Mini A200 is powered by Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box. Earlier there were reports floating on the web that Micromax might be preparing Android 4.4 Kitkat update for its Canvas range of handsets.
Additionally, the success of mini variant of Canvas Turbo A250 is largely dependent on its retail price. The mid-range Android-powered handset has become a tough market to crack. No more domestic vendors have an upper market in this very segment.
High-profile handset manufactures like Samsung, HTC, Sony, LG, Gionee are looking forward to crush their so-called "Made in India" opponents with unique offerings. For instance, Samsung has waved off Rs. 5,000 on the Galaxy S4 Mini under new exchange scheme. Now you can exchange your old working phone, and buy a Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini for Rs. 18,500.
