Meanwhile, the unofficial reports also claim that Snapdeal will be exclusively selling Micromax Canvas Spark. But as of now, the availability and release date of the smartphone is not known so far, and also the specs are not revealed.
But, few reports have claimed that Canvas Spark will sport a display of around 4.3-5-inches and will be powered by a quad-core chipset, while price can be expected for around Rs 5,000 to Rs 6,000. This looks like a direct competition to Xiaomi and Huawei devices selling like hot cakes in the market.
