Micromax is back with a phone that will easily match the features of the high end devices from Samsung or others.
Micromax Mobile has launched its Canvas 4 aka (210) mobile phone recently with some of the innovative smarter software features.the mobile phone shares the same hardware configuration with its predecessor Canvas HD. But the mobile phone draws attention towards itself due to its never seen software features in mobile phones including those , manufactured by the big names -Apple, Samsung ,HTC even.

Hardware Configuration:

Earlier there were rumors that Canvas 4 will come with same specifications as Samsung Galaxy S4 , but it came with same as that of its predecessor Canvas HD.
The Canvas 4 (aka A210) has a 5.0-inch, 1280 x 720 ‘TRU-HD’ IPS panel, a MediaTek MT6589 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 13 megapixel rear camera, 5 megapixel front camera, dual SIM, dual standby functionality, expandable memory up to 32 GB, flip cover option, 2,000mAh battery and Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean.

Design and build

The new canvas aluminium body with coating treatment gives it sturdy feel. The chamfered edges feel much better than the seams of Micromax’s previous plastic panels. The back of the phone is removable and the highly glossy look is disappointing, because somewhere between the aluminium and the glossy back, this one turned out ‘loud’ and shiny.But the weight is little more than its competitors models - HTC and Samsung.

But this is not the point which sets it apart in smartphones crowd , but its software features which makes it smarter choice. We are presenting here some of the cool innovative and unique features of the gadgets:

Blow to Unlock:

Micromax Canvas 4 offers an innovative way to unlock the smartphone. Just blow a kiss to your phone to unlock it, Yes its true. This is an all new type of gesture. Now just blow air on the screen of the Canvas 4 to unlock the phone, without ever swiping your fingers on the screen. The other alternative is to ‘shake’ the phone to unlock it.

Vertical Panorama Shots:
So this is the feature which makes me excited a lot. Unlike the horizontal panorama shots this smartphone also enables user to take vertical panorama shot. So be ready now to take full pose of tall building and monuments  with this feature

While panorama shots are usually taken horizontally, Micromax gives a different approach to this feature. In Canvas 4, you can move your device from top to bottom, instead of left to right, to take a panorama shot of tall objects in a single frame.

Video Pinning:

This feature allows users to play the video in a small pop-up window on the homescreen & multitask seamlessly between applications. Swipe/drag various applications on to the screen, without missing even a moment of your video.

Video Preview:

Micromax Canvas 4 allows you to check out a short preview of a without pausing the video being watched.

Look Away Feature:

Comes straight from the Samsung GS4. Look away feature pauses a video being played as soon as you look away from the screen, and resumes play when the user looks back at the screen.

Smart Gestures:

Users can simply flip the phone and make the screen face down to turn the device to silent mode. You can also turn the phone down during a call and it automatically switches to loudspeaker mode.

Touch-enabled Flip Cover:

Among the accessories of Canvas 4 is the flip cover that features Surface Touch technology. This technology allows you to use the screen of the phone even when it is covered by the cover. Micromax says that touchscreen is optimised for use even while wearing gloves.


Answer a call by bringing the Canvas 4 close to your ear. And also select a contact & bring the Canvas 4 close to your ear to dial.

Micromax M! Power:

M!Power is a Micromax service, wherein the company will back up all the data in your Canvas 4, including contacts, SMSs, photos, documents and videos. Under this service, you will also get a temporary phone for a period of seven days if your handset is stolen and get your sim card blocked with one call.

This service is not limited to just the phone, but also extends to your wallet. In case you lose your wallet, you can ask Micromax to block credit, debit and prepaid cards. The company will even get you a replacement PAN card and driving licence if you opt for M!Power.

OTA Update:

Unlike the older Micromax smartphones, the Canvas 4 will support OTA (over the air) updates. Now it will be easy for users to download and install new firmware and software upgrades in the future without going to Micromax service centers.

Micromax is available in India with a price tag of 17999/-
