It is going to be an Amazon Exclusive and will start selling from 1 September.
Price and availability in IndiaThe Micromax Canvas Infinity is priced at a Micromax special-cost of Rs 9,999 and will be only available on Amazon India website for the initial phase. With an incredible 5.7-inch 18:9 display and 16-megapixel camera setup, the Micromax Canvas Infinity is exclusively available on Amazon India and will be available for offline retailing on the later date. While most smartphones come with 16:9 aspect ratio, 18:9 gives more real estate to the screen, rendering a near bezel-less look and feel.
The Canvas Infinity boasts a 16-megapixel front facing camera with f/2.0 aperture.
The phone's connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS, AGPS, and OTG support (up to 64GB). A 2900mAh battery powers the device.
Samsung smart speaker reportedly on the way
DJ Koh, the president of Samsung's mobile division, told CNBC on Wednesday that the company is working on a smart speaker . Samsung has expanded availability of its voice assistant Bixby's voice capabilities to more than 200 countries globally.
While the other details about the Canvas Infinity are not known, it is believed to be a high-end device with a Qualcomm processor operating under its hood.
Micromax Canvas Infinity runs on Android 7 Nougat, upgradable to Android 8 Oreo.
"With an 18:9 display, Canvas Infinity is the only smartphone to offer this technology at this price point. With Micromax Canvas Infinity, we are focusing on bringing the best in class display experience with an all-rounder device that packs in the best of everything". On the rear, the smartphone sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture.
During the launching event, Micromax has announced a 24-hour service with a promise to fix or replace the device in a stipulated time frame. It comes with Fingerprint sensor on its back side. This makes for an excellent-looking smartphone at the front; one that appears to be all screen, particularly when you use a wallpaper with a black background on the phone. It is packed with 2900 mAh battery that claims to offer 260 hours of stand by time, 11 hours of talk time and 24 hours of music playback. They've also touted this as a gaming device, but with a Snapdragon 425, it may not go far in that department.
