Couple of days back, a new quad-core Micromax smartphone dubbed Canvas XL2 A109 surfaced on the company’s official website throwing light on its specifications. Now, the handset is listed for sale via online retailer Infibeam with a price tag of Rs 10,999.
Detailing on the specifications of the Micromax Canvas XL2 A109, the handset is given a large 5.5 inch capacitive touch screen IPS display panel that comes with a low qHD screen resolution packing 960×540 pixels. A quad-core MediaTek MT6592M processor ticking at 1.2 GHz powers the smartphone from within. This processor is supplemented with a Mali 400 graphics engine for handling intense graphic handling and 1 GB of RAM for smooth multi-tasking. Given the pricing of the handset, these raw hardware aspects are not something out-of-the-box and they are pretty standard among most of the mid-range offerings.
On the imaging front, the Micromax phone packs a very basic camera set that comprises of a 5 MP primary snapper paired with LED flash for a better performance even under low ambient lighting conditions. This rear camera is accompanied by a VGA front-facing snapper that can make basic video calls. Storage wise, the Canvas XL2 A109 bundles standard 4 GB of native storage capacity that can in turn be expanded externally up to 32 GB with the help of a micro SD card.
The dual SIM handset is fueled by Android 4.4 KitKat operating system and it comes packed with a standard set of connectivity features including 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS with aGPS and Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP. Also, under its hood is a 2,500 mAh battery that should be capable of pumping in a moderate backup to the Canvas XL2 A109.
Micromax has priced the handset at Rs 10,999 that is not too high, but given the specifications of the smartphone this price tag appears to be on the expensive side. The handset comes with a basic camera set, low internal storage and low screen resolution that all make the device fall short in terms of competition as the other devices in this price bracket come with better specifications as compared to this one.
