Going just by the looks, you can figure out what Micromax spent most of its time on. The design sports a combination of metal and plastic and looks premium compared to the recently launched Canvas Nitro A310, which is where this handset gets its internals from.
In terms of hardware we get everything one can ask for, minus the 2 GB of RAM, which is what kept things running smoothly for the Nitro. With just 1 GB of RAM and a higher asking price, we seriously doubt that the A315 will find buyers.
As for the specs, they are as follows:
- We get a 5 inch (1280 x 720 pixel) AMOLED display
- Inside, is a 1.7 GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6592 processor coupled with just 1 GB of RAM
- The memory department consists of 16 GB of internal memory that is expandable up to 32 GB via a micro SD card slot
- We get the same 13 MP AF primary camera with an LED flash and a 5 MP front facing sensor
- Also included are the usual radios like Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 along with the dual SIM functionality
- The handset runs Android KitKat 4.4 and is powered by a 2000 mAh battery, which again is a bit smaller compared to the Canvas Nitro
The Micromax Canvas 4 Plus A315 will be available in white with gold and black options and will launch in the coming weeks.
