Micromax A72 also called the Micromax Canvas Viva A72 gets listed on the Flipkart site with a coming soon status. They have used the canvas word but there is nothing as exciting as the canvas models.

The Micromax A72 comes without dated specifications and could probably be the cheapest handset in the Canvas family. The Canvas Viva runs on the Android Gingerbread OS with 1GHz single core processor.

The handset is loaded with 256MB RAM and internal storage of 110MB. There is 3MP rear camera and a front VGA camera. The A72 is 10.6mm thick and weighs 186 grams. The screen is 5 inches with a resolution of 800×480 pixels. The 5 inch screen is definitely the plus point apart from that all other features are way outdated.

Though it’s a dual SIM handset the specs as on the flipkart website does not mention anything about 3G and GPS. The A72 could well be another  2G handset without built in 3G support.  The Li-ion battery is 2000 mAh with talktime of up to 7 hours and up to 280 hours standby time.

The price and the availability dates are not know but looking at the outdated specifications it should be priced well under Rs. 6500.
