Micromax Facebook page now shows the Micromax Canvas 4 as the next model they are going to release – PreBooking starting from 28th June. MMX has not disclosed any other information or the price.

The Canvas 4 Specifications are not yet unveiled and the image that Micromax has used is from a side view – one can hardly make out anything, a smart move to keep the suspense rolling. Probably they will unveil more details before 28th June that’s when the pre-booking starts.

I believe there are two possibilities.

  1. Micromax Canvas 4 may come with Full HD screen with all the usual specs and powered by MT6589 quad core hardware, and probably with 13MP camera. So in all it will be the same thing as on the Micromax A116 with may be FHD resolution, higher resolution camera, internal storage space (8 / 16GB) / RAM 1 / 2GB and probably some better screen protection.
  2. The other option is the Canvas 4 with MT6589T processor clocked at 1.5GHz or something new, more powerful with higher specs as needed.

If you were to look at the price factor in scenario 1 it could be well under Rs. 15K and for scenario 2 probably between 15 to 20K.

Micromax had recently reduced the price of A116 to around 13K, a strong indication that it could be the same MT6589 with higher specifications (scenario 1). They keep the A116 at a safer (price) distance and bring in something for the price or around 15K.

Well nothing more from Micromax yet, and everyone is speculating. We will have to wait for official confirmation until then.. CAN this… or will this be your next mobile?

Micromax canvas 4 coming soon

    Micromax Canvas 4 A117 (Dubbed As A120 Canvas Pro HD)

  5. I wonder why they don’t use superamoled displays in there phones!! Giants like samsung and htc give superamoled display in phones in around 13-15k handsets too…

    1. Neeraj, can you give me one example from these so called GIANTS having Superamoled display & with a price tag below 15k?

      1. I know. Samsung will never provide amoled display even on their 22k priced device.

  6. Bros….get ready for being looted by mmx….price lies between 23000-25000…..ive heard some trusty news abt that and cam is 13mp….there is a chance of octa core cpu

  7. It will be so very dissapointing if it has to come with the 1.2 ghz of mt6589 instead of the 1.5 ghz turbo version. Won’t pay 17k for this only.
    Having said that, only the 16gb inbuilt memory and gorilla glass 2 are good additions

  8. Canvas 4 has a hardware home button MMX fb page has new pic of canvas 4 So its not not Blue life one after all what are your thoughts Mr. Gogi

    1. Pankaj, until and unless we don’t hear anything from Micromax officially, everything that you see or hear is rumors.

    2. If its not frm blu…then its other rebranded phn….they l surely rebrand but not manufacture own one….but this will lead to decrease of rates of branded phns…thnx mmx

  9. Dear Golgi
    I m using MMX a116 and want to shift download ed app n games to external SD card. How can I do this.

    1. Get your phone updated to Jelly Bean 4.2 from Service centre of Micromax. You will be able to move your apps to external SD card then.

    2. get some app saver application for stores. using this you can get .apk and store the apk file where ever u want.

  10. Hi Gogi, one simple question (doubt)

    Are there any MT6589T based phone from Indian based brand? (By the words ‘Indian based’, I mean the after sales support and not the origin)

  11. Hi Gogi Sir,
    I m big fan of your’s

    I am facing a problem with my micromax canvas HD ibought it few days back and from tomorrow
    my phone suddenly blinked and the black color in the display wiped out totally,
    and display goes green and it continued for sometime in meanwhile,I switched off it and restarted many times
    then slowly slowly the black color again appear in display

    Plz Plz Plz Sir provide me solution.

    Thanks in advance.

    1. Parit, take it to service centre or if you have just bought it (less than 7 days) you should get immediate replacement.

      1. Hi Gogi,

        Can you confirm which phone would you suggests MMX A116 or Wammy titan 2 both now costing 13k with same hardware specification

        1. Chirag, Titan 2 is with qHD resolution and A116 with HD resolution. MMX has updated the OS to 4.2 and you can save apps on external storage. Looking at this A116 seems a better option.

  12. canvas 4 is the renamed phone of BLU LIFE ONE phone….you can google it and can easily find the similarities.. i guess this blu is fav of micromax…
    every phone in the past say a90s, a110 ,a116 all are from the same bag i.e BLU..
    but one thing these phones are good these are not chinese kind..its the most fast emerging brand in the us…

  13. Canvas hd a116 rom can flash with SAMSUNG S3 ROM and JELLY XPERIA . For more details.. Link with xda.developers

  14. It wil b better if it come with a sound enhancement,
    8gb internal memory (dont bothr about moving apps to external card) ,
    2 gb ram,
    1.5ghz or greater
    13mp camera with bsi sensor and improved led flash,
    price tag of 16-17k

  15. hi sir.
    I have canvas HD and I am getting problem that whenever I put my HD on charging it’s touch becomes pathetic …
    plzz gogi help me out..
    and also taking too time to send msg on we chat .I m on 3g be network…

    1. Sushant, its common issues, try charging from other point say office / friends house or try a different changer. This is not an issue with the handset.

      1. Yes, I agree with you…
        I faced this in my friend room but not in my home and office

        1. I have 2 chargers ………
          When i charge with 1 the touch has problems while charging ………
          The touch is fine when I use the other charger….

    2. I have A110 and my brother has A116, he is facing similar issue if he uses A110’s charger for charging A116. Check if you are using correct charger.

  16. I am sure the specs must be similar to iball 4.7 cobalt except screen size.

    1. Lets wait for official confirmation. I don’t think octa core is any where near but lets see.

  17. Can life be endless : Does this indicate battery life ??
    Micromax can surprise us with super amoled display as well.

    1. canvas 4 will feature metallic body and corning gorilla glass 2 protection …. that’s why its saying can life be endless … battery will be somewhat near to 2000mah only

  18. gogi various sites are claiming that the price is going to be well above 20k (around 25k) do you think that the price is going to be such high if yes then will this phone be a hit I seriously doubt it

    1. Sayan, for a brand like Micromax over 20K will be a disaster, under 20K is good, under 15K is a safe bet.

  19. The Micromax Canvas 4 is surely going to be an advanced version of the Micromax A116 Canvas HD and that too with a minimal price difference. For a quick comparison between the two I collected resources from the below sites.


    (Micromax Canvas 4)

    (Micromax A116 Canvas HD)

    The statistics says:


    Both Micromax A116 Canvas HD and Canvas 4 is going to have 5.0 inch display but the Canvas HD has IPS LCD capacitive Touch screen offering 720 x 1280 pixels Resolution whereas the upcoming Canvas 4 will have Full HD touch screen offering 1920 x 1080p Display resolution.

    Operating platform:

    Micromax Canvas HD has 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7 Quad-core Processor with 1 GB RAM whereas the Canvas 4 is expected to have the Mediatek 6589 chipset (Quad core) with 2 GB RAM.

    Micromax Canvas HD comes with 8 MP Rear Camera and 2 MP Front Camera whereas the Canvas 4 is expected to have 13 MP Rear Camera and 2-5 MP Front Camera.
    Micromax Canvas HD has 4 GB internal memory but the upcoming Canvas 4 is expected to have 8-16 GB internal memory.
    The price of Canvas HD in India is Rs 14,149 where as the Canvas 4 too is expected to be with a tag of 15 – 17 K which is a minimal difference as compare to the amazing features. The Canvas 4 is surely a worthy reason to wait for me and I hope for everyone else too.

    1. Nice comparison..i was planning to buy a new phone but i think i should wait now. Thanks for it.

  20. Gogi Sir,

    Someone has revealed the specs. Same site I shared last time. i2addicted.com/news/exclusive-micromax-canvas-4-specs-leaked/2013/06/17/

    But sir I’m still waiting for a reply on which phone to buy for Rs 15,000. Please sir.

  21. Guys see the blu life one pictures in gsmarena it is identical to so called canvas 4.

  22. shipment of a116 began at march end and you used it for 6 months …. Bhaiya ghadi ke cell badal lo !!!

  23. I think only the processor & screen resolution will change the specification should be same as Canvas HD

  24. Now there is a news coming that karbon mobile is launching titanium S6 with full HD screen to take on MMX S4.

  25. Gogi! Karbonn to launch Titanium S6 with 1080p Against Canvas 4 in July, Whats Your Take On this ?

  26. Karbonn Titanium S6 coming in july with 5 inch Full HD display & qualcomm snapdragon processor …………..

  27. You already have UMI X2 Fully HD 32GB Storage 2 GB RAM Gorilla Glass 2, 13 MP BSI Sensor with MTK 6589 clocked at 1.5 GHz Quad Core Processor @ 16,000/- available in India.

    What is point to buy similar or inferior spec Micromax phone @ 25,000/-

    Micromax still don’t deserve 25,000/- price tag.

    I personally used MMX Canvas 116 for 6 months and then sold it and purchased Samsung Grand.

    I am extremely happy with Grand for Six reasons

    1. TRUE 8 MP Camera (BSI Sensor with Zero shutter Lag) with Full HD Video, great image and video quality
    2. High Power LED Flash; It can even good for Group Photo
    3. GLONASS (GPS Locks in less than 3 Seconds…and yes always TRUE and accurate GPS positioning)
    4. Excellent Display (even with low resolution…no Pixelation), crisp and clear text.
    5. Extremely useful Touch Wiz UI and Samsung Apps like mServices (Free Live TV Channels, Movies, Songs, Radio and Education stuff)
    6. Good build Quality (as compared to MMX) with premium look and Brand Value

    There are only two disadvantages.

    1. VideoCore GPU; Not all high end games support this GPU, so if you are heavy gammer then this is not the phone for you.
    2. 4 GB Internal Storage with No option to install APPS in SD Card; So bad news for 1 GB plus Games Apps Lovers., but still 4 GB is more than enough for normal users, I have installed more than 100 apps and still 2Gb Internal Storage is free.

    MTK Processor has poor GPS performance (even 6589 processor)

    1. Wow! You used MMX A116 which was launched on Feb 14th for 6 months?!! I guess you’re a Sammy guy,aren’t you?

      1. Very well said Akhil, TechG is definetely samsung guy, coz he is the only person who think Grand is better than MMX A116…

  28. updated!

  29. Hi Gogi,

    I am facing a problem with micromax canvas 2 a110 from today morning.
    When try to unlock the mobile suddenly it blinked in pink color and it continued, then I switched off it and restarted.Now it is working very slow.
    Perfomance is very low.It is taking 10 seconds to show menu.

    Please provide me solution.

    Thanks in advance.

    1. Shekar, remove the micro SD card if you have and see. May be a factory reset could solve the issue you can try that too. Last option to visit the service centre.

  30. updated!

  31. Hello Gogi sir,
    My budget is 17k, please suggest an Android phone or tablet(with inbuilt 3g), with good battery backup, decent camera, good amount of RAM(min 1 GB with decent amount of free RAM), good screen(resolution and ppi), good in call speakers and most importantly – install on SD card facility.
    Will wait for you reply.

  32. As always biggest discussion over canvas in whole internet is here at Gogi’s 🙂
