Micromax on Tuesday launched its new smartphone, Canvas Infinity, in India. Priced at Rs 9,999, the smartphone will be initially available via Amazon India before rolling out to the offline stores . Registration for the smartphone begins today while sale starts on September 1. The highlight of the smartphone is its 18:9 display aspect ratio: something we’ve seen on the flagship smartphones such as the LG G6 and Samsung Galaxy S8.

Micromax Canvas Infinity vs Coolpad Cool Play 6 (Comparison):
Micromax Canvas Infinity will be competing against the Coolpad Cool Play 6 and Xiaomi Redmi Note 4. Priced at Rs 14,999, the Coolpad Cool Play 6 comes with 5.5-inch full HD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 processor with Adreno 510 GPU, 6GB of RAM, and 4,000mAh battery. The top-end model of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is priced at Rs 12,999. It features Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, 4,000mAh battery, 4GB of RAM and 5.5-inch full HD display.
Micromax Infinity vs LG Q6:
LG had recently launched a Rs 14,990 smartphone, LG Q6, with 18:9 aspect ratio. 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. So, in this way, if we talk about price, I guess undoubtly. Micromax Infinity would win by a bigger margin as the smartphone has decent specifications under low budget.
According to me,
The phone comes within Rs.9999/- which is not at all costly and even the specifications is cheaper. So you can afford this smartphone. If you're planning to buy a smartphone within 8-9k, then you should increase your budget and get a bit higher.
If you're looking for a camera smartphone, then don't forget, Micromax Canvas Infinity has 16MP front camera with f 1/2.0 aperture. So camera is successful.
Overall, it is a must buy smartphone with decent specifications.
In a day or two, I would review this smartphone and bit more serious about Canvas Infinity. However, i strongly recommend everyone for this smartphone.
