Reliance Jio's free 4G data offering has the Indian mobile users all pumped up and the mobile data usage has shot through the roof. In order to take full advantage of Jio's free data and calls, users must have a 4G smartphone with VoLTE support. Owing to that demand, Micromax just unveiled its latest budget smartphone, Canvas Spark 4G, to answer your needs.
Micromax Canvas Spark 4G is available exclusively on Snapdeal for Rs. 4,999 in the good-old flash sale format. Registrations for the first flash sale, which is to be held on November 10 at 12 noon, are already open on the site. With this smartphone, users can use their existing Jio 4G SIM or even get a new one with unlimited 4G Jio Preview Offer.
In terms of specifications, the Canvas Spark 4G is quite a steal. It is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 1GB RAM and offers 8GB onboard storage. The handset features a 5-inch IPS display with Corning Gorilla Glass protection and a metal back cover.
The Canvas Spark 4G has a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash and a 2MP front snapper. It runs Android Marshmallow out-of-the-box and includes Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and microUSB port for connectivity.
With its price tag and specs, the Canvas Spark 4G competes against the likes of Xolo Era 1X, LYF Wind 5, Intex Aqua Strong 5.1 and others. There are plenty of smartphones if buyers wish to spend more than Rs. 5,000, but the Canvas Spark 4G serves the purpose for those who are looking for a secondary phone with much-needed features or someone with a budget.
Micromax's Canvas Spark series has been quite popular among Indians. The first-gen Canvas Spark sold like hot cupcakes in series of flash sales, but the company has since expanded the series with Canvas Spark 2, Canvas Spark 3 and Canvas Spark 2 Plus.
