In the wake of growing demand for budget smartphones in India, Micromax joined rivals Xiaomi, Lenovo, and others in the fight for dominance. With the launch of Canvas Spark last month, Micromax has secured a prominent spot with incredible flash sales. The second flash sale for 50,000 units of Canvas Spark lasted for less than 5 minutes on Snapdeal. The Indian smartphone manufacturer is already preparing for its next flash sale, which will take place on 13 May.

To participate in the next flash sale, customers need to register themselves via Snapdeal. Registrations are open now, but will close at 8 pm on 12 May. This means there is ample time for those who wish to purchase the worthy budget handset by Micromax. Although registering for purchasing the Canvas Spark does not guarantee the device, it is required for one to participate in the Snapdeal-exclusive sale.
Micromax had enjoyed similar success during the first flash sale of its Canvas Spark in India, where 20,000 units sold out in less than 2 minutes. Micromax's flash sales may not compare with Lenovo or Xiaomi's sales, which last for mere seconds, it is still a great deal for the Indian handset maker to beat the competition and get in line with its rivals.
For those who are looking for an under-₹5,000 smartphone, Micromax Canvas Spark offers great value for money. It is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB expandable storage, and Android 5.0 Lollipop. The 4.7-inch display offers qHD resolution at 540x960 pixels, which is protected by Gorilla Glass 3. For those who love taking photos with their phones, an 8MP rear-facing camera with LED flash and a 2MP front snapper should be satisfied. The handset packs a 2,000mAh battery to keep it up for around 7 hours of talk-time.
Micromax Canvas Spark is a great alternative to handsets such as Xiaomi Redmi 2, Lenovo A6000 Plus, and Moto E2.
