Home-bred consumer electronics major Micromax has launched a budget 3G slate dubbed as Canvas Tab P480 in India.
Tab P480 is said to be the successor of Canvas Tab P470, which was launched in December 2014. The new model, which is just four months younger than its predecessor, comes with two major upgrades in CPU and front-camera department, but its battery capacity has been downgraded by 200mAh.
Tab P480 sports 7.0-inch WSVGA IPS display and runs on the Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS backed by quad-core Mediatek processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB inbuilt memory and a high-capacity battery, which can power the device for close to 168.5 hours under standby mode.
Connectivity specifications include dual-SIM slots, 3G network support, voice-calling feature, Bluetooth v4.0, Wi-Fi and GPS.
