Indian smartphone manufacturer Micromax has launched two devices – the Canvas 6 and Canvas 6 Pro – with fingerprint scanner and impressive specifications, but it won't be a cake walk for the company, as there are dozens of budget smartphones currently available in the Indian market. The handsets will have to take on devices like Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 and Lenovo K4 Note in the market.

Micromax Canvas 6 has a metallic body, while the Canvas 6 Pro has a plastic body but with better specifications. The company is yet to announce the price of the former but the latter is currently available for pre-orders and is priced at Rs. 13,999. This means it will have to compete with the Lenovo K4 Note and Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 (32GB) which come with a price tag of Rs. 11,999.

The Canvas 6 Pro costs a couple of thousands more than the Redmi Note 3 and K4 Note but these devices are almost head-to-head in terms of specifications, and comparison may give prospective buyers a better idea of which one to buy. Let's have a look at what these devices have to offer:
