Popular online store Saholic has listed the much-anticipated next generation Micromax Canvas 4 A117 smartphone on its website.

Before the company could officially launch the smartphone, Spice Group owned e-commerce website, Saholic has gone ahead to reveal the speculated features of the Canvas 4 A117(White model). The retailer mentioned that the coveted Micromax device will be up for sale by 30 June, but chose to remain silent on its price.

Saholic claims that the Canvas 4 A117 will sport a 5.0-inch TFT LCD screen and run on Android mobile OS v4.2 Jelly Bean with 2GB RAM and 16GB inbuilt memory which can be expanded up to 64GB through microSD card.
