Micromax is apparently gearing up to announce its next Canvas Doodle smartphone soon. The Indian technology firm has released a teaser image of the phone on its official Facebook page.
Rumours about the Canvas Doodle 2 smartphone had surfaced earlier, but this is the first time that Micromax has confirmed the development. The company posted a hand-drawn image with the smartphone model name followed by a tagline that read 'can your imagination get bigger?'
The illustration, however, did not reveal anything about the specifications of the upcoming device. A line which read "Draw, Depict or Doodle and let your thoughts come to life on a bigger Canvas.

According to reports, Canvas Doodle 2 is due for a launch anytime soon and is likely to fall in the ₹18,000 price range. Regarding its specifications, the smartphone is expected to sport a 5.7-inch screen with 720 pixel resolution and powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6589 processor.
Other stipulated features include 1GB RAM, 16GB of expandable internal storage, 12-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, 5-megapixel secondary camera, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and 2,600mAh battery. The phone may also come with support for vertical panorama in camera app, video pinning to home-screen support, Flip to mute, and Smart Pause.
The device will be pitted against Samsung's Galaxy Mega 5.8, which is priced around ₹23,000.
