Micromax reminded its fans on Twitter to register for the Canvas Spark sale.

Micromax Canvas Spark is selling in great numbers. The company claims to have sold over five lakh units since its release in April. Considering the handset goes on sale only once a week, it is quite an impressive figure. Canvas Spark is of great value at Rs 4,999, making it a suitable buy for those who wish to switch to smartphones.

The model packs a 4.7-inch qHD display with 960 x 540 pixel screen and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. It is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core Cortex A7 MediaTek MT6582M processor, 1GB DDR3 RAM and 8GB expandable storage. It runs on Google's latest Android 5.0 Lollipop OS.

The model also has an impressive 8MP rear-facing camera with flash and a 2MP front snapper. There's a 2,000mAh battery that can deliver up to seven hours of talk time. It is available in white and grey hues. Additionally, the handset offers 21-language support along with Reverie language pack to pull in the local crowd.
