The ultra-cheap Micromax Canvas Xpress 2 grabbed the attention of several smartphone buyers in India after its launch last month. The first flash sale last Tuesday showed how popular the handset was among prospective buyers as the entire stock sold out in less than 2 minutes. The India-based smartphone manufacturer is looking to continue the trend by hosting yet another flash sale exclusively via Flipkart on 11 August at 2 pm.

In order to participate in the upcoming Canvas Xpress 2 flash sale, prospect buyers must register beforehand. The registration window closes tonight (10 August) ahead of the 11 August sale, so make sure you put down your email addresses before you run out of time.

Micromax is keeping the details of the inventory a secret. The company did not mention how many units were sold last week or the number of handsets up for sale on Tuesday. But in any case, the demand for the ultra-cheap Rs. 5,999-Android smartphone appears to be extremely high, so it is advised that you act fast if you really wish to purchase the handset on 11 August.

Micromax Canvas Xpress 2 is a worthy competitor of industry's popular handsets like Xiaomi Redmi 2, second generation Motorola Moto E and even Yu Yuphoria. Powered by a 1.4GHz octa-core MediaTek processor and 1GB RAM, the handset boasts a 5-inch HD display and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 with Native Damage Resistance technology to add extra strength.

The Canvas Xpress 2 runs on Android 4.4.4 KitKat, but can be upgraded to Android 5.1 Lollipop. The handset offers an impressive 13MP primary camera with f/2.0 aperture, adjustable ISO, dual-LED flash and a 2MP front snapper. The handset has dual SIM support and packs a 2,500mAh battery for up to 9.5 hours of talktime.

The Micromax handset has an immersive audio system, thanks to the integrated Cirrus Logic Wolfson Stereo DAC. At Rs. 5,999, Micromax Canvas Xpress 2 is a wise choice.
