It is quite rarely that smartphone manufacturers release their new models or make an announcement without a fanfare. The Indian mobile phone brand, it appears, is an exception. Micromax has quietly uploaded on its website a new smartphone, images and some details of the Micromax Canvas Selfie 2, a device about which there was very little information earlier.
However not all details are available still and hopefully, there will be a proper official announcement on the date of release of the phone and its price.
The design of the Micromax Selfie 2 has a metallic body with a physical home button in the front and the control buttons for volume adjustments and for power on/off.
The fingerprint sensor can also be noticed in the rear panel below the camera. The camera setup has a 13MP sensor in the rear and an 8MP selfie camera.
The reason the phone carries the â€˜Selfieâ€™ tag on its nomenclature itself is explained by the kind of apps and features besides the LED flash, added to support the front camera. These include an f/2.0 aperture wide angle lens and one touch shot and â€˜face beautyâ€™ mode.
There is also the real time Bokeh effect for optimizing the images captured through the selfie camera. Once the phone is released and you start using them, you may come across many more features.
The MediaTek M6737 is the processor fitted on the new Micromax Canvas Selfie 2 and the phone comes with a decent 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory.
The battery is 3000mAh and the company claims it will provide long hours of functioning and also in the standby mode.
Finally, it has been shared by the company that the Android Nougat version 7 out of the box will be the operating system and features like multi-window view are also included.
