Micromax had just recently launched the Canvas Fun A76 with a 5-inch screen and had priced it at Rs. 8499, but now it’s a similar device with a cheaper price and a smaller screen, with the Micromax Canvas Fun A74 having a 4.5-inch capacitive touchscreen, and the device is available on the online stores for a price of Rs. 7,749. The A74 Canvas Fun has got a Dual core processor clocking at 1.3 GHz speed and to support that, there’s a backing of 512 MB of RAM.
For the price at which its being sold, the A74 has got some good specifications to talk about, with the internal storage being provided by the company is 4 GB, and this could be expanded to 32 GB using the MicroSD card. Much like most of the other similar priced smartphones, there’s a 5-megapixel camera on the rear side, and a 0.3-megapixel front shooter for the video chat.
Available on the online stores such as Snapdeal, Infibeam, the Canvas Fun A74 runs the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS, and there is a battery of capacity 1500 mAh provided in it. The connectivity options included in the A74 include Wi-Fi, WAP, GPRS, WLAN and Wi-Fi Hot Spot. Just like most of the Micromax phones, this one too is a Dual-SIM device.
Micromax has taken the Fun series seriously lately, after the announcement of the A76, and very soon we would be getting to know about another device in the same series, the Micromax Fun A63 that is to enter the market soon. As of now, given the pricing, the A74 can see some competition from devices such as the Gionee P2, the Spice Stellar Glamour which hold the similar specifications and are priced around the same.
