Indian handset maker Micromax today launched its flagship smartphone Canvas-4. The much awaited smartphone is priced at INR 17,999 for consumers. Micromax unveiled its much-anticipated smartphone Canvas-4 A210 in New Delhi later today at 12 pm.

 The handset maker was excited at the launch and they even started a launch campaign earlier this July.  Pre-bookings were opened much before releasing the actual specifications of the device. Though now company has confirmed the specs which are as followed under.  The hype was so great that the company received more than 4000 bookings in the first seven hours itself.
