Even though the Canvas Infinity impresses with the 18:9 Full Vision display that is usually found in high-end models, the specs and the US$156 price recommend it as a mid-range smartphone. The model will only be available through Amazon India starting September 1st.

If you like the design of LG’s Q6 smartphone, but cannot really afford it, you could take a look at the new Canvas Infinity from Indian company Micromax. It certainly does not have the advanced specs of the LG smartphone, but Micromax has managed to integrate a similar ultra-wide 18:9 display used by the South Koreans. The Canvas Infinity features a 5.7-inch display, a full 0.2-inch larger than the LG Q6 display. Micromax even kept the Full Vision name and rounded corners, even though the resolution was reduced to 1440 x 720.

Looking at the specs, the Canvas Infinity comes with what you would expect from a mid-range phone. It is powered by the Snapdragon 425 CPU and features 3 GB of RAM with 32 GB of internal storage. The imaging features are focused on the selfie aspects, as the front camera has a 16 MP sensor and the rear one only features a 13 MP sensor. The front camera features soft focus and real time Bokeh effects, while the rear one has an f2.0 aperture and integrates the Auto HDR technology. Additionally, there’s a fingerprint sensor and a 2,900 mAh battery.

The Canvas Infinity will only be available for around US$156 through Amazon India starting September 1st.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
