Micromax launches Canvas Plex in India
Indian brand Micromax has just unveiled a new tablet designed for media consumption that comes with a one-year premium subscription to Eros Now. Dubbed Canvas Plex, this 8-inch slate promises to hit the market this Friday for a price tag of INR₹12,999, the equivalent of about US$203.
Micromax Canvas Plex has an unknown processor under the hood, next to 3 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, an 8-inch HD touchscreen display, as well as DTS Sound for an improved multimedia experience. The tablet is powered by a 4,000 mAh battery and features a camera with LED flash on the back. All the details should become available once it goes on sale.
The Eros Now online streaming service offers a rich collection of Bollywood and regional language films, TV shows, and music videos. The app comes pre-loaded and can be considered a local competitor to Netflix and Amazon Video. Micromax has more than 100 million users in India, so if the partnership with Eros Now proves successful, we might see both coming to other markets as well.
