The original Canvas smartphone – A100 Superfone Canvas was launched in August last year and since then the company has released three more Canvas smartphones – A110 Canvas 2, A116 Canvas HD and A72 Canvas Viva. It took the company more than seven months to achieve this feat.
Although Micromax does not give a break-up of Canvas series sales, the trends show that A116 and A110 have been the most popular smartphones in the Canvas series.

When we launched the Canvas HD, for the first time our online sales partners had witnessed a digital queue in cyberspace to such an extent for any product, to the traditional cue one normally sees. It was great to witness consumers wait until 12:00am for their chance to book the Canvas HD on Valentine’s Day selling 9000 units in less than 24 hours.” We hope to further strengthen our leadership in the smart phone segment in the coming months, as we continue to bring an exciting range of “CANVAS” phones which are driven by consumer insights and cater to the needs of the market.”
