Micromax Canvas Spark to take on Redmi 2 & Moto E (2nd Gen)

Micromax Canvas SparkIndian smartphone vendor Micromax is getting ready to launch a new budget smartphone in the country, which will take on the Xiaomi Redmi 2 and Moto E (2nd Gen).

The company recently started teasing the phone on social media and revealed that it will be dubbed as Canvas Spark. Micromax has also stated that the phone will be exclusive to e-retailer Snapdeal.com.

Although the company has not shared any other details, a report from TOI Tech indicates that the Canvas Spark will retail under INR 6,000 and will go on sale in the last week of April using flash sale model. The publication has also written that the phone will be powered by a quad-core processor.

We were able to independently confirm that Canvas Spark is indeed powered by a quad-core CPU and it is MediaTek’s MT6582. The same processor has been used in Android One phones and dozen of other Android phones selling in the country right now.

Among other specifications, we were told that the Canvas Spark will sport a 4.7-inch screen and run on Android 5.0. The phone will also feature dual-SIM support and microSD card slot.

We are expecting an official announcement soon, probably next week.

    I am writing this post in great anguish, pain and with sheer disappointment due to Micromax mobile company and its service centre. I have been a victim of forgery and fraud by Micromax mobile services. I bought Micromax Turbo A- 250 on 14-11-2013 at a cost of 17800 rupees with IMEI no-911334750077175/911334750281173 . The phone started malfunctioning within 3 months for which I went to Micromax service centre M/S-THE DELIGHT SERVICES, ASC Owner- Md Shafiq sheikh, PLOT NO34, METRO PILLAR NO 232, NEAR SHADIPUR METRO STATION, NEW DELHI-8.TIN NO-07350437895. They kept my phone for more than a month to repair. The phone again went blank on 28-07-2014 for which I again went to DELIGHT service centre in Shadipur and they kept the phone to repair and made JOBSHEET NO- N030760-0734-1114680 and again made Jobsheet on 23-12-2014 with JOB SHEET NO- N030760-1214-14093900 but had not repaired the phone till now (06-03-2015). I kept on going to the service centre (at least 20 times) but every time they bluffed me and gave fresh dates. In last 8 months I called them at least ten thousand times which either they did not respond or kept me waiting with lines on and they chatting among themselves. In their service centre they treated me as if I were a fool and even tried to hand me somebody else`s phone with obviously a different IMEI number which is a clear case of breach of trust and committing fraud. Due to this cheat and forgery I have suffered deep mental agony and lost my peace of mind. It`s so unfortunate that despite calling in their customer care nothing happened. Md Shafiq Sheikh even threatens on asking where about of the phone. The Micromax Company has been harassing me in the name selling cheap quality phones and third class service centres in which they hire goons to intimidate customers and cheat people.

    I request the higher authority of Micromax company (if any) to kindly take notice of my complain and relieve me of this unending pain and trauma .
