Without much hoopla, Micromax launched the Micromax Canvas Fun A74. It was a stealthy launch as there was hardly any news or promotions of the Fun A74. The price of Micromax Canvas Fun A74 is Rs. 7,749. The Indian phone maker didn’t have anything much to say about the launch of the phone before.
Actually, as it isn’t a flagship model, it was launched in a low-key affair unlike the teasers and big promotions the flagship models get. Interestingly, the phone isn’t still listed officially on the website of the company. However, the same can be seen on two e-com websites. The phone is an average product and can be safely termed as a budget phone. One of the surprises sprung by Micromax is the operating system in the phone.
The phone runs on Android Jelly Bean 4.2. It should be noted that Micromax isn’t known for offering the latest OS in their budget phones. However, this is clearly an exception here. As a matter of fact, even Micromax Canvas Doodle 2, which is the most expensive phone from Micromax has the Android 4.2. The phone is built with a FWVGA screen. And has a display resolution of 720 X 1280 pixels. This clearly means the phone has a compact size screen. At a budget phone, the compact screen looks great. At a time when many companies are going for bigger screens, Micromax chose to go with a smaller screen. The phone is bundled with a 1.3 GHz dual-core processor. The internal storage is 4GB, while the RAM is 512 MB. But that is only for the sake of it. Actually, you are likely to get only slightly more than 1GB. The reason for this is the phone has loads of apps pre-loaded and that eats a lot of memory. But the memory card comes in handy here. The memory can be expanded up to 32GB. The rear 5MP camera comes with LED flash and the front end camera is a VGA only. There are three colors to choose from. The Fun A74 has a 1500mAh battery.
