Configurations and expectations from Micromax canvas Turbo

Rumours are on top high because of Hugh Jackman , Full HD display and flagship from the Micromax who are famous for creating lot of buzz from there latest offering. This time , they came up with Micromax Canvas Turbo A 250 which will be company's first Full HD display device. People are expecting a lot but only time and Micromax can reveal what all will be in final package. Hugh Jackman is not an easy deal to bring under the table that says, something big is cooking. Micromax Canvas Doodle 2 is the costliest of there all offerings with the price tag of around 18K-19K. Indian people know Micromax for there value to money handsets not for giving premium finish, where as on other hand we expect a good looking device but are not ready to pay , the reason is country's own brand. We believe , if Micromax team will launch Micromax Canvas Turbo taking price into consideration , they can achieve more.

lets see , what people are expecting from this device :

 Display :  From leaked sources and code base , it is confirmed that Canvas Turbo will come with 1920*1080 pixel resolution. Screen size will be 5Inch that means 440+ PPI. The display will be a charm to look into.

Operating system : Google is ready with 4.4 KitKat release. We can expect Canvas Turbo to come preloaded. If not preloaded than at least FOTA support for the same.
 Anything less than that will fade the shine of the Canvas Turbo.

 Processor and Memory : Code base revealed that Canvas Turbo is running on 1.5 GHZ quad core MediaTek 6589T Chip set with PowerVR SGX 544MP GPU. We are still in doubt , reason is Mediatek's true Octa core processor. Mediatek recently launched there Octacore processor and Micromax is the one who are first in attempting new things and are the first to bring Mediatek in Indian market. This doubt will be cleared once the final specifications will be unveils.
 Device is supposed to be of 1GB RAM with 32 GB inbuilt memory.

 Camera : This field , we have a big expectation. Micromax Posted in Facebook wall and shown some indication for major software upgradation in terms of Camera. There post says of a feature which allows users to remove unwanted objects from the pics without distorting image. This feature we have seen in HTC one with named as HTC Zoe.
 HTC zoe has other features also which include taking prior pics before clicking , showing few seconds clips for video as a previews , Slow motion recording and more.
 We are not sure of all these features but can expect good upgradation here. Primary camera is supposed to be 13 MP with no specified sensor. Micromax already given 13MP camera with Sony BSI sensor in Canvas 4 which impressed users with its clicking capabilities.

 Many devices in market are already running on Sony BSI sensor 2 so, we can expect BSI sensor 2 here also.

 Front camera if of 5 MP and is shown in sketch image also. we believe both cameras can create videos in Full HD format so, that Canvas Turbo users can view all in full HD.

 Looks and feel : This is a very confusing topic for Indian market. People want good looks, metallic body ,slim devices but don't want to pay for Indian manufacturers. Indian users can pay 25K or more for brands which come from outside but cant pay even close to 20K for such built quality by Indian manufacturers.
So, We expect a decent build quality but that should not exceed the price more.
Canvas Turbo will come with Aluminium body that can be uni-body. From the pics , both the SIM card slots are on sides of Handset so, might be there will be no expandable memory. 

Battery and connectivity option : Battery of the Canvas Turbo is still unknown.Full HD screen uses more juice so, Micromax has to give Powerhouse to this handset. 3000mAh will be a good one.
In terms of connectivity GPS , micro USB 2.0 , Bluthooth version 4 , wifi are expected at least.
we have seen many devices with NFC capabilities and Infra red option to use your device as Remote. NFC is a feature which an Indian customer hardly uses and there is no point to give such feature to only increase the price value. where as Infra red capability can be of great use.

Price : coming to the final point that is Price of the device. Canvas 4 is a good build handset with many new features like pause and play , blow air to unlock , multi window but is priced a bit high. If the device would be under 15k-16K , we belive it would have done much better.
For Micromax Canvas Turbo , price of 15k or around would be a decent one. More than this will create doubt in mind whether to go for Canvas turbo or to add some more bucks and go for Samsung or Sony devices.

Well, this all are our expectation and assumptions. Ball is in Micromax's court ,let see whether Canvas Turbo will shake the market or will be just an average selling device.
