Micromax Canvas 3 Specifications and Features
Display and Design
The MT6589 SoC is fabricated by UMC and features a PowerVR Series5XT GPU. The same processor that is powering the A116 Canvas HD’s 720p display can support displays up to 1080p. At the moment, though, 1080p displays are an expensive affair, but after the first wave of full HD phones, the prices are bound to come down. It wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to think Micromax may be ready with a 1080p display smartphone in Q4, just in time for the Diwali season. Of course, that early a timeline could mean that the phone might be priced closer to Rs 20,000 or even Rs 25,000, but even at that price it would be a steal. While we are on the subject of displays, the MediaTek processor’s GPU is powerful enough to support 3D, including real-time 2D to 3D conversion and support for 3D displays. We are just dreaming here, but a 3D 1080p display on a smartphone is the stuff of wet dreams.
The MT6589 supports sensors up to 13 megapixels with integrated in-system programming. The camera on the back of the A116 is an 8MP snapper. Bumping that up to 13 will give Micromax equal footing with the new flagships of brands such as Sony, which included a 13MP camera in the Xperia Z, and Samsung, which is expected to include a 13MP camera in the Samsung Galaxy S IV. If 13 megapixels do not satiate your photography needs, the MT6589 also has support for 3D cameras. These have not been seen on mobile phones since the HTC Evo 3D and LG Optimus 3D and it will be the first 3D camera phone to be launched by an Indian manufacturer.
Dual-SIM Dual Active radio
Not only does the MT6589 have an integrated graphics solution, it also comes with a built-in 42Mbps HSPA+ and TD-SCDMA-capable dual-SIM dual-active radio. This means that it will support 3G speeds of up to 42Mbps, which is a huge improvement over the dual-core MT6577, which was capped to just 7.2Mbps download speed by the hardware.
The MTK6589 also has in-built support for Miracast technology, which is great for seamless content sharing on multiple screens. It also has a pre-integrated connectivity combo, which supports 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and FM Radio. The n band is still nascent and isn’t supported on many mid-range handsets released in the last year or so
