Over the last few months, as the Indian handset and telecom industry has undergone dynamic shift, the focus of consumers is shifting from just the hardware, to overall connected experience. Therefore, to address the consumer needs, we are happy to partner with Airtel to offer a full year of unlimited calls and 4G data with the new Canvas2, which will help drive large scale adoption throughout the country. Our partnership with Corning has also helped us make Canvas2, the first smartphone to offer Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5 in its price segment. We expect Canvas 2 to yet again set a bench mark and revolutionize the overall smartphone adoption.”

Corning Gorilla Glass 5, our best cover glass yet, improves drop performance far outperforming competitive glass designs. We’re thrilled that Micromax is the first Indian device company to incorporate our most advanced Gorilla Glass into its flagship Canvas device to give its mid-segment customers an unrivalled performance.”
