Micromax launches Canvas Sliver 5, Hugh Jackman back to promote

MUMBAI: Micromax Mobiles launched its new Canvas-series smartphone called the Canvas Sliver 5. The Gurgaon-based company also revealed that actor Hugh Jackman is back on board to promote the new smartphone and the first ad is expected to air on television in July.

The Micromax Canvas Sliver 5 runs on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, and supports a single Nano-SIM card and features a 4.8-inch (720x1280 pixels) HD Amoled display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. It is powered by a 64-bit 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor along with 2GB of DDR3 RAM.

The smartphone sports an 8-megapixel autofocus rear camera with Sony IMX219 CMOS sensor with a 'blue glass filter' and LED flash. It also includes a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, and is backed by a 2000mAh battery with improved battery backup, the company claims. The Canvas Sliver 5 comes with 16GB of inbuilt memory, without expandable storage support.

The Micromax Canvas Sliver 5’s USP is its 5.1mm thickness, which the company claims is maintained ‘end-to-end’ on the handset without any bump. Another highlight of this smartphone is that it supports 4G LTE, and comes with Airtel's Double 4G Data offer that doubles the 4G data amount for any consumer.

The Micromax Canvas Sliver 5 will be available in Gold and Black colour variants.

The Micromax Canvas Sliver 5 has been priced at Rs 17,999 and will be available starting the first week of July.
