The Indian handset maker, Micromax is largely known for its Canvas series of smartphones in India with a good value for money offering. Now the handset maker has gone ahead and launched its flagship device in the Indian handset market this year. Micromax has launched two devices called Micromax Canvas 6 and Canvas 6 Pro, out of which the later has managed to grab our attention. Priced at Rs 13999, Micromax Canvas 6 Pro is the flagship smartphone by the brand and nothing like any of Micromax’s past devices. Here is all that you need to know about the latest flagship device from the brand.
Around UI: New and Interactive
With Micromax Canvas 6 Pro, the handset maker has introduced its newly developed Around UI designed in collaboration with its subsidiary YU. This user interface that runs atop the Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system is Micromax’s attempt toward the Internet of Things expansion. Around user interface has been designed by the brand so that the users of Canvas 6 Pro can avail movie tickets, food delivery and holiday bookings from within the interface itself. While the actual user interface of the device will remain identical to Vanilla Android with minimal visual changes like icons, Around UI can be accessed by long pressing the home button.
