Micromax, one of the leading Indian mobile manufacturing companies, has recently been preparing to officially launch its latest Android smartphone the Micromax Canvas Blaze MT500, and this device has already been listed online at ShopClues website with a price tag of Rs. 11,999.
Just like all the other smartphones of the popular Canvas series, the Micromax Canvas Blaze too comes with the much-needed dual SIM support. However, there is a catch here that it offers only CDMA+GSM connectivity option. It is indeed not a good feature, and quite a rare too among the other smartphones of its price range.
This Android device features a 5-inch long touch-screen display which provides an intuitive and friendly Interface in order to help a user to operate the phone with super finesse. It is powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor, and runs on Android v4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) mobile OS.
The Micromax Canvas Blaze sports an 8-megapixel auto focus rear camera with 4x zoom and Flash support and a 0.3-megapixel front facing camera for video calling and self photography. It is also equipped with the Gravity sensor and proximity sensor which actively ensures that the phone automatically reacts according to the various orientations and conditions.
This phone includes 768MB of RAM and its memory can be expanded by up to 32GB with the help of a microSD card. It also has all the advanced connectivity options including Wi-Fi, GPS, GPRS, EDGE, Bluetooth and CDMA support. It is nicely backed up with a 1,850 mAh battery which can deliver up to 5 hours of talk time and 120 hours of standby time.
Micromax is offering manufacturing warranty of 1 year on this device. This phone is expected to arrive in white color with a silver colored rim on both the sides.

Micromax Canvas Blaze will soon officially hit the Indian market, and many potential buyers are actually waiting for its launch. It has high quality cameras, processors and a large screen, but it doesn’t provide GSM+GSM support, and users will have to adjust with a dedicated CDMA SIM. This might cause a few problems while comparing it to the other offerings from the active rival companies.
It needs to be mentioned here that all the details about the Micromax Canvas Blaze MT500 have yet to be disclosed, and we’ll keep update this post after its official launch by the parent company Micromax.
