Although many websites were reporting that the Micromax Canvas 4 A210 will launch for upwards of 24 thousand Rupees, it’s been officially launched today at a price of Rs 17,999.

Micromax Canvas 4′s key feature is a blow to unlock software. That and a 5 MP camera in the front ensure that the users have nothing to complain about lack of basic features. The main camera is a 13 MP autofocus camera and the back panel is glazed just like on Samsung Galaxy phones.

Micromax presently moves out over 300,000 units of their canvas series on a monthly basis and a device like this priced around the 15,000 Rupee price mark could easily increase that by 50%.

LG Optimus L7 II Dual listed running Android 4.3?

LG Optimus L7 II Dual listed running Android 4.3

While Android 4.3 never actually materialized at Google I/O last month, the latest version of Jelly Bean keeps popping up and making cameos all over. It most recently appeared in the specs for LG’s Optimus L7 II Dual (that name’s a handful, we know) on the company’s website. The handset was running Android 4.1 when we played with it at Mobile World Congress and appears to have shipped with that OS version in some markets. Obviously, it’s only a matter of time until Android 4.3 becomes official but we fully expect it to debut on Google’s own Nexus 4 flagship before coming to any other device. In light of this, and considering the Optimus L7 II features a 4.3-inch screen, perhaps we’re just looking at a typo? We’ve reached out to LG for clarification — we’ll keep you posted.
