Micromax has quietly launched a quad-core version of its ultrapopular A110 Canvas 2 smartphone. The A110Q Canvas 2 Plus is currently available through the company’s website for Rs 12,100.

The best part about the Canvas 2 Plus is that it runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, which is just one peg below the latest version of the OS. The smartphone has a 5-inch display with a disappointing 854 x 480 resolution. We would have ideally liked to see a 720p display or at least a qHD one. In terms of processing power, the Q in the model number refers to the quad-core processor. Micromax has once again gone with MediaTek’s MT6589 chipset with each of the four cores clocked at 1.2GHz. The processor will benefit from 1GB of RAM.

In terms of design, there’s nothing here that stands out in comparison to other recent Micromax smartphones. We wish Micromax would move away from the tried-and-tested design formula and present something that’s also great to look at and not just good on paper.

Internal storage in the dual-SIM Canvas 2 Plus is restricted to 4GB, but there’s a microSD card alot as always, to take in cards up to 32GB in capacity. Just like the Canvas HD, which also has the MT6589 chipset, the Canvas 2 Plus also has a 8-megapixel camera with dual LED flash. The front camera is a 2-megapixel unit.

The 2000 mAh battery should last long considering the low-res display and the power-efficient chipset. The Canvas 2 Plus is pre-loaded with the M!Live app that allows users to download unlimited songs.
