When you visit the Micromax website you will be greeted on their landing page about the Canvas 4 pre-order. Dubbed as "Life Can Begin Now" you can pre-order your Canvas 4 for only 5000INR (less than PHP 3,700) and in case you change your mind you can refund the full amount.
If the rumors turn out to be true the Micromax Canvas 4 is just a rebranded Blu Life One. The specification is similar to the A116 Canvas HD (which we know in the Philippines as MyPhone A919i) with a few upgrades. The most noticeable upgrade is the internal storage which is bumped 4 times than the previous flagship, the ROM now is a whopping 16GB. The camera department was given a good impression as well, the main camera is now 13MP while the secondary camera is now 5MP.
The screen size and resolution is the same as of that with the Canvas HD, however the biggest improvement is having a Corning Gorilla Glass 2 protection. The usual sets of connectivity are also present - WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS with A-GPS.

The most important question for the Filipino is - will it reach the Philippine shore? We all know that MyPhone usually has similar phones with Micromax such as A115 Canvas aka MyPhone A919, A115 Canvas 3D aka MyPhone A919 3D and A116 Canvas HD aka MyPhone A919i. Will it be the next MyPhone flagship?
