Micromax Canvas Fantabulet with 6.98-inch Display is Largest Smartphone Ever

by Vishal Toshiwal 0

Micromax Informatics has introduced its biggest smartphone yet, a 6.98-inch device that is aimed to introduce a new category in the Indian smartphone industry. The Canvas Fantabulet, weird name for a phone, sports a whopping 7-inch HD display that would be catering the need of consumer wanting to buy phablet. Last year, Lenovo introduced a similar smartphone with a display size larger than any average phablet, it was called Lenovo Phab Plus, initially announced at IFA 2015.

What’s impressive than its biggest display is that device comes with a Dual Box speakers where DTS technology is integrated to offer great audio experience. Now that is combined with an extensive real estate can be a good audio-visual experience for movie buffs on-the-go. Created solely for media consumption, this new category handset can be a benchmark for offering affordable handsets with large real estate and incredible audio output technology.

Under the hood is the MediaTek chipset clocking at 1.3GHz with Quad-cores, it is accompanied by a 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, which can be expanded via microSD card slot. It would be running on the older Android Lollipop 5.0 version, which is a setback for this big phablet. Regarding the camera modules, it packs 8-megapixel Autofocus image sensor on the rear while the 2-megapixel fixed focus module on the front.

The device doesn’t have much to offer in terms of the connectivity options apart from 3G and 2G network connectivity while providing a usual set of feature including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. It can be assumed that device sports GPS, but the company hasn’t whether it supports the location tracking feature or not. All this would be powered by a 3000mAh battery, which won’t be enough for a smartphone with the largest display ever. The company should have offered large battery capacity as it sports a display equal to a tablet size.

Micromax Canvas Pulse 4G with 3GB RAM Launched at Rs 9,999

The Micromax Fantabulet would be available for purchase at Rs 7499 for a Gold Chrome color, exclusively via Flipkart, the online retailer in India. You can expect a bundle offering such as Eros Now, Kindle, Saavn and Gaana apps pre-installed on the device. Whereas the 90 days subscription for Saavn Pro would be free of cost for you, while you can stream movies on Eros Now.
