Micromax Canvas 5 Lite Smartphone Specifications
Hardware and Software Specifications
The Canvas 5 Lite has a 5-inch IPS HD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. The phone is powered by a 1.3GHz MediaTek quad-core processor, backed by 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. One significant drawback of the device is that it does not support the expansion of the on-board memory of the device and that might be a major low on the part of the smartphone as a storage of just 16GB on a total for a smartphone is no longer sufficient.
