The smartphone is an Amazon India exclusive, but will also go on sale via offline stores at a later date.

Micromax Canvas Infinity features
The first glance on the Micromax Canvas Infinity and you will find it way different from other devices that rule the market at this price point. This is primarily because of the screen, which covers the majority part of the Micromax Canvas Infinity. Coupled with this with a compact form factor and you get a 5.7-inch display. Some might say that the display is more or less like the one present in the LG G6, but, hey it still looks pretty good. Japanese major Sharp has been building them for as long as one can remember. Sharp’s Aquos Crystal was nothing short of an engineering marvel of its time. Sadly, its border-less display was the one and only highlight of the Aquos Crystal. The navigations buttons are on-screen, while at the top you see an earpiece and front-facing camera. At the right, there are volume controls along with a power on/off button, which is easy to access, while the left is bare. At the base, there is a micro USB port, while at the top, one will find a headphone jack.

The metal frame surrounds the phone, with 2.5D curved glass dominating the front. The screen has rounded corners with a thin bezel over the top and bottom. Flip over and the Canvas Infinity reveals a single camera lens, a fingerprint scanner, and the mono speaker. Unlike other unibody, metal clad devices, the Canvas Infinity’s back pops off to reveal a battery, two separate SIM slots, and a microSD slot.
The Canvas Infinity is constructed out of metal, but the back is removable like the Moto G5. The bottom of the smartphone houses a USB 2.0 connector with the headphone jack located at the top of the phone.
At the launch event of this smartphone, Micromax also announced a 24-hour service promise to repair or replace the device in that stipulated time frame. Micromax claims that this service will be available at Micromax Express Service centers exclusively, and the list of these centers will be updated on the website. Micromax also confirmed that the Canvas Infinity will get the Android 8.0 Oreo update soon. Notably, the factory system images and OTA update for compatible phones were made a life by Google just a day ago. As we mentioned, While the smartphone is an Amazon India exclusive for now, co-founder Rahul Sharma did confirm that the smartphone will be sold through offline channels as well, eventually.
