Micromax Canvas Duet AE90 is now available online

Following the usual tradition, the Canvas Duet AE90 from Micromax has gone on sale in India sans any announcement from the company. Well, in a few days, we should hear official word on the phone’s arrival. The device is another addition to the entry-level market and it’s priced below Rs 10000.

It’s pretty weird that Micromax has chosen to launch the Canvas Duet AE90 now when it should have done so a long time back, considering that the Duet 2 EG111 has been on sale since February. Or it’s probably that the OEM doesn’t wish to follow a consecutive naming strategy. The newly available phone is much smaller than the latter device which stands tall at 5.3 inches.

It offers a 4.5-inch qHD display with 540 x 960p resolution. If this wasn’t disappointing enough, the phone comes with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box. Xolo’s recently launched Q1011 KitKat handset looks to be a much better option at Rs 9999. The Duet AE90 is currently retailing for as low as Rs 8999 on Infibeam, while a seller on eBay has listed it for Rs 9299.

Nevertheless, you do get a 1.2GHz quad core processor and an entire gigabyte of RAM. Apart from this, the phone offers a 5MP rear camera with LED flash, a VGA webcam on the front, 4GB of storage, a microSD card slot, dual SIM support (GSM + CDMA) and a 1800mAh battery that can deliver just 5.5 hours of talktime, 4 hours of browsing or 150 hours of standby.

You can purchase the Micromax Canvas Duet AE90 through Infibeam via this link or shell out a little more cash and get it through eBay India.
