The Canvas 4 comes with better quality body finish that includes aluminum plating which is there on the side. The phone is slimmer and lighter than the Canvas HD, however, Micromax has used plastic body at the back making it look glossy.

The phone sports a 5-inch TRU-HD display with 1280x720 pixels resolution similar to that of the Canvas HD. In terms of hardware you have the same 1.2 GHz quad-core processor from Mediatek and powered by Android 4.2 Jelly Bean v.

It gets 1 GB RAM, 16 GB internal memory out of which 12.4 GB is usable and expandable up to 32 GB via microSD. The Canvas 4 comes with a 13 MP rear camera that offers multiple features like Panorama mode, Image stabilization and five lens wrapped.
