Android 4.4 KitKat last week, the Unite 2
. The company has now made available its second Android KitKat smartphone, the Canvas Engage
, which can be purchased online at Rs. 6,199.
The Micromax Canvas Engage notably has not yet been listed on the company's site, and there is no word when the smartphone will be officially launched. It's worth noting that if Micromax launches the Canvas Engage at Rs. 6,199, the smartphone will become the most affordable smartphone running Android KitKat out-of-the-box, leaving behind Moto E and Micromax Unite 2, both priced at Rs. 6,999. The Unite 2's other USP is its support for 20 regional languages (as well as English) with its Reverie Multilingual Pack.
