Homegrown handset firm Micromax on Thursday launched its latest flagship smartphone which it claims to be the world's slimmest and lightest 4G device.

With a thickness of 5.1 mm (end-to-end) and weighing 97 gm, the phone is priced at Rs 17,999 and will be available from June-end across the country.

 

Micromax Informatics CEO Vineet Taneja said they try to align the devices with the evolving needs of new-age users and the latest smartphone is testimony to this vision.

"The Canvas Sliver 5 brings together the elements of unmatched design, style and performance in one device as a result of diligent efforts of our R&D team to find the perfect balance," Taneja said.

 

The phone comes with a seven-day doorstep service policy. The company also announced association with Hollywood star Hugh Jackman for the smartphone. The association comes as an extension of Micromax’s partnership with Jackman for the Canvas series.

 

The phone comes with a free 4G SIM and double data offer from Airtel which doubles the 4G data amount for any consumer activating the 4G SIM.
