Micromax Launches World’s Slimmest & Lightest Canvas Sliver 5 Phone With 5.1mm Thickness At Rs. 17,999


Indian handsets maker, Micromax has entered into the slim device category also and launched today Canvas Sliver 5 smartphone. The USP of this phone is that it has a thickness of 5.1mm (end to end) and weigs a mere 97 grams. Micromax claims that the Canvas Sliver 5 is the world’s slimmest and lightest 4G LTE enabled smartphone. This phone is also thinner than Gionee ELife 5.1 (5.1mm thickness ) as demonstrated in the launch event in New Delhi.

The Canvas Sliver 5 smartphone will be available from first week of July across India at MRP of Rs. 17,999. This phone will be available in two colors – White plus Golden and Greyish black.

The Canvas Sliver 5 comes in metallic frame which is made from aircraft grade aluminum. It is designed in such a way to give it sturdy and pretty look. This will be ideal for those who want to flaunt the slimmest gadget in their hands.


Besides its slim design, this phone is packed with powerful features also. The Canvas Sliver 5 features a 4.8-inch AMOLED HD display(720×1280 pixels), which is claimed to provide a 16.7 million color depth catching every color in its brilliant and spectacular form. This phone’s  Glass and Metal Body is fortified with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protecction.

This phone is Single SIM device and is powered by a 1.2 Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 Quad Core processor, coupled with a 2GB DDR3 RAM and 16GB of internal storage, which cannot be expanded. It is also equipped with an 8MP AF rear camera with SONY IMX219 sensor, 4P Largan Lens and Blue Glass Filter for shooting high quality images. It also houses a 5MP FF front camera with intelligent beauty mode for clicking perfect selfies with great ease.


This phone runs on the latest Android Lollipop OS and is fuelled by a 2000 mAH high density Lithium Polymer battery with an intelligently optimized User Interface, which automatically enables 30% power saving for long lasting battery life.

This phone is also packed with  Dirac HD sound and NXP Smart Power Amplifier for rendering louder sound, deeper bass and room-filling deep sound.

The Canvas Sliver 5 incorporates Light Sensor, Gravity Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Magnetic Sensor and Accelerometer Sensor, and comes loaded with
applications such as Scandid, Swiftkey, Hotstar, Quikr, Cleanmaster, Snapdeal, and many more.

To make the offer sweeter, the Canvas Sliver 5 comes with a free 4G SIM and double data offer for three months from Airtel which doubles the 4G data amount for any consumer activating the 4G SIM.

At the launch event, Micromax also announced the industry first after-sales-service initiative for the buyers of Canvas Sliver 5 and for one more device launched recently. Under the new initiative, the device will be picked-up from your door in the event of any problem and the same will be returned within 7 days with issues resolved.

The highlight of the Canvas Sliver 5 is its slimmness, light weight and appealing design. But its limitations are its non-extendable internal storage and Single SIM capability although majority of the users do not use Dual SIMs in their devices even if they support two SIMs. But the question is whether you would pay Rs. 18,000 just for thin device when you can get more powerful devices at less price, which are little bit heavier ? Our other reservation is whether this slim device will also heat-up the way other slim smartphones are prone to heating problem. We shall be able to comment after testing the device when we get it for detailed analysis.
