Homegrown smartphone manufacturer Micromax is all-set to launch a new budget device called the Canvas Duet AE90. The device is already listed on two leading e-commerce sites at Rs 9,150 and Rs 8,678, but there has been no official announcement from the company yet.

On board storage stands at 4GB, while it can be expanded up to a maximum of 32GB via a micro SD card slot. The Canvas Duet is powered by a 1,800mAh battery which is rated at 5.5 hours of talktime and 150 hours of standby time.
