Micromax Canvas 6 Pro E484 is unveiled by Micromax in an event held along with the Micromax Canvas 6. The Canvas 6 Pro I will say is a premium quality device at a mid-range affordable and fairly reasonable price. Canvas 6 Pro goes on pre-book on Micromax’s website where the buyer has to give Rs. 1000 to prebook and then the phone will be available on 20th April 2016, Wednesday on a first come first basis till the stocks last. Lets not delay and checkout the hardware specifications of the phone:

Looking to the Hardware Specs and price ratio of this phone does not excite me much as compared to similar phones out there in the market. You too should feel the same when I will compare several aspects of the phone with existing phones out there. Some phones with the same Mediatek Helio X10 (MT6795M) are: Redmi NOTE 2, LeEco 1S, Meizu MX5, Xperia M5 Dual etc. While the Xperia M5 Dual and the Meizu MX 5 are on the upper side in price, so I am not going to compare them because the comparison won’t be of worth with these two phones.
Lets do a quick hardware comparison of hardware specs of the Micromax Canvas 6 Pro and with some of the other phones with the same chipset (Mediatek Helio X10 MT6795M):
Below is the comparison of Canvas 6 Pro with Redmi NOTE 2 and Le 1S

I have highlighted the better spec among all of the devices with bold letters. If you see closely then you will find the LeEco 1S which is almost 30% less in price and is better than the Micromax Canvas 6 PRO in every possible aspect except the 4GB RAM. You should go for this Micromax Canvas 6 Pro if and only if you need the 4GB RAM. Just take a look what you are losing by not chosing the LeEco 1s here is the following: Better processor, Finger print Sensor, Better Camera (both front and primary) etc. Finally the choice is yours to see what you need and just hang on to with us to see the review in the coming weeks.
Recently Yu Televentures has announced the Yureka NOTE with Fingerprint, 6-inch display and more at a price of Rs. 13,499. Have a look here for the detailed hardware spec and comparison between Canvas 6 Pro and the Yureka NOTE.
