There are several smartphones available in the Rs 20,000 price range to compete with Micromax Canvas Turbo.

Sony Xperia C, Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, Xolo Q1000s, Nokia Lumia 820 and HTC Windows Phone 8X are the main contenders.

Promoted by Hugh Jackman, Hollywood actor, Micromax Canvas Turbo is available for Rs 19,990. Micromax, which has seen two senior level resignations — its CEO and MD – is gearing up to rake in market share with new promotions and marketing campaigns centered around the Hollywood actor.

Most of these phones are not new in India. This means the launch price of some of these phones are at higher level.
