Micromax Canvas Knight A350 with octa-core CPU, 16MP camera rumoured to be coming this February
Upcoming Micromax flagship
MMXNewscaster – the person that brings the latest scoop on Micromax smartphones – has given a sneak peek of its alleged next flagship device. The upcoming flagship called the Canvas Knight A350 Gold aka Canvas 6 is expected to launch in February. The tweet reads, “Micromax Canvas Knight A350 GOLD. 2 GHz Octa Core, 32 GB, 2GB,16MP,5MP,5″ FHD. 7.3mm.” It is also known to be among the handsets that will mark Micromax’s entry in Russia. The Canvas Knight is reportedly already unveiled in Russia.
The next gen Canvas gets a pretty nifty specs sheet, if the rumour is to be believed, and is ready to take on the likes of the Gionee Elife E7 and Grand 2. The Canvas Knight seems to have a sleek profile with 7.3mm thickness. Apart from white and black colour options, the company also plans to dip the device in the popular gold hue. It’s not surprising as most manufacturers have started churning out their flagships in gold, ever since Apple launched the iPhone 5s.
It’s said to sport a large 5-inch Full HD 1080 display. However, it runs on the rather older Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, and there is no word if it’s upgradeable. Going by the previous rumours, Micromax plans to bring KitKat to its premium lineup, and if it happens to do so, then the Knight seems worthy of the update.
Under the hood, it comes powered by a 2GHz octa-core Mediatek MT6592 processor coupled with 2GB RAM. On the camera front, one can expect a massive 16-megapixel rear snapper and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with auto focus. Micromax plans to offer 32GB onboard storage, but there is no word on other storage capacities or external memory support yet. It must be noted that all of this remains in the realm of speculation at the moment, but looks like Micromax is bringing a really big gun to the smartphone party.
