The Indian cell phone manufacturer, Micromax, has unleashed its first octa-core handset. The Micromax Canvas Knight is packed with heavy specifications although have managed to maintain a low price making it an exciting product.
The smartphone sports a design that very closely resembles the iPhone. Many think the company might be trying to compete with the tech giant, Apple, with this device. The smartphone is available in 3 different colors: black, gold & black and gold & white. Micromax also uses a different button lay out by placing the power button just beside the volume buttons.
Packed with an IPS LCD capacitive touch screen, the Canvas Knight sports a 5.0” full HD display. It has a pixel density of 441ppi with a resolution of 1920×1080 offering a clear and sharp display.
This device houses a powerful Octa-core 2GHz Cortex-A7 processor supported with 2GB RAM allowing superior performance even with high end applications. It packs a non-removable Li-ion battery of 2350mAh which supports the cell phone’s hardware with a decent talk time span of 7 hours 30 minutes.
A concern among many was the lack of expandable memory although a 32GB internal memory is has been provided. Out of which 25GB is available for general use and 1.5GB reserved for applications. Two micro sim card slots have been provided so as to allow dual sim functionality. Yamaha Amplifier to enhance the audio and video experience.
Provided with superior primary camera of 16MP with led flash and a front camera of 8MP the device is capable of HD recording at 30fps and superior image capture quality.
Micromax may have done wonders with the Canvas Knight, packed amazing hardware into a slim smartphone. With all new releases coming with the Android Kitkat 4.4, this device may seem to be a little outdated with the Android 4.2 JellyBean operating system.
Price of Indian Rupees 19,999/- makes it an extremely competitive device and also the best smartphone under 20,000. The competitors at this point of time may be the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 Duos or Sony Xperia C.
If your budget is under 15,000 INR have a look at the Motorola Moto G, this may seem to be the right smartphone for you.
