Micromax Canvas 5 Rumored to Pack 18 Megapixel Camera, Octa Core Processor and Run CyanogenMod

The next Micromax phone is expected to be pretty strong and bring novelty, so it’s said to include a kickass camera and lots of other goodies. This model is dubbed Micromax Canvas 5 and it’s expected to be priced below $358.


As far as specs go, the handset features a 5 inch Full HD screen, an octa core MediaTek processor and 2 GB of RAM. There’s 16 GB of storage, a microSD card slot and an 18 megapixel back camera, as well as a 5 megapixel front shooter. The phone runs on CyanogenMod, based on Android 4.4.4 out of the box and we wonder what sort of battery we’ll get here. Anything above 2000 mAh is welcome on a 5 inch phone.

In the meantime Micromax has launched the interesting Canvas 4 Plus last month, with a 5 inch HD screen 1.7 GHz MediaTek octa core CPU (the famous MT6592), 16 GB of storage, 1 GB of RAM and 13 MP back camera. That model has a 2000 mAh battery and $273 price tag.
