Indian mobile device maker, Micromax, has announced the launch of its new flagship Android smartphone, the Canvas Knight. The device is Micromax’s first true octa-core processor-based smartphone and is priced at Rs 19,999. Even though this is Micromax’s first octa-core based smartphone, devices from other brands like Gionee, Intex and iBerry have already been in the market since last year.

Nevertheless, Micromax has tried to differentiate the Canvas Knight from the competition. The device gets an aluminium unibody design that is both good looking and sturdy. Along with this, Canvas Knight is also the first flagship single-SIM Android smartphone from the brand.

To power it up, Micromax has made use of a MediaTek MT6592T processor aided by a healthy 2GB RAM, promising fast performance and smoother multi-tasking. For the display, the Canvas Knight gets a 5-inch IPS LCD panel manufactured by Sharp, boasting full HD resolution at 443ppi pixel density, offering better visuals with zero pixilation.

In terms of storage, the Canvas Knight gets 32GB on-board, without an option to expand it further.

At the back, the device gets a 16-megapixel camera with OmniVision’s sensor and a M8 Largan Lens. At the front, the device gets an 8-megapixel camera. Both cameras are capable of recording full HD videos at 30 fps. The smartphone also gets a Yamaha audio processor, promising better sound output and quality.

Commenting on the launch, Rahul Sharma, Co-Founder, Micromax said, “Canvas Knight is another milestone for Micromax to bring the best combination of technology, style and affordability for the masses and with its launch we have yet again raised the bar of affordable innovation in the country.”

The Canvas Knight is based on Android JellyBean 4.2.2 that has been layered with a custom user interface by Micromax. In terms of pre-loaded applications, the device comes with BBM and Hike for instant messaging, Spuul for free movies and TV Shows, Kingsoft Office to create and edit documents on-the-go, and Micromax’s very own M!Security app for anti-theft and anti-virus protection, to name a few.

The Micromax Canvas Knight is available for sale throughout the country, and will be available exclusively from its online store starting today, in three different colour variants.
