The newest member of the Micromax Canvas family, the Canvas Gold A300 is apparently up for pre-order, for price of Rs 24,000 on Infibeam. The handset sports an octa-core processor, runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat and comes with a 5.5 inch 1080p screen; all of which is sandwiched into that metal-clad, gold finished construction that should appeal to a lot Indian buyers.
Infibeam claims that the handset is not only up for pre-order, but also in stock which is strange because the handset has not even listed the phone on its own website yet. The retailer even promises free shipping in 5-6 days.
Inside the phone you will find a (MediaTek) 2GHz octa-core processor coupled with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory. 25GB is available for mass storage while, 1GB has been allotted for app installations. The phone includes a 16MP primary camera and also sports large 5MP snapper on the front for all those video calls and selfies.
Powering all this is a lowly 2300mAh battery which considering the handset's dual-SIM functionality will not last too long.
All-in-all Micromax seems to offer a pretty competitive package, even though we do not have complete details of the handset just yet.
