The Canvas Knight has a 5-inch IPS display which has a Full HD resolution. Under the hood is a 2GHz octa-core processor which is a Mediatek unit. It will run on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and will surely be amongst the ones that the company plans on giving the Android 4.4 KitKat treatment. The octa-core processor teams up with a 2GB RAM which aids multitasking.

It has a 16MP auto focus camera at the rear and the same is joined in by a 5MP front facing camera. It is just 7.3mm thick and looks pretty good in side profile. The connectivity package will be  taken care of by 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and aGPS. The internal storage capacity of the smartphone will be 32GB. It has a 2,350 mAh battery under the hood. It will be available in black with gold, white and black colour options.

The smartphone like all its siblings will be a dual-SIM device and will be priced around the Rs 20,000 market and we think Micromax might just breach the Rs. 20,000 mark with this device. It is expected to be launched early next month in India.
