This time, Micromax announced its first ever true OCTA-CORE smartphone in Russia. If what I heard from a few MyPhone developers are true, we might be looking at the upcoming octa-core smartphone that MyPhone will offer in the Philippines.
Here's how Micromax A350 Canvas Knight looks like:

Processor, Memory and BatteryMicromax A350 Canvas Knight is expected to run on MediaTek's MT6592 octa-core processor. Some said it will be clocked at 2GHz but the official speed of MT6592 is 1.7GHz - that's still very fast and powerful!
The octa-core processor will be aided by Mali-400 MP4 for graphics processing and 2GB of RAM for running HD games and resource intensive apps smoothly.
Just like Iceberg Mini, Micromax A350 Canvas Knight might not have a micro SD card slot but it does have 32GB of internal storage. The only negative thing about it is the non-removable battery with 2,350mAh rating only.
Design, Display and Camera
The display is a stunning full HD IPS panel - yes, that's 1080p! I's sure it's scratch resistant too but we don't have the name of the particular glass yet.
The cameras are also a step higher than previous models at 16 megapixels (not interpolated, looking at you Starmobile!). The camera is slightly protruding though. For the front camera, there's a 5MP shooter that will take high quality selfies.
