Micromax A350 Canvas Knight might be MyPhone's upcoming Octa-Core Phone

MyPhone usually re-brands smartphones from the US and India. MyPhone Iceberg is the same as BLU Life View while MyPhone Vortex is the same as Micromax Canvas 4.

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 Battery

Micromax A350 Canvas Knight white versionMicromax 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

Micromax A350 Canvas Knight's design is one of the best with affordable smartphones. It is available in black with gold on the sides and measures just 7.3mm in thickness!

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.

Price and Availability

Micromax A350 Canvas Knight will go on sale in Russia first then India before it can come to the Philippines. Some MyPhone developers said that they saw a similarly looking phone in the MyPhone head office though.

This phone might be introduced by MyPhone on March or April and priced between Php14,000 to Php15,000. Are you excited? So are we!

  1. Yung Starmobile Diamond X1 P13,990 lang

  2. di pa nga sure yan

    1. That's why the title goes Micromax A350 Canvas Knight MIGHT be MyPhone's upcoming Octa-Core Phone :)

  3. ^ Yes but the storage space is disappointing. It's somewhere around 2-4gb I think. Also, its screen resolution is only 1280x720 whereas this one is 1920x1080 (Full HD). So in my opinion this one is by far, better. :)

  4. Masyado nang matagal yung March. Much better this February. Sa mga hindi pa nakakaalam, X1 has 8gb rom and card slot up to 64 gb and removable battery. HD ginamit nila para mabawasan and lags. Kahit octacore pa yan, meron pa ring lag yan. Gusto ko etong Canvas knight Kahit 32gb rom, no card slot, non-removable battery. At sana yung pagka full-HD eh hindi maka apekto sa performance ng phone.

  5. I think its GPU is MALI450-MP4 clocked at 700Mhz for MT5692. MT6592 can be clocked from 1.7Ghz up to 2.0Ghz.

    1. I hope MyPhone can opt for the faster one.

    2. Sana nga kasi ang cherry mobile may teaser sa FB nila. And one of the bloggers got in touched with CM and confirmed that they will release a model better than their previous releases. That means, an 8-core perhaps? I'll stay tuned to this. :)

  6. OTG supported ba ito admin? tnx

  7. If its between 12-15k, international brand offerings are near and have better choices... besides, octacore processor is just hypes currently.. most apps arent design for it yet. better GPU, LTE, external mem, Glonas, nfc, removable batt, etc offerings from other brands that have nearer costs are wiser choice...
