Indian smartphone manufacturer Micromax has officially released its latest smartphone, which boasts a tremendous 8 megapixel front facing camera, along with some other interesting specs.
You’d be forgiven for asking just who Micromax are, as many of its handsets have not reached as far as the UK, but this latest effort could finally turn some heads over here in Blighty.
The Canvas Knight packs a multi-task focused 2GHz octa-core processor which can handle dozens of tasks without flinching as well as packing a beautiful SHARP 5” full HD display.
A 2GB RAM finds its way into the handset, besides 32GB internal memory and a 16 megapixel main camera.
Also, Micromax are shouting about the Yamaha audio system built into the handset, similar to the Beats system in the HTC One, which promises to offer unmatched audio quality compared to many other leading smartphones.
The 8 megapixel selfie snapper is obviously a big difference to some of the front facing efforts we are seeing over here, and could tempt UK consumers to invest in the handset rather than some more popular brands.
In terms of cost, you will be looking to shell out just under £200 for the Canvas Knight, with pay monthly deals not available from any UK outlets.
You can pick up the Canvas Knight online though from the Micromax website which can deliver here to the UK, meaning that you’ll only need to pay out for a SIM-only deal to get the handset working.
