India's leading smartphone manufacturer, Micromax forayed into the Russian market just a couple of days ago. The company plans to release at least 14 devices in the new market. But, out of all the devices that were showcased at the Russia event, two smartphones called the Micromax Canvas Knight A350 and Canvas Tube A118R are yet to be announced in the native market.
According to the technology site AndroidOS, these devices will be launched in the Indian market in the coming few weeks. However, the company has not spoken about the official release of these devices in the domestic market as of now. Chances are that, it might as well launch these smartphones in both the countries on the same day. But it is just a wild guess, altogether.
The two smartphones unveiled at the Russian event, which are likely to be launched in India are the Micromax Canvas Knight A350 and Canvas Tube A118R.
Specs-wise, the mid-range Micromax Canvas Tube A118R will come with a 5.5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display, 1.2 GHz quad-core processor (probably from MediaTek). It will run on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system. The company has not disclosed the internal storage capacity of the device but there will be a microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB). The Canvas Tube A118R features a 8-megapixel rear camera with autofocus and LED flash and a 2-megapixel front facing snapper. Other highlights of the smartphone include: 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity, along with Bluetooth, FM Radio, 3.5mm audio jack and 2,300 mAh battery.
On the other hand, the high-end Canvas Knight A350 will come packed with a 5-inch Full HD display. It would be powered by a 2GHz 8-core processor which will be backed by 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory, and will run on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. One can find a massive 16-megapixel camera sensor placed on the rear-back with a dual LED Flash and a 5-megapixel front-facing snapper for taking selfies and video conferencing. The smartphone will be powered by a 2,350mAh battery.
It seems the maker of the Canvas Turbo smartphone has all its plans ironed out pretty straight. The company kick-started the year by announcing its latest hybrid tablet called LapTab at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2014, in Las Vegas. It has already launched a number of devices in the domestic market including the Canvas Turbo Mini, Canvas XL, MAd A94 and more.
