Indian smartphone manufacturer Micromax, whose CEO has resigned recently, is readying a new top-end model called Canvas Turbo. The company is said to be working on this device to take on the likes of Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One, LG G2 and Sony Xperia Z1.
Tech website MMXNewscaster has leaked specifications of this upcoming device.
According to an image released by MMXNewscaster, the upcoming Canvas Turbo will have a 5-inch screen with Full HD (1920x1080p) resolution. Top end smartphones today have flagship models with Full HD displays. The image also shows a 5MP front camera and dual-sim functionality. The volume rocker and power/lock key are placed on the right side, microUSB port on top and audio jack at the bottom.
Another image posted on the same website shows the rear panel of the device, highlighting its 13MP rear camera with LED flash.
Previously leaked details of the Canvas Turbo include a Mediatek MT6589T chipset with 1.5GHz quad-core processor and 357MHz GPU, 32GB internal storage and 64GB microSD card support. This handset will come with Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) out of the box, but it is speculated that the manufacturer will release the Android 4.3 update soon after the launch.
It is also speculated to have 1GB RAM, while most top Android smartphones today have 2GB RAM.
It is rumoured that Micromax will launch the Canvas Turbo in November, though the price is not yet known. The most expensive handset by the company is Canvas Doodle 2, priced at Rs 19,990.
