For this hefty pricing, you will get a 5.5-inch full HD display, 2GHz octa-core processor (most likely from MediaTek), Android 4.4.2, and 2300 mAh battery. On the imaging front, Micromax has included a 16MP auto-focus rear camera sensor from Sony with LED flash and a 5MP front shooter.
In addition, the Canvas Gold A300 packs dual-SIM support, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and 3G.
While the specifications (apart from the just 2300 mAh battery) are quite decent, we doubt if the consumers will be willing to spend 24K on a Micromax smartphone. Despite being the second biggest smartphone vendor in the country, the company is yet to shed the tag of being a non-premium smartphone maker.
The phone will be competing with the likes of Gionee Elife E7, Huawei Honor 3X G750, Xperia T2 Ultra, and Alcatel One Touch Idol X+ in the country.
We are still waiting for the official launch, which could happen anytime over the coming week.
