In July 2015, the company made another addition in its Knight series, launching it as “Micromax Canvas Knight 2”, the successor to the “Canvas Knight” launched last year.
The Micromax Canvas Knight is the company’s first smartphone with a Mediatek octa-core processor. Mobile companies have now started touting the clock speed of the processors, similar to how PC makers used to do earlier. Priced at Rs 16,299 and available in various color options, Canvas Knight 2 is a racy mid-range smartphone with a glass body, heart of metal and mind of a fighter.
Coming over to the specifications of the warrior device, it is a phone with premium features. But does having an HD display and an octa-core processor make it worth your money?
Can it fight its way from rivals like Samsung, Sony, Xiaomi as well as Indian handset makers? Let’s have a look at the features.
Wrapped in a metallic frame, the Micromax Canvas Knight 2 flaunts a 5 inch HD AMOLED display with super strong Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection both on the front and back panel to make it dust and scratch free. A 16m color depth and a pixel resolution of 1280×720 makes the display lively, catching every color in a dazzling form. The great thing about the screen is that it’s quite readable even in bright sunlight.
The Micromax Canvas Knight has a refreshed design with sleek edges that is reminiscent of the Sony Xperia Z or the Apple iPhone 5. The wafer-like 6.3mm sleek and thin design gives it a killer feel with the beautifully made metal slab sandwiched between the gorilla glass on both the sides thus making it sturdy and strong and considerable amongst the slimmest smartphones. The metal frame gives a premium and rich feel adding to the overall style statement.
The handset runs on the Google’s latest software, Android with the sweetest Lollipop 5.0 operating system. To ensure effortless multi-tasking and fast gaming it comes loaded with powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.5 GHz octa core 615 processor and Adreno 405 graphics unit which offers good performance with quick response time.
