Micromax brings its all new octa-core smartphone dubbed Canvas Knight Cameo A290 to the Indian market for Rs 11,490. This new budget smartphone looks like a toned down version of the Canvas Knight flagship, and also runs the latest Android flavour of 4.4 KitKat, like some recent Micromax phones.
The Knight Cameo is powered by 1.4GHz octa-core processor coupled with 1GB of RAM. It sports a 4.7-inch IPS display featuring 1280 x 720 pixels of resolution. On the camera front, it gets an 8MP rear shooter with flash and 5MP front-facing camera. The 8GB onboard storage is expandable up to 32GB.
The Cameo supports a slew of connectivity options like 3G, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi and USB. All of this is fuelled by a 2,000 mAh battery. That battery is very similar to the Canvas Knight A350 review which didn't exactly have the best battery life in the market, and we do hope that Micromax has managed to implement better power saving features in the Cameo.
Going by the price bracket, it could compete with the Moto G, and the Asus Zenfone 5, and it could be one of the first octa-core smartphones to become mainstream given the price. So far we have only seen the likes of Intex and WickedLeak launch octa-core phones in this price range. The Cameo definitely has the edge among that bunch.
