Samsung has been in the news for the past few weeks for the launch of its Galaxy Note 3, while Micromax has been relatively quiet. Its last top-end smartphone was Canvas Doodle 2, which was launched in July.
It is now rumoured that Micromax is gearing up to launch a new top-of-the-line smartphone in November, which is expected to be named Canvas Turbo. And the specifications of this device have leaked already, courtesy technology website DroidNext.
The report claims that the phone will have a full HD display (resolution of 1920x1080p). Similar resolution is already a standard feature in all top-end Android smartphones and phablets today, including Samsung Galaxy S4 and Note 3, HTC One, Sony Xperia Z1 and Z Ultra as well as LG G2 and G Pro etc. Entire current crop of Micromax phones has maximum screen resolution of 1280x720p only.
The upcoming Micromax Canvas Turbo is said to have a Mediatek MT6589T chipset, with a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and 357MHz GPU. 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.
This phone is also said to have a 13MP rear camera, 5MP front unit, 32GB internal storage and 64GB microSD card support. It is speculated to have 1GB RAM, while most top Android smartphones today have 2GB RAM.
