So, here comes another octa core device from Micromax. Earlier we have Canvas knight, Canvas Gold with us featuring True Octa core processor by Mediatek and now Canvas knight Cameo will feature the same. Hold ON! It won’t be a high-end device as gold or knight is. It’s a slightly degrade version of canvas knight and looks bit same as that of canvas knight.
The model number of the device is A290 and has been promoted in Roobaroo Song video released by Micromax officially. The song has been sung in 9 different languages by 10 artists.
We saw this phone being listed on few online shopping sites with all the specifications listed. The phone is a budget octa core device under Rs. 13,000. Price is expected to be lowered down a bit as the phone doesn’t offer that much good specs that it should be priced around Rs. 13,000.
As the trend of kitkat operating system in observed in all the recently launched MMX devices, this device features the same Android 4.4.2 Kitkat operating system out of the box.
Cameo is a dual SIM smartphone supporting 3G network. The phone features a 4.7 inch screen with 720p screen resolution. 5 inch is the standard size used in most of the Micromax devices however 4.7 inch looks normal and it is easy to carry a smartphone with such screen size.
Micromax Cameo runs on 1.4GHz Octa-core processor with 1GB RAM. The processor and the RAM combination is slightly mismatching, RAM with octa core processor must be>1GB in my point of view. ROM: 8GB
It is powered with a battery of battery capacity 2010mAh claiming a talktime of 9 hours and stand by time of 280 hours.
Coming to the camera part, Rear camera is of 8MP while the front is of 5MP and supports HD video recording and playback as well.
