In early October there was a news about Micromax joining hands with Cyanogen to launch Micromax handsets running on Cyanogen OS. And now a tech site has revealed that Micromax may launch the Canvas 5 with the popular OS.

The Cyanogen powered smartphone will be called the Micromax Canvas 5 and will feature the MT67XX chipset. It is an octa core chipset. The source does not mention the exact chipset but just a part of it i.e. MT67XX. Most likely it could be MT6795 which is a 64 Bit octa core chipset clocked at 2.2 GHz. And if that be the case it is going to take some time.

Rumors about Micromax Canvas 5 is nothing new, we have been hearing it since October 2013.

The Canvas 5 will sports a 5 inch screen with 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution. There will be 2GB RAM and 16GB storage along with external card support. As far as the camera is concerned it will be a 5MP front facing and an 18MP rear facing with LED flash.

The source also mentions that the Canvas 5 will be priced at under Rs. 22,000. Treat it as a rumor unless officially confirmed.
