We carry out some synthetic benchmark tests on Micromax's most powerful smartphone that runs on a true octa-core MediaTek processor.
Micromax announced the Canvas Knight just a few days back and as we know the smartphone runs on a MediaTek Tru Octa-Core MT6592T processor clocked at 2GHz and comes with ARM Mali450 GPU. It has 2GB of RAM, a 5-inch FHD IPS display, a 16MP rear camera, an 8MP front camera, 32GB of internal storage and a 2350mAh battery. The Canvas Knight runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box.
The new Canvas Knight looks quite tall as compared to the Nexus 5
We got our hands on the device and thought of running some benchmark tests to see how the smartphone performs in terms of raw hardware performance.
For testing we used Antutu, Smartbench 2012, 3DMark and Quadrant and compared it with some other smartphones in the same price segment.
The preliminary benchmark tests do indicate that the Canvas Knight can perform the simpler day to day tasks quite well. But when it comes to productivity and gaming, the Knight does seem to lag behind phones like Moto G and even the Nexus 4 which was announced more than a year ago.
Check out the specs comparison of the Micromax Canvas Knight over here. Stay tuned for a full-on review of the Micromax Canvas Knight.
