Micromax Allegedly Working On Octa-Core Canvas A240

After the disappointing reveal of the Canvas 4 (with the device's highlight being a 5 MP front camera and... Blow-to-unlock feature), Indian phone selling (they don't exactly qualify as phone maker) is allegedly working on a new octa-core Canvas model dubbed the A240.

The Micromax Canvas A240, the would-be successor to the poorly-received Canvas 4, is allegedly in the works and reportedly packs MediaTek's new octa-core MT6592 SoC. The MT6592 is receiving its fair share of limelight today, with leaked benchmarks showing off the might of the chipset, while a leaked road-map reveals the use of next-generation PowerVR SGX600 Rogue GPU, a first for mobile devices, in the upcoming "true" octa-core chipset.
