Hexa-core Micromax Canvas HD A190 now official

As we reported some days back, the Micromax Canvas HD A190 is finally official with a hexa-core processor and Android KitKat.

On sale with a price tag of 13,500 INR ($225) in India, the smartphone comes with MediaTek’s first hexa-core chipset, i.e., the MT6591. It runs at a clock frequency of 1.5GHz through the 6 cores, and on the Micromax Canvas HD A190, has 1GB of RAM to go along with.

Unlike the Karbonn Titanium Hexa that went on sale some months back, the Canvas HD A190 has only a 5-inch, 720p HD screen. You can expect the performance on this one to be a notch better than the quad-core MediaTek breed, but it might make sense to go for an octa-core phone if you’re looking for one.

Coming back to the Canvas HD A190, the device comes with an 8 mega-pixel rear camera and a 2 mega-pixel front to make for the imaging department on the smartphone. Lastly, a 2000mAh battery powers the internals, with software control taken charge of by Google’s Android v4.4 KitKat.

With octa-core phones such as the Wickedleak Wammy Neo Youth available for just 8,500 INR, would you consider a phone like the Canvas HD A190 as your next?

    Now Indian mobile companies will face real competition. They have looted us till now by rebranding of Chinese handsets. Realistic price of this phone should be Rs 7000 as you are getting good octacore phone in rs 8500.

    My guess is these Hexa Core and LTE phones are arriving too overpriced, even the MTK6592 is turning to be most affordable now almost 1 year after launch.

    Phones like this never make sense why include a hexacore processor if the rest of the phone hardware is straight out of the bargain bin. A budget quad core that isn’t as ugly as this will give you the same performance for less money.
