Well, today, we hear some more whispers about the alleged device. It is said to be named "Micromax Canvas 5" and will sport a 5" screen. Additional specs are claimed to be an octa-core MediaTek CPU, 2 GB of ram, 16 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, and an impressive 18 MP camera.
The CM mod that's going to run the show will be custom-built for the device on top of Android 4.4.4 Kit-Kat. Unfortunately, details, such as CPU clock and battery capacity, are yet veiled in mystery, but the price tag is said to be below $360.

Such competition is much needed IMO. So it would prevent other manufacturers like samsung, sony, htc to sell low specs product at high price. I hv noticed many times when samsung use videocore processor in its mobile it doesn't even metion its name only you will find on box is 1.2 ghz dual core processor that's it.

But micromax is basically cheap chinese phones with micromax brand... Well known chinese OEMs like xiaomi , huwaei offer more better value for the money.... Moto too is doing good with moto g and e... I hope one day indian OEMs will manufacture or atleast design their smartphones on own...

Day is not far when device makers will give us only hardware and we will have option to install any OS.

won't developers that day be like doomed? don't count on great optimization then, but i'm just saying. :o like, there could be a lot of hardware varieties for every OS out there, and developers would need to optimize the apps for them, and i think it won't be that easy... :(

IMO all re-branders should do this.
