Cyanogenmod powered Micromax phone rumors say it's going to be a powerful phablet

A couple of weeks ago, we heard about Cyanogen Inc. partnering up with India's largest phone OEM – Micromax, in order to help deliver a Cyanogenmod powered device to the market, much like it did with Oppo and OnePlus before. The move comes in the wake of Google pushing its own Android One program in the country, which aims to assist manufacturers in creating affordable, mid-class devices.

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.
