Now, a report by Droid Goblin claims that the CyanogenMod will be the default firmware of the yet to be announced Micromax Canvas 5 smartphone. It also reveals the possible specifications of the device suggesting that the device will feature a 5 inch FHD display with 1920×1080 pixel resolution and employ an octa-core MediaTek MT67xx processor. The report adds on that the handset will use 2 GB of RAM and an ample 16 GB of native storage capacity that can be expanded further via a micro SD card.

On the imaging front, the Micromax Canvas 5 will reportedly arrive with a new 18 MP primary camera that is accompanied by a 5 MP front facing selfie camera. It is claimed that the handset will feature a solid aluminum body as in the Canvas 4 Plus. The report also suggests that the Canvas 5 will be fueled by Android 4.4.4 KitKat platform in CyanogenMod 11S flavor and be priced around Rs 22,000.

For now, we do not have any clue regarding the availability of the Canvas 5 and it is believed that the smartphone will be going official by the end of this year.
