The smartphone also features a 16-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 2,300mAh battery that the company claims is good enough for eight hours of talktime and 210 hours on standby mode.
Connectivity options include dual-SIM card slots, 3G support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and on the software front, the smartphone runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
The e-commerce site claims that the device will be delivered in 5-6 business days and is also offering EMI schemes starting at Rs 2,144 per month. This means an official launch by the company is not that far off.
With such a price tag and specifications, the Canvas Gold A300 will be up against the likes of other octa-core powered smartphones like the recently launched Alcatel One Touch Idol X+ and the Panasonic P81 among others.
