Micromax to launch Canvas Gold A300 and WP8.1 device on Monday

It’s been around 6 months since the launch of the Canvas Knight and Micromax is already planning a new flagship under the Canvas Gold A300 branding. The handset has been leaked with specs and images making the rounds online. What’s more, the device is expected to go official at an event next week along with the company’s first WP8.1 handset.

The Micromax Canvas Gold A300 has been spotted in the wild and via press renders. The image below which comes via Desi Gadgets highlights that the phone will drop the small curves as seen on the Canvas Knight and go back to the design used for the Canvas 4. The front panel appears to have a full glass coating and we’re hoping it’s Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3.
