Micromax Canvas Silver 5 runs on the 64 bit, 1.2 GHz quad core Snapdragon 410 processor which is similar of the Yu Yuphoria smartphone. The device also have 2 GB of RAM which is DDR3 in its type. The processor is not the best one from the snapdragon, but we expect something better as it is same in the low range phone such as Yu Yuphoria.
