hey dude..micromax a56 is the clone of coolpad a7019. see this.
http://s8.taobao.com/search?spm=a230...&cm_id=&pm_id=

Micromax A57 has 1ghz processor rather tha 800mhz so it can't be the clone of coolpad a7019 cuz it has 800mhz processor.

What name do you get when you connect your device to pc in fastboot mode.(fastboot devices)>>> it will be the clone of your device.
I got the name of coolpad a7019 when i connected my device in fastboot mode to pc.
