Tablets, Phablets, High End Smartphones, Affordable Smartphones, Micromax is making its dent all over. In its latest attempt, the company has got everything in line to come out with a face lifted version of the A116 Canvas HD. The news got further air when recently the device, named  A 116i Canvas HD, was spotted on sale on many Indian online retail stores for Rs 12,090. There are not many significant updates as compared to its previous generation apart from upgrade of operating system to Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Here are the key specifications and features of the device-

Micromax-Canvas-A116i-300x300




Display- 5-inch 720p display

Processor, Chipset and RAM- 1.2GHz quad-core MT6589 SoC paired with PowerVR SGX 544 GPU and 1GB of RAM.

Camera- 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and 2 MP VGA front facing camera

Memory- 4GB of internal memory, out of which 1.77GB can be used. It can be further extended up to32GB via microSD card.

Battery-  2,000mAh Li ion

Connectivity- Dual-SIM card support, 3G, Wi-Fi

Operating System- Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

There is no official press release or communication about the launch of the device. Prices on various online retail portals also range between Rs 12,000-13,500. However, Micromax’s move to launch the facelift of a device without making any meaningful modifications or changes seems surprising. Instead of this, they could have easily come up with an operating system update in the already existing phone.

Our Take: Yes, its nothing new but an updated version which costs the same. Looking at the solid specifications and logic, it looks more of a marketing gimmick to have come out with a new launch rather than doing something new. Whichever way it is, the phone makes for a decent budget smartphone. Hence, if you were looking for owning an Android based, decent and affordable smartphone device, your search may end with Micromax’s A 116i Canvas HD.
