Status update on the Micromax Mobile facebook page says that the Micromax A116 Canvas HD bookings will start from 14th Feb 2013. For those eagerly waiting you can book from 14th but still no word as to when it will be dispatched.
Update: Micromax have changed the image which now says Available from 14th Feb 2013. Now that’s good news!
There was news that the A116 will be delayed cause of the Chinese New year and that the A116 will be available by Feb end. It did come as a surprise to me as MMX was silent for quite some time regarding the Canvas HD and now suddenly starts the booking process on Valentine’s Day.
Probably the news of Chinese players like the UMI and JiaYu entering the Indian markets might have forced the company to start the sales ASAP. Anyway it’s good news for those looking to buy the Micromax A116.
The MMX A116 comes powered by quad core 1.2 GHz processor with 1GB RAM and 4 gigs of internal storage. The screen is 5 inches with 1280×720 pixels resolution. The handset runs on Android 4.1 and comes with an 8MP auto focus camera with LED and a front camera for video calls. The battery is of a 2100 mAh capacity.
No need to get excited as it’s just the booking process the handset will not be available until end of Feb 2013.
