You will soon be able to buy the Micromax A116 as it is now listed on Saholic with a coming soon status. The price tag or the expected release date is not mentioned.
The Micromax canvas HD is the next highly looked for handset that I am sure will create another buzz like the one we have seen and still seeing for the Micromax A110. The A116 USP is HD display, 1GB RAM and 1.2GHz quad core processor.
Micromax also becomes the first Indian company to announce the quad core handset. We might see some more companies joining the bandwagon within few weeks or months. For those waiting for a low cost quad core the A116 is the only option for now.
The Micromax A116 comes with 4GB internal storage with micro SD support. For connectivity there is 3G with HSDPA speed of up to 42Mbps, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 and micro USB port. The camera however is of the same 8MP resolution with LED flash as seen on A110 with a front VGA camera.
The battery is of 2100 mAh capacity that should give about the same backup that the canvas 2 gives. The handset runs on the Jelly Bean 4.1 OS. The price as disclosed at the press release was under Rs. 15,000. So let’s see what Saholic or any other online site will price it at.
