However, despite Micromax claiming that the A116 Canvas HD has now started to retail, none of the popular shopping sites such indiatimes.com, homeshop18.com, infibeam.com, flipkart.com, saholic.com or even snapdeal.com are offering this smartphone for sale online.
Commenting on the status of fresh stocks, Tony Navin, Vice President, Business Development, Snapdeal.com informed NDTV Gadgets, "We plan to hold discussion with Micromax for the next phase of the campaign after we have shipped all the pre-booked smartphones."
Micromax A116 Canvas HD comes with 5-inch HD IPS screen that sports 720x1280 resolution and a colour depth of 16.7 million. Micromax A116 Canvas HD is powered by MediaTek's MT6589 quad-core processor that clocks 1.2GHz. It runs on Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) out of the box and packs in a 2000mAh battery.
