The smartphone is powered by a MediaTek MT6589 1.2GHz quad core processor. It is one of the most power efficient chips in the market since it is manufactured using a 28nm process. The phone also has a PowerVR Series5XT GPU and has 1GB of RAM. The CPU and GPU are more than enough to perform everyday tasks smoothly and to run HD games. The A116 Canvas HD boots Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but Micromax has included some changes in the UI including quick toggles in the notification drawer. The phone comes equipped with a 2100mAh battery.

Other features of the phone include:
  • 5-inch IPS LCD with a resolution of 1280 x 720
  • Dual-SIM, 3G, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi hotspot
  • GPS with GLONASS and A-GPS
  • Bluetooth with A2DP
  • 8MP rear camera with LED flash with night mode and 4x zoom, and VGA front camera
  • 4GB of internal storage and supports microSD card up to 32GB
The Micromax A116 Canvas HD is a very popular phone as seen in our poll from last month. Launched in late January, it was scheduled to be launched in the first week of February, but there were some delays in the market availability of the handset. However, Micromax announced last week that the phone would be launched on Valentine's Day and the company has made the deadline this time around

Stay tuned for a full-fledged review of the handset. In the meantime, check out the specifications review of the A116 Canvas HD.
