The Micromax Canvas HD A116i runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, with the listing claiming that the company plans to roll-out an update to Android 4.2.1 soon. Much like the Canvas HD, it is a dual-SIM device with support for GSM+GSM. The Canvas HD A116i is powered by a MediaTek's MT6589 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz along with PowerVR SGX544 GPU and 1GB of RAM. The smartphone features a 5-inch display with a resolution of 720x1280 pixels and boasts of a pixel density of 294ppi.
For optics, there is an 8-megapixel rear shooter with LED flash and 4X zoom, and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. There is 4GB of inbuilt storage, which is further expandable up to 32GB via microSD card. Connectivity options on the smartphone include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPRS, EDGE and 3G. There is no mention of the battery included on the Canvas HD A116i.
Looking at the specifications, we are unable to see the difference between the predecessor and successor, and perhaps the only unmentioned detail, battery capacity, might be the singular change in the models, with the A116i expected to bear a larger battery.
