Last month, leading handset manufacturer Micromax announced the launch of Canvas HD at a price tag of Rs 13,990. Soon as the online availability of the device was announced, the phablet marked a record in sales by selling over 9000 units in 24 hours.
However, after the that there was no news from the manufacturer, as to when the ordered devices will be shipped. In the last week of February, Micromax informed Gizbot that the stocks will be back in the first week of March. However, now the first week is about to end, and there is no news on the same.
With the question of 'Where is Canvas HD?' rubbing the mind, Gizbot tried contacting Micromax and via an inside resource, has now got an exclusive information for those waiting for the handset to arrive on their doorsteps and retail stores.
As per the information revealed by the inside source, Micromax has just begun shipping all the pending pre-order and also A116 Canvas HD will be available on retail stores, soon after the pending shipments are cleared.
Unfortunately, the source was not able to provide a specific date on when Canvas HD will reach Indian stores, however, things would be more clear by next week.
As far as specs are concerned, Canvas HD houses a 5 inch HD IPS capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, 1.2GHz quad core MediaTek MT6589 processor, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, 8MP rear camera, VGA front camera for video calling, 4GB internal storage, 1GB RAM, micro SD card slot supporting up to 32GB additional storage, 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS/A-GPS and a 2,100 mAh battery.
Further, A116 Canvas HD is loaded with applications including M!Store, M!Buddy, M!SMS, M!Zone and Hook Up.
It can be said that Micromax has made a revolution in the budget market by launching a Jelly Bean based device with quad core processor and HD display. Following the launch of Canvas HD, several India based manufacturers have come up with similar offerings including Wickedleak Wammy Passion Y HD, Lava Xolo A1000 and more.
Anyways, this information should sound great for those consumers who are waiting to buy Canvas HD. For more updates on the phablet, stay tuned to Gizbot.
