Micromax has been in a lot of news recently from unexpected demand for its Canvas Android phones to its legal tussle with Ericsson over patent infringement for over 100 crores . The company increased the price of Canvas HD A116 to Rs.14499 from Rs.13990 due to increase in customs duty. Now the stocks of the Canvas HD are finally hitting retail stores and we could find it at few retail shops in Chennai. The retail packaging has got a fresh new look.
Here is the old packaging from our unboxing
We are not sure if the white version alone has the new packaging or it applies to the black one as well.
The MRP printed on the box is Rs.17499 and the market price originally announced by Micromax was Rs.13990 and increased to Rs.14499 due to change in import duty set by government. Shops are selling it for around Rs.15000.
The back of the phone seems to have matt finish rather than the glossy finish in the unit we reviewed.
