The Micromax A116 update would also be available from the Micromax Service Centers where the users can take their devices to get it flashed to Android 4.2 without any cost.
The Android 4.2.1 update for the A116 Canvas HD brings faster performance, Quick Settings, semi-transparent notification panel, Panorama in the camera and better GPS lock. In addition the update has also brought Over-the-Air (OTA) software update functionality so that you don’t need to visit service centers every time to update the phone.
