Since most of the specifications are similar to A116 Canvas HD, it includes 5-inch 720p HD display, 1.2GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6589 processor with PowerVR SGX 544 GPU, 1GB of RAM and dual-SIM support. It also features 8MP rear camera with LED flash, VGA front camera, 2,000 mAh battery and connectivity features such as 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and MicroUSB 2.0.

As Micromax has already released Android 4.2 update for A116, so we are not sure why the company has decided to launch A116i instead of just releasing Android 4.2-powered new stock of A116.
