Micromax A116 Canvas HD has been the ‘most in demand’ phone in history of Micromax company. As we had reported earlier that the phone will be initially available for sale exclusively on Micromax official website on Februrary 14, but due to limited quantity of stocks, the phone is already sold out! Literally, no stock is left. Micromax partnered with online retailer Snapdeal to process orders/purchases of Canvas HD, but the order page currently displays in bold – SOLD OUT. We don’t know how many phones were sold in actual and how many of quantities were available for sale, so we can’t actually comment on the ‘amount of demand’ thing or whether this is marketing tactics. We’ve reached out to Micromax for official words on the quantity of stocks that were up for sale, and we’re awaiting their reply.
Micromax A116 Canvas HD price is set at Rs.13,990 INR.

We expect the phone to be available soon in stores as well as on online shopping sites, probably by February 22.
