Micromax Testing Android 4.3 With Canvas HD Update Coming Soon

Browse This Page

Micromax has been lambasted by consumers in the past for not following up with software updates for their devices. That might change soon.

A tweet by regular @MMXNewscaster reveals an image of the Canvas HD A116 running the recently revealed Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. If true, this would please all Micromax consumers.

 

At its Canvas 4 launch event, Micromax focused on the importance of consumer satisfaction and introduced the 7-day service center policy to improve its service. Providing regular software updates should be the next step forward for the company if it wants to really establish itself as a brand that can compete with the big players. We expect the Android 4.3 update for the Canvas 4 after the Canvas HD update is rolled out.

If we talk about Android 4.3 itself, the new operating system will feature multi-user restricted profiles. This will let users control access to contents and apps per user—so parents, for example, can control which applications their kids can access. When accessed from restricted profiles, applications behave differently. On stage, Hugo Barra demonstrated this by showing a puzzle game whose in-app purchase functionality was automatically disabled when it was accessed on the kid’s restricted profile.

Other features include built-in OpenGL ES 3.0 support, DRM APIs for providing hardware-based encryption for protecting content, which will allow it to provide 1080p video to its tablets. The first partner is Netflix, which supports 1080p HD streaming. The Nexus 7 is the first device to support it.

Android 4.3 also introduces many other features, including support for Bluetooth Smart devices, background Wi-Fi location, more language support and “easier text input.”

The Micromax Canvas HD sports a 5 inch HD display with a screen resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels backed by a MediaTek’s MT6589 Cortex-A7 SoC quad-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz. The Canvas HD launched with Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 operating system.

When contacted nearest MMX Service center in Bangalore, they say that they do not consider/perform 4.2 update for Canvas HD. Can you check how can we get this updated to 4.2, and eventually to 4.3. I do not want to try unreliable stock rom updates

It can be fake... Android version could be edited from version 4.1.2 to version 4.3 by editing it in the build.prop.

Glad to see Micromax taking big steps to be an established brand. Wouldn't be surprised to it as a global competitor to Samsung and Apple within 5 to 8 years, that is, if they keep up this good work.

It is written in articles that when u upgrade it the option of keeping wifi on in background is automatically kept OFF. So u have to tick the option to keep wifi ON even after swtiching wifi OFF. Hope I'm right..
