Looks like all Indian smartphone manufacturers want to get ahead of Micromax, as everyone scampers around to bring out the A116 Canvas HD's nearest competitor. Now, Spice Stellar Pinnacle Pro powered by a quad-core processor, running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean is now retailing via an e-commerce site. The smartphone is up on Saholic.com for Rs 14,990, but the site has put up a "6 business days" delivery period. The first quad-core offering from Spice, the Stellar pro MI-535 is being touted as a likely competitor to Micromax's A116 Canvas HD, which is priced at Rs 14,000. Another handset from Zen the Ultrafone 701 HD; priced at Rs 12,000 falls in the same segment.

Here's a quick look the Pinnacle Pro Mi 535's tech specs:

  • 5.3" IPS display having 540x960 pixels.
  • Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) OS.
  • 1.2 GHz quad-core processor.

On paper, the Stellar Pinnacle Pro Mi-535 has an edge over the A116 Canvas HD with a better display, bigger internal storage, a better battery, and Android 4.2 OS supprt (Micromax's A16 Canvas HD runs  Android 4.1 out of the box). However, Spice Pinnacle Pro Mi-535's price tag is tad expensive when compared with its competition. That being said, its real life performance will be a better way to judge its future in the mid-range quad-core handset market.
