Micromax Enters Big Boy Territory With a Windows Phone

Browse This Page

The biggest Indian mobile company is having quite a good year. According to several leads, Micromax has just decided to cross the Rs. 20K point and enter into the premium segment with a Windows phone. Microsoft identified Micromax as one of its hardware partners at its build conference.

The phone is reported to be have a 5-inch full HD 1080p screen. The battery stands at 2600 MaH. It is expected to be priced around 23,000-25,000 INR.

In a first for Micromax, the Smartphone will be powered by Snapdragon 800 chipset with 2GB RAM. It will run Windows 8.1 operating system.

The main camera is a 13 megapixel shooter with LED flash. The selfie shooter is a 5 megapixel camera. The phone will have 16 GB of internal memory expandable to 64 GB which is a welcome step.

The specs look pretty impressive for a Micromax Windows phone. We hope to bring you a hands on review, as soon as we can, to tell you if it’s worth the glitter.


Do you think the Micromax should make a Windows phone?

    • SujeeshJoy

      PARASHAR_TARUN Exactly its my point too !! why does one want to risk his money for such ill customer oriented company !

    • SujeeshJoy

      There’s no Nokia Machi !! its all Microsoft from now !

    • SujeeshJoy

      The Price point sucks ! no one would ever want to invest in a company which has substandard services at a premium cost ! thumbs down ..

      Learn from Motorola how they are able to come up with competetive pricing without compromising quality

    • Vikas Kurup

      thats good…atleast #htc and #nokia will reduce their ridiculous prices….#micromax get #IOS too…lol!!!!

    • nishantrokzz

      For windows quad core mediatek chipset such as mt6589 with 1 gigs of ram enough #LowRamEater……….should be made and launch at 10k micromax that will be considered a good job

      The specs are way too good, but the price….. don’t you think its a bit high ???? I think price of around 17 -18000 will be good for this….
