Exclusive : 7 Micromax Windows Phone Devices in the Coming Months

Browse This Page

Recently Micromax was  in the news for rumors around a Windows Phone device, well turns out they are not only true but there is more to the game. Sources close to iGyaan and top brass at Micromax confirm that not only is the company working on launching windows phone handsets, they will launch handsets ranging from Rs. 7000 and up to Rs. 25000 effective.

These 7 to 8 handsets will be launched within the next few months, and Microsoft is said to be pushing for the quick release and promotion of the handsets. There is long term tie up between Micromax and Microsoft, and the redmond based computing giant is interested in cross promoting the products for which Micromax has been well funded by Microsoft.

Sources also tell us that both companies have invested in design and most of the Micromax Windows Phones will be seen with a unibody design, with a lot of help provided by designers and engineers from Nokia. As of today, apart from Nokia no other manufacturer is manufacturing Windows Phone handsets as a global product. Micromax Windows Phones will be sold in India and overseas in existing Micromax markets.

Micromax has been eyeing the Windows Phone market since the beginning of the operating system, and the first positive step was the announcement of the Indian manufacturer as a partner at the Microsoft Build conference earlier this year.

New Micromax CEO Vineet Taneja will host the first round of launches of Micromax Windows Phone devices in the coming week, which might see more than one Windows Phone device from Micromax being launched. The flagship phone from the Indian manufacturer is said to have a 5 inch 1920 x 1080p display, 2GB RAM, a 13 MP + 5 MP camera combination, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset and is said to be priced at Rs. 25000 for a 16GB storage and expandability via micro SD.

Micromax’s flagship is expected to have a  metal unibody design with Dual Sim capabilities and micro SD card expansion via sim tray style slots, as seen in the HTC One M8. The design of the phone is also said to mimic the HTC lineage with round edges and unibody structure.

We won’t know what will actually unfold until the new CEO announces the handsets, however it looks like the budget game might get really interesting going forward.

    We have seen Samsung and HTC make windows phone and they had problems with the UI lagging and hanging, same as that we once used to see with android phones.
    Nokia was the only company which was able to make good windows phones.
    I really want Micromax to do a good or even a better job than Nokia, but I guess thats just wishful thinking

    Life of a Micromax is around 6 months before the nightmare begins. You should buy it if you are not enraged easily. It pushes you to the limits for how much you can bear...

    Snapdragon 800 or 801..metal or plastic body..what really matters is the real world usability..optimum software tweaking has to be done for a phone of such caliber.If micromax succeed then we have a home grown brand making us confident enough to say adios to the plagued international brands here.

    Definitely yes, research says windows will have bigger market share then apple in 2015. The pace at which windows phone is evolving is much faster then apple or android. Having more manufacturers for windows is a big plus.
