Micromax to launch their first full HD phone?

Going by MMXNewscaster‘s leaks, Indian smartphone giant, Micromax, might well be on their way to launch their first full HD device!

The device, reportedly dubbed Micromax A250 Canvas Turbo, is purported to carry the turbo version of the budget smartphone market’s favorite quad core processor – the MT6589T. This is all we know about the upcoming device yet; however, guestimates include a 13MP rear camera, 16GB or 32GB of storage, 2GB of RAM among other specifications.

    I wonder which re-badged Chinese OEM phone this is.

    Micromax remains a trading company that re-badges existing Chinese OEM phones.

    When will India finally have a genuine electronics manufacturing company?

      True. I don’t see that happening anytime soon though. After all, manufacture is much much cheaper in China with established and upcoming OEMs!

        true India cannot manufacture Silicon Chips.
        It does not have any exposure to Tantalum reserves in India or Africa.
        China rules and is only nation to have huge Tantalum reserves in Africa after US.
        PLA contractors in Africa are game changers for chinas might in 21st century.
        Also if India tries to enter this sector China will attack India as per secret RAW data there is a undertable deal to leave this sector to china by India

          Woh! I really want to say THANK YOU to you, because of educating me through your post. I agree with you that, China is next world super power and we can not even think of competing with China for next 1000 years because of our corrupt government/politicians. I was always asking the question to myself, Why we can not make electronics products in India in spite of we have a huge man power, which can be trained to make electronics products.

    Of course it will be a re-branded Chinese phone and will cost above Rs 20,000 INR 🙁

    In India not a single company is able to design and develop truly indigenous mobile. Even they are not able to assemble parts that are cheaply available. I am waiting for the day when I could proudly own an Indian mobile. until then I am happy with my iris 504q a rebranded Chinese phone. All the phones that are available @ 10k in China are being sold @ 15k in India.

        hi yash how well does the oppo find 5 work. do we need to make any changes for it to work with 3g in india. am not a tech guy juat a lay man.

        • October 7, 2013

          Works just fine. Although I use it on 2G, since Airtel’s 3G service is blocked.

    Actually does anyone have any real evidence that Micromax is rebranding a OEM from China? Or is it just plain talk in bashing down the manufacturing capabilities in India?

      Have you opened the back of any Micromax phone? Does it say made in India?

        You’ll find same thing written on apple iphone’s back. Cause almost all phones are made in china, and yes even iphones…reason is simple i.e. cheap labour…
