        U can still do that coz canvas phones are available under the name of qmobile in pakistan…same phones of micromax coz they probably have the same odm from china named tinno shenzen…

          oh no sir … the Qmobile phones here are of TERRIBLE quality!

          someone on these forums suggested that BLU VIVO AIR was equivalent to Qmobile Noir A7 but when i compared their specs , it was a TOTAL nightmare!
          not only does the blu look gorgeous , but its waayyy more powerful than its suggested counterpart!
          i only hope Indian and Chinese companies start wide and mass export of all electronics here so that the hegemony of a few cash-hungry companies is broken here and we also get to experience better tech for less…

              Odm is original device manufacturer..who designs and develops phones for other customers like micromax qmobile etc…customer companies just approach them for products and they will offer a set of products….these companies will take them and brand them with their logos…the main reasin why micrimax cannot come to pakistan is the odm has already licensed the devices to qmobile for pakistan and micromax cannot enter pakistan with same models

      You are wrong sir micromax has their own manufacturing facility for tvs and tablets in India and every tv and tablet by them in the market is made in India…infact they make some mobiles too in that plant but not many models…..

          Having same models in myphone doesn’t mean rebranding sir…they share the same odm named tinno shenzen these phones doesnt belong to myphone or wiko or qmobile in pakistan or someone else..they belong to an odm and micromax and others will approach them for products…though i accept that micromax has rebranded coolpad series…no one rebrands anyone and thats the truth

        yup. hdmi 1.4 won’t support full 60fps frame rate, which is the new standard at 4k and up
