Flipkart MarQ M3 Smart Details
The first-ever phone from Flipkart has been subject to some leaks. As a result, a few details about the MarQ M3 Smart have been making the rounds online. Aside from that, Flipkart has divulged some key details about its first-ever smartphone.

If the teaser posters are anything to go by, the phone will have a U-shaped notch. The bottom notch is comparatively thicker like in most budget smartphones. Moreover, the phone’s HD+ screen resolution also suggests that it will be a budget segment handset. In the photography department, the MarQ M3 Smart houses a dual-camera setup. It draws its juices from a 5,000mAh battery.
Furthermore, the phone could pack a 1.6GHz octa-core processor, paired with 2GB of RAM, according to a report from Price Baba. The built-in storage is expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card.

Regrettably, details about the sale date are still few and far between. Flipkart will be hosting the Big Billion Days sale from October 7 to October 12.
