MarQ M3 Smart smartphone has launched in India, carrying an affordable price tag and sufficiently good specifications. Flipkart has taken the wraps off its new MarQ M3 Smart mobile phone. The affordable smartphone is likely to attract budget-conscious buyers in India. Flipkart is considered one of the leading eCommerce websites in the country. The brand currently offers feature phones, ACs, refrigerators, and even televisions.
However, the MarQ M3 Smart is the brand’s first-ever smartphone to run Android OS. Earlier this week, Flipkart launched a microsite for the smartphone, hinting at its imminent launch. As expected, the Flipkart listing divulged some key details about the handset before its official unveiling. For instance, it indicated that the phone will sport a 6.1-inch display that offers an HD+ resolution. Aside from that, the listing teased 32GB of built-in storage capacity.

The phone was tipped to come with two rear-mounted cameras and a robust 5,000mAh battery that powers up the entire system.
The phone’s original asking price is INR 7,999 (about $108). However, you can get your hands on it for a lowered price of INR 6,299 (about $85) as part of a launch offer. Furthermore, you can choose between two appealing color options including Blue and Black. It will go on sale via Flipkart during the Big Billion Days Sale, which starts on October 7.
