Micromax was once the numero-uno mobile phone brand in the Indian market but since the entry of Chinese brands such as Xiaomi, Vivo, Oppo and more, the brand lost its grip and slowly disappeared from the market. The company is also notoriously known for rebranding an existing phone with its own label and selling it in India.

Micromax can product 20 million phones annually in India and details of its upcoming phones are scarce at the moment. However, rumours indicate that the first wave of Micromax phones will be entry-level smartphones priced between Rs 7,000 and Rs 15,000. These phones will be powered by MediaTek chipsets as has been reported previously and more details will be revealed closer to the launch date.
