Today in India, Micromax is introducing their very first Windows Phone devices – the Canvas Win W121 and Canvas Win W092. The Canvas Win W121 and Canvas Win W092 are the first Windows Phone devices from an Indian smartphone manufacturer.
The Canvas Win W121 is a 5-inch device with a wonderful looking HD IPS display, an 8 megapixel rear camera (with LED flash), a 2 megapixel front-facing camera, and 8GB of built in storage with up to 32GB of expandable memory for all your photos, music, and videos. It comes powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 quad-core processor with 1GB of memory – so it’s also very powerful. Additionally, the Canvas Win W121 is equipped with proximity, gravity, and light sensors, an accelerometer, Dual-SIM capability, and comes with a leather finish back panel.
The Canvas Win W092 is a 4-inch device with a IPS WVGA display, an 5 megapixel rear camera (with LED flash), a 0.3 megapixel front-facing camera, and 8GB of built in storage with up to 32GB of expandable memory just like the Canvas Win 121. And just like the Canvas Win W121, the Canvas Win W092 is also powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 quad-core processor and 1GB of memory. It also has Dual-SIM capability as well.
Starting in July 2014, the Canvas Win W121 and Canvas Win W092 will be available in retailers across India for at Rs. 9,500/- and Rs. 6,500/- respectively.
Expanding our partner ecosystem and making it easier to bring Windows Phones to new markets at, more price points remains a top priority. Several of our new partners such as BLU, InFocus, Prestigio and Yezz unveiled Windows Phones 8.1 devices at Computex a few weeks ago. These new devices are a result of the announcement we made back in February at Mobile World Congress with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and $0 Windows for devices smaller than 9-inches in size which has enabled partners to more quickly and efficiently bring Windows Phones in to their mobile devices portfolio.
