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.
I await a 6" dual-sim windows tablet with BT-4, Wi-Di and all other sensors.
This is tactical play by microsoft to reach the lower end and mid range customers using local brands and Nokia phone's are like Nexus in windows series. Waiting for premium models from MMX Canvas win series (Y)

Micromax, at last you are in right path.
ksraghavendra - You're right, I should have caught this. My apologies. We're working with Micromax to get the correct shot and once I have it, I'll switch in the correct shot.
tuhin12 - thanks for the catch. We have removed the incorrect shot and will put in the correct shot of the W092 once we have it.
Android Keys on a WP device. Please rectify the mistake.
So the Canvas W092 device is a Windows mobile with Android physical keys? A proper device mockup is so difficult to make these days?
And this image is put up on official Windows blog ;) Great going!
