Micromax to launch 4G LTE smartphones in December; Also planning on Windows smartphones

Earlier this week we heard that XOLO would launch its first LTE enabled smartphone in November. New reports suggest that Micromax too has plans to enter the competitive market.


According to sources, Micromax would launch its new range of LTE enabled smartphones starting from this December. The move would ensure a lead period for the company so that users won’t have to change their smartphones when LTE networks are rolled across the country next year.

In the meanwhile, Micromax is apparently considering unveiling smartphones running on the Windows Phone platform as well, thus making it the first Indian manufacturer to enter the domain which is currently controlled by Nokia. The company also has plans to expand its operations to Russia and Romania.

Speaking about their plans, Micromax co-founder Rahul Sharma said, “We want to establish ourselves on LTE and offer products that are LTE ready by December, so that consumers would not need to change their handsets whenever voice over LTE becomes available, be it six months or eight months later.”
