Earlier this year, Microsoft added a number of new hardware partners for Windows Phone devices, including Micromax, an Indian manufacturer quite popular for manufacturing budget-friendly Android devices.
Recently, Micromax unveiled two budget-friendly Windows Phone 8.1 powered devices dubbed as Canvas Win W121 and W092.
The handset doesn’t come with extraordinary specifications, but considering the price tag, it’s still very decent. The Canvas Win W121 comes with a 5-inch HD IPS display, as well as a quad-core Snapdragon 200 SoC clocked at 1.2GHz with 1GB of RAM and 8GB internal storage with a microSD card slot of up to 32GB.
Other features include an 8MP camera with LED flash for photos and videos, 2MP front-facing camera, dual-SIM support and runs Windows Phone 8.1 as its operating system. The handset comes with a Rs 9,500 price tag ($158).
The second in the list, Canvas Win W092, comes with a 4-inch display, and is powered by the same Snapdragon 200 quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage with a MicroSD card slot, 5MP camera, 0.3MP front-facing camera, a 1,500 mAh battery and runs Windows Phone 8.1. It comes with a lower Rs 6,500 price tag.
Both devices will hit the retail shelves in the country in July 2014.
