Micromax announced on their Twitter account that they will be announcing a new smartphone in India that will also include a notch, which is expected to be a first from the company. They have sent out invites to all the media publications with a poster that shows the phone with the cut out of a notch on the display.
Micromax has always been about producing budget phones, but things are about to change now as the company is looking to move towards big screen smartphones just like the OnePlus and iPhones. Micromax used to be a dominating force in the smartphone market at one point of time, but was left behind when the Chinese phone maker took over the market in the past few years.
There was another teaser on the company’s social media accounts which also shows the phone with a notch at the top. The hashtag on the image reads #AboveTheRest with the tagline “Does the powerful excite you?”
We still do not know about the specifications of the phone yet, but sources claim that the Micromax would be launching 13 smartphones next year between September 2018 and March 2019. This new notch-phone will be one of the seven smartphones launched in India this year and the company will expect to continue this run in 2019 as well with much better and bigger phones.
Micromax was among the list of top 5 smartphone vendors for the third quarter of 2018. We are not sure if the company will be launching this phone under the premium category, as it will be something to look forward to if that turns out to be true.
