The Windows Phone device is expected to be the flagship smartphone in the Micromax lineup and will be priced in the price range of Rs 23,000-25,000. This will be the first time Micromax breaching the Rs 20,000 price barrier. The smartphone is expected to come with 5 inch display with a 1080p resolution. A 2600 mAh battery unit will be present in it.

Under the hood will be a Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM. At the back, you’ll get a 13MP camera with LED flash and at the front you’ll get a 5MP snapper. The internal storage of the smartphone will stand at 16GB which will can be expanded by additional 64GB with the help of a microSD card slot.

No matter how good the specs are, people will still be apprehensive about going in for a Micromax device in the Rs 20,000-25,000 range and that is what worries us.
