It used to be so easy to keep up with the Windows Phone handset scene, as there was basically just Nokia and then a few offerings from a handful of other companies. But this year, that's changing. And among the many new Windows Phone handsets that will arrive this year are two new devices from Micromax that target the India market.
There are two devices coming.
The first, the Canvas Win W092, features a 4-inch IPS screen running at 480 x 800, a 5 megapixel rear camera (with LED flash), a 0.3 megapixel front-facing camera, and 8 GB of built in storage with up to 32 GB of expandable memory via microSD. It's powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 quad-core processor and 1GB of memory and has dual-SIM capabilities.
The Canvas Win W121 is a higher-end device with a 5-inch IPS display (I think its 720p, or 720 x 1280), an 8 megapixel rear camera (with LED flash), a 2 megapixel front-facing camera, and 8 GB of built in storage. Like the W092, it's upgradeable to another 32 GB of storage via microSD. It is also powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor with 1GB of memory and has proximity, gravity, and light sensors, an accelerometer, dual-SIM capabilities, and comes with a leather finish back panel.
Based on the single photo provided by Microsoft, the W121 is a great looking device. I really like the leather stitching, for example.
The Micromax Canvas Win W092and Canvas Win W121will be available starting in July and priced at Rs. Rs. 6,500/- and 9,500/- respectively. That's about $110 and $160, by the way, so these are incredibly affordable devices.
