Looks like Micromax is planning to make a comeback now amid the anti-China and ‘Vocal for Local’ campaigns in the country. Once this India smartphone manufacturer was one of the leading players in the Indian smartphone market. The company’s affordable Canvas series of smartphones were a huge hit among Indians.
Micromax has been out of the market for more than one year. But looks like they are planning to do a comeback with a new ‘Made By Indian’ phone. In response to a tweet by a user, Micromax revealed that a new smartphone is coming. The company hinted that with ‘Made for Indian’ & ‘Made By Indian’ hashtags.

In another tweet, a user asked Micromax if they were planning to launch a mid-range killer phone. The company responded to that tweet by citing that it’s working on an affordable smartphone with premium features & the latest design. However, Micromax did not reveal any specific detail about the phone such as the launch date.

To recall, the last phone the company launched in India was the Micromax iOne Note. It was not officially launched but was listed on the official site back in October 2019.
The key features of that smartphone include a 6-inch HD+ (720 x 1,560 pixels) waterdrop notch display, an unknown octa-core processor with 3GB RAM & 32GB storage, Android 9 Pie, 13MP+2MP dual rear camera, a 5MP selfie camera, and a 3,950mAh battery.
This phone was available with a price tag of Rs. 8,199. So, we are expecting Micromax, that has once been a king of the budget segment, could once again launch smartphones under Rs. 10,000 segment.
We shall have to wait until the brand makes any further announcement on the same.
