According to the collaboration, Opera reportedly said, Micromax, Videocon, Spice, MoMagic Technologies, Wynncom, Lemon Mobiles and iBall will preinstall Opera Mini browser as an exclusive, third-party mobile browser across their upcoming Android devices.

Opera Software Vice President for South Asia Sunil Kamath said "India is home to the largest number of Opera Mini users in the world. Partnering with local OEMs in India and neighboring countries is part of our growth strategy to take Opera Mini's user numbers in the region from strength to strength,". He also said since the beginning of this year, more than 100 Android devices with Opera Mini preinstalled on them have been launched in India, Bangladesh and Nepal.

However, soon the 7 domestic mobile phone manufacturers are said to come up with devices where the browser from Opera will come pre-installed. Moreover, devices like Micromax Canvas 4, Canvas Doodle 2, Spice Coolpad, Lava Iris 506Q, Celkon Campus A20, and Karbonn A9 Star are said to come with the same browser.
