Micromax is all set to take on its rivals including Xiaomi and Motorola by storm in the coming weeks.
Especially in the low priced smartphone market segment, the native handset maker is prepping its pawns to sustain its superior position in the market.
Today, the company has come out with teaser video which hints that Micromax is planning to launch a new budget smartphone under its Unite series this Independence day (which is next week). The company has also used the hashtag in the YouTube video as #MicromaxUniteAnthem, which obviously justifies to be the official name of the soon-to-be-released handset. (UPDATE: Micromax contacted to inform us that Unite Anthem will not be the official name of the handset, rather it's just a hashtag given to the newly released song by the company for Independence day.)
When GizBot got this news, we couldn't resist to get in touch with our sources and finally we have come up with an exclusive piece of news at this hour just for our readers.
