Micromax gave us a clear view that the company is working on Windows Phone OS platform and if all goes well, the handset will get released soon. Back in December, there were lots of rumors about Micromax’s first Windows Phone. It was expected that the homegrown company would release WP powered smartphones at MWC event. But we didn’t hear a single word since then. However, in April, 2014, Micromax gave an assurance that their first ever WP powered project is on the way of its release. Now, if the rumors are to be believed then we could see the news changing into reality in July,2014.
A top leakster MMXNewscaster (twitter handle is not active anymore), leaked a screenshot of On-Screen buttons.
