Micromax is developing a 5G phone as well as new mobile accessories at its Bengaluru R&D centre.
Micromax 5G phone is set to debut in India “very soon”, Co-Founder Rahul Sharma revealed in a video session with users. The executive also hinted at imminent launch of Micromax’s true wireless stereo (TWS) earbuds. Micromax made its comeback in the smartphone market last year with the launch of the Micromax In Note 1 and Micromax In 1b models. Sharma also said that the Micromax In Note 1 would receive an update to Android 11. He also highlighted an upcoming software update for the Micromax In 1b that is claimed to enhance user experience.
While talking about the ongoing plans at Micromax in the over 11-minute video session, Sharma said that engineers at its Bengaluru R&D centre were rigorously working towards a 5G phone. He, however, didn’t provide a specific timeline for its launch except saying that it would debut very soon.
In a video session in December last year, Sharma suggested the launch of a 6GB RAM smartphone with a high display refresh rate and liquid cooling. That model is, however, yet to be officially announced by the company. It is likely that those details could be associated with the Micromax 5G phone in the works.
Alongside the 5G phone, Micromax engineers at its Bengaluru R&D centre were developing mobile accessories, said Sharma. He also suggested that the first accessory could be a hearable — likely to be the company’s first TWS earbuds.
“The product that is in the works will have quite a unique design and a new technology,” said Sharma.
