The country’s second largest smartphone maker Micromax on Monday launched two Windows-based phones – Canvas Win W121 and Canvas Win W092 -- priced at Rs 9,500 and Rs 6,500 respectively.

The new handsets based on the Microsoft Windows Phone 8.1 will be available across retail stores and e-commerce portals starting early next month, the company said.

While the company has partnered with Microsoft for the operating system, it has partnered with Qualcomm for the processor.

“I am pleased that Micromax is the only Indian mobile phone brand to be present across the two most popular operating platforms in the world. We will continue to introduce products and services that simplify and enhance the data experience of consumers across markets,” Sanjay Kapoor, Chairman, Micromax, said.

The new Windows Phone 8.1 focuses on personalising and customising the phone with features that can be controlled by the user offering a multitude of features for work and fun.

One can enjoy a personalised user interface with LiveTiles and find faster ways to connect via the People Hub, which bring together friend updates and social networks into one place.

Similarly, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor in the Canvas Win smartphones are designed to support powerful processing, efficient multi-tasking, richer graphics and media capability while optimising battery life, the company said.

Sporting a five-inch HD IPS display, the dual-SIM Canvas Win 121 is power with a 2000 mAh battery and has the 32GB expandable memory, 8MP rear camera with flash and 2MP front camera.

The Canvas Win W092 sports a four-inch IPS display and is power with a 1500 mAh battery, 5MP rear camera with flash and 0.3MP front camera.

With a 1GB RAM and 8GB ROM, users can store all their music, videos, images and documents.

Both smartphones support Bluetooth v4.0 and Wi-Fi, and have Microsoft’s cloud storage tool OneDrive with other capabilities such as Bing, Skype, Xbox Games, and Office 365.
