The phone, to be released shortly, will charge in 3 hours to support 1.5 hours of talktime.
Rahul Sharma, co-founder and executive director, Micromax, told The Mobile Phone, "We have been at the forefront of innovation. We were the first to launch long battery life phones, dual SIM phones and many more. Our next innovation is to get rid of the mobile phone charger by including a solar panel in our next phone. This solar charger will top up the charge in 3 hours to support 1.5 hours of talktime."
Micromax will not be the first manufacturer with such a product. Vodafone has Vodafone VF 247, a very basic phone with voice and text features along with FM radio, colour display and solar panel at the back. This phone is priced at Rs 1,500. However, going by the history of Micromax, its phone will be rich in other features as well.
Micromax will become the first Indian brand to launch a device on the new Helio premium platform using the Helio X10.
As per the report, Micromax is developing a new OS based on the Android platform and products based on the new OS may be launched by the end of this financial year.
While Selfie 2 offers a 5 MP camera both in the front and rear panel, the Selfie 3 has 8 MP camera in both ends.
Priced at Rs 5,999, the new Micromax Canvas Xpress 2 is the cheapest phone to have an octa core processor.
Till date, Micromax has launched three Doodle series smartphones - Canvas Doodle A111, Doodle 2 A240 and Doodle 3 A102.
There is no information about its price yet but looking at its configuration, it is all likely to be a low-cost smartphone.
Micromax has apparently taken a dig at the recently launched Xiaomi Redmi 2 in a teaser.
The only task Micromax Joy X1800 and Micromax Joy are expected to perform smoothly are calling and SMSing.
In all likelihood, Micromax Bolt A066 is going to be a cheaper version of Bolt A065.
The Micromax Canvas Hue has decent features including a huge 3000 mAh battery and quad core processor.
