American smartphone brand InFocus, which is licensed to Foxconn, on Wednesday re-entered the Indian market after failing to make an impact in the last two years. The company plans to launch around eight feature phones in the price range of Rs 699 to Rs 1099 starting July.
Piyush Puri, vice president, sales and marketing, InFocus said to The Mobile Indian, “ We will be launching eight features phones in India, and cheapest one will be for Rs 699, and it will be available in 15,000 retailers pan India.”
He further added, “We will be coming out with feature phones in three different screen sizes 1.8 inches, 2.4 inches and 2.8 inches. The entry level features phones will not support 4G but the top end ones will support it.”
