A month after announcing its first Google-certified Android TV, Micromax is all set to introduce a new smartphone in India. The upcoming Micromax smartphone will feature a notch for the first time as the brand looks to move its budget range closer to an all-screen dream. The Micromax device will be unveiled on December 18.
The announcement comes from the save-the-date invites by the company which revealed the date of launch as December 18. The poster also revealed a rough outline of the upcoming smartphone featuring curved corners and a notch on top of the display. The notch on the display will resemble the ones on the new iPhones meaning it’ll be wider and occupy more screen that displays with a teardrop notch.
Around the same time, Micromax also tweeted about the upcoming smartphone with a teaser image which also indicated a notch on the top. The tweet featured the hashtag #AboveTheRest which could mean that the device will be unveiled as part of a new catalogue. The teaser image also reads “Does the powerful excite you?”

We’re yet to hear more about the device as its specifications and features are unknown at the moment. Once launched, the new device will be the seventh smartphone released by Micromax this year as the company plans to complete the launch of 13 smartphones between September 2018 and March 2019.
Micromax introduced its last smartphone in October this year with the launch of the Bharat 5 Infinity Edition which featured an 18:9 FullView display, ran on Android Oreo (Go Edition) and came with a 5000mAh battery. Prior to that, the company also launched the Micromax Spark Go with a 5-inch FWVGA display, 2000mAh battery and Android Oreo (Go Edition).
