The smartphone is enabling the next phase of smartphone adoption in the country by hand-holding consumers to upgrade from feature phones to smartphones. The company is also working on another compelling handset in the Bharat series- Bharat 1, which will be 4G enabled feature phone. The recent update from Google on a lighter OS to enable low cost phones, is a testimony that the price segment between 2.5K- 3.5K is a massive category in the Indian handset market.  With its Bharat series, Micromax is one of the first handset players to fill the need gap leaving behind some of the international smartphone players in this price segment.
