India’s rising phone brand, Micromax is on its way to launch a phone with a built-in solar charger. The Solar panel build in the phone will provide the talk-time of 1.5 hours after being charged up for 3 hours.
Rahul Sharma, co-founder and executive director, Micromax, told, “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.”
Further, Rahul refusing to leak any other information confirmed that phone will be featuring many things but it will not be a Smartphone. The launch of new phone from Micromax is expected to be made within a week.
This is first Solar-powered phone from Micromax but not first in the field. For example we can have Vodafone VF 247, priced at Rs. 1,500, a basic phone.
