Indian Micromax signs Hugh Jackman as a brand ambassador
Depending on where you live, Micromax could be both a profoundly familiar smartphone manufacturer, or a complete stranger. Based in India, it's one of the leaders in the growing local market, but unlike many of the smaller Asian manufacturers, Micromax has actually taken a decidedly Western approach to the way it conducts business. With that in mind, it shouldn't be a surprise to see that the company has now enrolled movie star Hugh Jackman's services as a brand ambassador.

Jackman's first appearance is in a ten second long clip teasing the upcoming Micromax Canvas Turbo, said to come with Android 4.3 out of the box, and expected to sport a 1080p display along with a quad-core chipset.

Micromax CMO Shubhodip Pal is in an expectedly good mood after the deal:

And Jackman, of course, also did his part:

There's currently no word on when the Micromax Canvas Turbo will come out, though it's expected to see an official release before the end of the year. In any case, it'll be interesting to see whether non-global manufacturers such as Micromax will end up playing a notable part in the smartphone market in the years to come, for their appetite is admirable.
