Micromax plans on launching a 5.5 inch FHD phablet next month
Indian handset manufacturer Micromax is planning on releasing a phablet next month. Called the Micromax A120 Canvas HD Pro, this is a true high-end model with a 5.5 inch FHD display, a quad-core MediaTek processor, 2GB of RAM and a 13MP rear-facing snapper. Micromax plans on offering the phone for 20,000 INR ($385 USD).

Last August, we told you about the 5 inch Micromax Superfone Canvas A100 which was priced at 9999 INR ($180 USD). But unlike the new model, which offers a larger screen, the Superfone Canvas A100's screen had a resolution of just 480 x 854 and the phone carried just 512MB of RAM with a 5MP rear camera.

We really don't expect to see this model find its way to the U.S. where the Samsung Galaxy Note II and the LG Optimus G Pro both live. But if a phablet with an FHD screen were to find its way into the U.S. priced at under $400, it just might be able to make some waves.

Why FHD?

Because they already have HD phone. Anyway FHD is on its way to become mainstream.

FHD is not needed on a screen smaller than 7 inches but just for marketing every company is implementing it...

1280x720 is a hell of resolution for mobile devices,this makes a ppi of almost 300-350 which is quite good. they can work on brightness and viewing angles if they really wanna improve.

I think it's an OEM's job to keep rumors in denial mode whenever possible, even though it can be true. I won't be surprised if Micromax comes out with a FHD phone... But i'm so not sure of the processor. Quad core Mediatek processors are a fine way to power an HD phone but a FHD phone is going to burn it. I think Snapdragon S4 Pro Quad would have done better justice.

lol.. dude I own A110 and A116. They aren't bad. Bettery lasts good and the rear snappers are awesome. Save for the Dark. No way the build quality is bad. For the money they rock. People just are stuck to opinion that only major brands can offer quality and smaller just make crap.

Micromax phones are not bad, they're just lesser-known. But anyway, good luck to them!

I have never heard of micromax, but that is a cool logo.

That logo wasn't designed by micromax themselves but a participant, among other 10000, designed it. It was unveiled two years back in a ind vs sl/pak(cant remember) match.
