The first Windows Phone 8.1 handsets from Micromax are the Canvas Win W121 and Canvas Win W092
Micromax, one of India’s largest smartphone makers, today announced its very first Windows Phone 8.1 devices. Called Canvas Win W121 and Canvas Win W092, the two handsets will be affordable, and should be available across India starting July.

The Micromax Canvas Win W121 is the largest among the two smartphones. It sports a 5-inch 720p IPS display, featuring an 8MP rear camera with LED flash, 2MP front-facing camera, quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of expandable internal memory, and a 2,000 mAh battery. The Win W121 has a faux-leather rear, and will cost 9,500 INR ($158).

Priced at 6,500 INR ($108), the Micromax Canvas Win W092 comes with the same Snapdragon 200 processor, plus 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage space, and microSD card support. However, its screen is only a 4-inch WVGA one, while the cameras aren’t on par with what the Win W121 is offering: 5MP on the back, and VGA on the front.

For now, only the Canvas Win W121 can be seen in official renders. Interestingly, the handset is mistakenly shown over at Micromax’s website as having Android-like software keys.

With the Canvas Win W121 and Canvas Win W092, Micromax became India’s first smartphone maker to officially introduce Windows Phone products. Xolo should follow soon.
