Micromax, one of the largest Indian mobile phone brands, plans to launch a phone with a built-in solar charger. The handset, to be released shortly, will charge in 3 hours to support 1.5 hours of talktime, and uses Intivation’s SunBoost3 technology to supply the best possible solar charge.
Rahul Sharma, co-founder and executive director, Micromax, says:
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.
