"After much research and careful market study, we realised that today's young Indians have two specific demands from their ideal smartphone: powerful phone and a camera that astounds, particularly one that gives the best-quality selfies. Keeping these preferences in mind, we have developed a one-of-a-kind smartphone that is a manifestation of all their desires! The 13-megapixel front camera with flash and the rear camera equipped with dual color flash and F1.8 aperture ensures the clearest, brightest and most beautiful pictures that deserve to be shared with friends and family," said Sachin Thapar, Country Head, InFocus Mobiles during the launch.
