Micromax launched on Friday its new line of feature phones dubbed “Joy” in a new packaging style. With smartphones doing their rounds in the industry, Micromax has come out with innovative and budget friendly feature phones to satisfy peoples telephony needs. The Micromax Joy X-1800 and Joy X1850 are the two new chic looking feature phones revealed by the company under its new ‘Joy’ series.

The Micromax Joy X-1800 priced at Rs 699 already hit the shelves last Thursday while the Joy X1850 priced Rs 749 is to reach the market sometime next week. And something more interesting done by the company with these features phones is the way they come packed. Leaving behind the traditional box packaging, Micromax has taken up a unique pouch packaging style for these phones which resemble the candy packs. The company has done this to add some flavor to these phones and also to reduce cost and to add value for money.
