According to a report Micromax will soon launch four affordable 4G smartphones in India ahead of the festive season, to cash in on the booming demand for LTE devices.

The phones will belong to a new "Video" series and will come pre-installed with Google's Duo voice calling app. They will all be priced below Rs. 6,700.
