Following Xiaomi and Samsung, Micromax is developing its own OS which will come with various sevices and apps that will work on phones, tablets, PCs and wearables.

Reports to be believed, the company’s software team in Bengaluru is developing a forked android OS version which will take advantage of Google’s open source platform.

“The first smartphones with the new OS will be available by the end of this financial year and they will be affordably priced,” Micromax’s co-founder Vikas Jain said.

Micromax comes second after Samsung in Indian handset market and it closed the ‘fiscal 2015 with Rs 11,000 crores of revenue’ and sells about 3 million phones a month.
