Flipkart launches MarQ M3 Smart in India
The MarQ M3 Smart budget Android phone has been launched in India. For those unaware, MarQ is an in-house brand of e-commerce giant Flipkart.
From the looks of it, this phone appears to be a bulk-imported Chinese device with MarQ labels on it, something similar to what Indian companies like Micromax and Lava used to do in the past.
Previously, Flipkart had launched a few smartphones under its Billion and DigiFlip brands, all of which were commercial failures.
