Micromax, India’s 2nd largest smartphone maker on Thursday announced the launch of world’s first phone with 21 language support- the Micromax Unite 2.

Commenting on the launch, Mr. Shubhodip Pal, CMO, Micromax said, “India is a diverse country and language at times can act as a barrier for people to seamlessly communicate on their phones.
