Micromax and Opera have announced that they have renewed their partnership to pre-install Opera Mini browser on Micromax Android devices for an unspecified time. The companies had originally entered into an agreement last year and since then, Opera Mini has been pre-installed on over 50 Android phones and tablets from Micromax.
“Smartphones have paved the way for a more connected world, with internet being one of the game-changers in the handset industry. At Micromax, we have always strived to democratize technology for the masses through our innovative product portfolio, service offerings and smart partnerships. Through this collaboration with Opera Software, we are empowering our users with a seamless and faster web browsing experience, giving them an unmatched user interface on their smartphones,” Micromax stated about the Opera-pact.
To remind you, Opera Mini browser from Opera includes features like Smart Page notifications, Speed Dial website shortcuts, download manager, password manager, visual tabs, saved webpages for offline viewing as well as cloud-compression of webpages. According to opera, Mini compresses webpages to as little as 10% of their original size before sending them to the smartphones, thus helping the consumers in saving data costs.
