We are quite late in incoming about this news, we admit that. Micromax is soon going to introduce their own custom Android OS and most probably they will be adding it to their future devices. As of now Micromax is using a custom based ROM on their devices and not the stock Android.
There are already many Chinese mobile firms that are selling their devices in India with their own custom Android OS. Like we have Xiaomi with MIUI, Asus with ZenUI, Xolo with Hive, Huawei with EMUI. So, this is not something new in the field which Micromax would be adapting. See, most of the Micromax devices come with different UI and it could be like they want to standardize their phones with the same custom Android OS.
Micromax says that they know their user’s needs on the software part, which features are used the most and what else is required. YU devices also come with cyanogen OS which is quite famous for its features and advancements.
There are also few companies available that adds the stock Android OS to their devices like we have Motorola, and all the Android One devices from different companies as well.
BTW, users can get any custom based Android ROM by just flashing it to the device. Once Micromax is ready with its OS we will surely post guides to flash it on your device (depending upon availability).
It is expected that Micromax may roll out this custom OS to their devices from the 2015’s end. All of the future smartphones might come with this forked Android.
