How important is the design element while performing the R&D on smartphones today? Please share your design roadmap for the coming year? How can design create big market differentiations?

Smartron has made its mark through very unique design approach. Our first generation tbook and tphone designs are great examples whether it is the dual tone colors, lightness, thickness, kickstand etc. With hardware and software continues to get standardized and commoditized, we at smartron believe that design and experience are two ways to differentiate.


As we are moving towards an IoT era – experts say that future smartphones will be a powerhouse of sensors that will instantaneously speak with multiple set of devices and perform critical tasks for users. Please share your thoughts on this?

I couldn’t agree with you more on this. Smartron is founded precisely to ride the IoT era. We have no legacy burden and everything we do is IoT ready whether they are our devices or cloud or care or services. The seamless communication between devices and the breaking down the barriers between cloud and device, hardware and software, home and office is the key for IoT world.
