The company is also heavily invested in Internet of Things research and engineering, and has big plans for expanding its product line-up in the coming year. Apart from smartphones and computers, the company also has plans to get into the IoT products space, routers and more.

But perhaps Smartron s biggest claim to fame is its most famous shareholder, Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar. A strategic investor in the company, Sachin is also the company s brand ambassador. We had a chance to talk to Sachin at a recent interaction that also included Mahesh Lingareddy, chairman and managing director of Smartron. Check out the interview below.

Smartron already has two products in the market, but is rumored to be launching a new device soon, after Tendulkar was spotted shooting for Smartron recently. The current line-up includes the Smartron tphone, which is a high-end device powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC, and features a super AMOLED full-HD screen and 4GB of RAM, along with the Smartron tbook, a Windows 10-powered hybrid laptop that hopes to take on the Microsoft Surface, albeit at a much more affordable price.
Smartron was most recently in the news for signing a 3G and 4G patent license agreement with Qualcomm, allowing the company to develop, manufacture and sell WCDMA, CDMA2000 and 4G/LTE devices.
