Commenting on the launch of the series, Ajjay Agarwal, Chairman & Managing Director, MAXX Group said, A mobile device has become more than just a communication device, it has become a lifeline to most of us! Whether it is a conference call for a business pitch or catch-up call with old friends, a mobile phone has become indispensable. But our conversations are never without the hustle-bustle of everyday life. Crowded restaurants, busy offices, chaotic commutes make it difficult to have a quiet conversation. In India, where there is still a very high preference and dependence on voice calls, we believe feature-rich yet affordably priced Khamoshhh… series is the perfect device for an Indian audience.
