"With the launch of these three smartphones, MTS have now brought four new Android Smartphones in less than two months. MTS now offers a inclusive range of Android smartphones for sensitive, on the move, tech savvy youth," SSTL Chief Marketing and Sales Officer Leonid Musatov said in a statement.

SSTL will also offer free access to MTS TV for 1 month from date of activation to its smartphone users.

SSTL is a venture, involving equity participation by Russia's Sistem, the Government of Russian Federation and the Shyam Group of India. It has over 16 million subscribers in the country.
