Tag Archives: Micromax X450 VanGogh

Micromax VanGogh x450 looks very similar to LG Decoy!!!

A few days back I saw the TV campaigns for the new Micromax VanGogh  X450. The X450 sports a inbuilt Bluetooth headset, present on the backside of the device. This reminded me of something that I had seen earlier, but was not able to really recollect exactly. So after some google searches I got what looks like the original inspiration of the Micromax VanGogh, the LG Decoy!! I am not sure if the designers at LG wanted to give some premonition, but the name is very unsettling. The Decoy was released in 2008 and was a slider as against the 2011 mono block  design of the VanGogh. The design of the VanGogh is quite streamlined and seems more classy and its even dual-sim like all other Micromax offerings.

Here are some images for comparison.
