The year 2016 was quite challenging for Micromax and the company is said to recapture the market share this year from the Chinese OEM’s. The domestic smartphone maker has recently launched a flagship device called as the Micromax Dual 5 and a budget 4G VoLTE mobile called Micromax Bharat 2 in India.
In the latest development, Micromax is expected to launch two smartphones in its Evok series- the Evok Note and Evok Power. The live product packaging image of the Micromax Evok Note was previously leaked online. The new mid-range smartphone, the Evok NOTE will compete with Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 in India. The handset is expected to flaunt a metal unibody design, 4G VoLTE support, and fingerprint scanner at the front panel.
Micromax is said to have partnered with Flipkart which is the leading e-commerce store in India for the sale of the Evok Note and Evok Power. With these two devices, Micromax will target the online segment for the first time. The company has a very strong offline presence in the country and it is expected to grab the online territory with the new Evok series.
