Micromax ties up with Flipkart in a bid to revive dwindling sales


Micromax, once a behemoth in the lucrative Indian smartphone market, is now being seen wanting to space.

The recent launch in the Dual 5 doesn’t seem to have done too much, and the brand is now looking to go back to it’s roots — with a bit of a twist — to get back a share of the pie.

For that, Micromax have partnered with one of India’s biggest online retailers — Flipkart. It’s to be noted that the partership goes beyond just a retail one, and Flipkart will reportedly provide intelligence and analytics to help Micromax build a trust and get a hold on the market.

Micromax is also planning to come up with a couple new budget phones in the budget segment, where the brand saw the most traction in its heyday. The Evok Note and the Evok Power are two devices that the Indian vendor plans to launch in the 6,000-12,000 INR range in the coming months.

With a host of Chinese makers offering a slew of budget options, do you think Micromax will be able to find itself the niche it used to rule over at one time?

    Micromax is hopelessly lost. When going was good, they looted Indian public by rebranding cheapest Shenzhen phones and unloading to hapless Indian public. Never invested in R&D nor any innovation. Now the water is above their head. Indians don’t trust this brand.

    no chance for mmx , 1st one looks copy of redmi note 3 without fingerprint and 2nd one looks full copy of redmi note 4 with finger print . so just tell me a reason why should we buy a copy if we can get original at same price with much better build

      Micromax has been selling the same whitebox trash it always has. The difference is Chinese brands are selling much better quality for the same price
