The Indian handset brand aims to be the country’s second largest smartphone vendor by the end of this year, just behind Samsung. Apart from the Superfone Pixel A90, it has also launched the Superfone Canvas A100 that sports a 5-inch display and is priced at just Rs 9,990. To take on Samsung’s entry-level Android smartphones like the Galaxy Pocket and Galaxy Y, Micromax is also launching the Ninja 3.5 and Ninja 4.0 priced at Rs 4,999 and Rs 5,999 respectively. Both offer a bigger display and better features than the Samsung smartphones. Micromax is hoping to repeat what it did with dual-SIM phones by disrupting the smartphone market with better price positioning and offering more choices in a narrow price band.
