Indian smartphone makers, in recent times, have arrived in huge numbers. We are not necessarily stuck in those days when a choice for a handset was usually associated with the company that's from abroad. Nowadays, however, setups like Micromax and Karbonn are making sure that buyers don't have to knock on the doors of these brands everytime they look for a new device.
The smartphone market, itself, is one of the most exciting and open in the world, and it's only natural more and more vendors will look to flood it with their own smartphone offerings. And now with the market opening up more than it did even a couple of years back, we see vendors releasing more than two devices a month.
Keeping up with the momentum in this open market, it seems like Micromax is all geared to make the most out of it in its attempt to climb the top of the charts before the end of the current financial year.
The Gurgaon, India-based setup has already listed and revealed a number of smartphones running Google's Android operating system under a plethora of price tags that makes sure everybody can afford a smartphone. And two devices aimed at doing just that are the new Micromax Canvas Engage and the Micromax Unite 2 A106.
Both the devices fall in more or less the same category and looks to take the competition away from the likes of Moto E that has been taking all the glory away from others in the same dominion.
