A Comeback!!

 MICROMAX, LAVA, AND KARBONN ARE RETURNING TO INDIA?

        Following the India-China border conflict, anti-China sentiment grew among Indians, as sales of firms such as Samsung and Apple skyrocketed. Indian enterprises such as MICROMAX, LAVA, and KARBON are aiming to re-enter the Indian market using this as an opportunity. Because of the strong domination of Chinese companies for the previous 5 years, most of us would have forgotten their brand names.

HOW DID THESE BUSINESSES FAIL?


       Before five years, these firms were extremely well-known among customers, with 6 out of 10 individuals owning a MICROMAX, LAVA, or KARBONN phone. Following the advent of a few Chinese businesses like OPPO, VIVO, REDMI, and HONOR, it became extremely tough for Indian enterprises to compete. These Chinese corporations used some great marketing methods, advertising on television, social media, billboards, and mobile phone stores, among other places; their advertisements were virtually everywhere.


They spent hundreds of crores of rupees on sponsorships and ads since they had some major investors backing them up. They also used creative pricing methods to ensure that the majority of customers thought they were getting a fair bargain. Even though we Indians have always believed that "Chinese products are generally knockoffs that won't survive long," people's attitudes have gradually changed, and most people are unaware that Vivo, Oppo, and Redmi are Chinese firms.


       LAVA and KARBONN didn't invest much in marketing, didn't have any permanent brand ambassadors, and didn't pay attention to price tactics, indicating that they were certain that they wouldn't lose market share. Micromax, on the other hand, followed some sound business practices and outlasted the other Indian manufacturers by a few years.


MICROMAX'S DEATH

       MICROMAX, on the other hand, did not even make their own phones; instead, they purchased already assembled phones from a Chinese business and rebranded them as Micromax.


Even large corporations with their own R&D departments are working hard to keep up with the latest developments in the mobile phone business. Micromax couldn't supply decent specifications for its smartphones since they didn't focus on R&D.


THESE ARE THE SECOND INNINGS

   MICROMAX ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE OF THREE NEW SMARTPHONES

        

               Micromax has publicly said that it is "working hard" and "soon will come out with something huge," according to a report from gadget 360. Micromax is expected to release three new smartphones. All of these will be priced under $10,000.

“Greetings, Hitesh. I'm glad to see you're behind #VocalForLocal. Internally, we're putting in a lot of effort, and we'll have something significant shortly. Keep an eye out! The tweet stated, "#Micromax #MadeByIndian #MadeForIndian."


KARBONN ANNOUNCES TWO NEW PHONE MODELS

         “The firm will debut two new smartphones under ten thousand rupees," said Sashin Devsarre, executive director of KARBONN mobiles, adding that "the firm will introduce a wristwatch from Karbonn." These are slated to enter the market at the end of August.


THREE NEW SMARTPHONES ARE AVAILABLE FROM LAVA.

            LAVA has already released a new model, the Z66, and is planning to release two additional models by the end of August. The Z66 has 3GB of RAM and runs Android 10 as its operating system. A Unisoc CPU with a 1.2GHz clock speed powers the phone.

“As India prepares to become the world's leading manufacturer and designer of mobile phones, we are ready to make India proud by winning worldwide on the basis of the Indian ecosystem. However, it's a marathon, not a sprint,” Lava International's CMD, Hari Om Rai, told ETTelecom.


FINAL WORDS

          For all non-Chinese and Indian enterprises, this is the finest chance. If they can deliver a solid smartphone in their respective price ranges and employ effective marketing methods, we could see several Indian smartphones survive in the market.
