Although the global smartphone sales might soon start to drop, it looks like some companies have serious plans for the years to come. One such company is Micromax, currently holding the second place in India, where Samsung leads the smartphone market. 

Micromax has three big milestones to check in the coming years:

  • 2017 - to enter the Chinese market
  • 2018 - to go public
  • 2020 - to become the fifth largest smartphone maker in the world

Although the second place in India seems like a good performance, Micromax is threatened by multiple Chinese makers of affordable handsets and taking the fight back to their home market sounds like a good choice.

Chinese company Vivo holds the fifth place globally and currently retails about 4 million units a month, while Micromax still struggles to reach the 2 million mark. However, if everything works as planned, Micromax might get the fifth position on the global market without exceeding the 4 million units a month mark. After all, the market is expected to drop, and a lot could happen by 2020.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
