With the Evok series, Micromax is chasing to grab the market share from the likes of Lenovo-Motorola, Coolpad, Honor and Xiaomi. All these players have focused on selling their devices through the online channel. While Micromax has no plans to sell its entire smartphone portfolio through Flipkart, the company hopes to taste success with the release of Evok series which will be sold through an exclusive online platform. The Evok series has been developed with inputs from Flipkart. Micromax is looking for a long term partnership with the e-commerce giant.
