Commenting on the launch, Mr. Vineet Taneja, CEO, Micromax said,
“The Canvas Spark proved to be a huge success for Micromax, selling over half a million units in less than two months of its launch. With the Canvas Spark 2, we are yet again reaffirming our commitment to massify the smartphone and Internet usage in the country. Currently, smartphone penetration stands at 12% in the country and 3G adoption is also barely 10%, which presents a huge opportunity to upgrade. We believe that the e-commerce channel is also expanding and the 3-4K category will be the next frontier. Micromax with its strong brand presence and great product offering focused on democratizing technology, has historically cemented itself as the most preferred brand for the mass smartphone segment. With this launch, we are looking at adding a further impetus to this and drive the overall entry into smartphone category. The Canvas Spark 2 is the most affordable 5-inch, 3G, Android Lollipop device available in the Indian market, making it a great value proposition for the consumers. Our association with Snapdeal has been long-standing, and we expect sales of Canvas Spark 2 to touch newer heights in the coming weeks, which will further strengthen our leadership position in India.”
