    The Indian smartphone manufacturer Micromax is back in the business with a new sub-brand “In”. Under the new IN 1 lineup, the company has launched the IN Note 1 and IN 1B.

    Both the handsets are powered by MediaTek chipsets. Amidst Indian patriotism and Made-in-India programme, the Micromax has relied on IN series to make affordable handsets.

    Apart from the affordable price tag, the stock Android OS is the other USP of the new Micromax IN series. Both the handsets offer pure Android experience with no bloatware and guaranteed updates for the next 2 years.

    Regarding the Micromax In Note 1, the front panel sports a 6.67-inch LCD with Full HD+ punch-hole display. Powered by MediaTek Helio G85 gaming chipset and 4GB RAM, it houses 64GB/128GB internal space along with microSD card support.

    On the optics front, there is a 48MP AI Quad Camera with 48MP primary camera, 5MP wide-angle camera, 2MP macro and 2MP depth sensor. For the selfies, there’s a 16MP wide-angle lens.

    Don’t know how the camera reacts in real conditions, but the company boasts that it is well equipped with Night Vision to click during low-light hours.

    As told earlier, Micromax In Note 1 boots Android 10 out-of-the-box. There’s an exclusive Google Assistant button on the left side and fingerprint scanner on the back.

    Fueled by 5000mAh battery and 18W fast charging (and also reverse charging), the Micromax In Note 1 supports USB-C port and reverse charging. It’s a dual 4G VoLTE handset that offers all connectivity options including 3.5mm audio jack, Bluetooth v5.0, etc.

    Moreover, there’s support for 5 GHz Wi-Fi connectivity that can deliver 1Gbps speed. Clad in Green and White colours, the Micromax In Note 1 can be purchased on Micromax and Flipkart website from November 24th onwards.

    Regarding price, the 64GB and 128GB variant are priced at INR 10,999 and INR 12,499 respectively.

    There’s another entry-level smartphone Micromax IN 1B in the IN series. It sports a 6.52-inch LCD with HD+ resolution (720 x 1600 pixels) and Mini waterdrop notch on the top with 400 nits display brightness. You get to see the metallic matte finish on 3 different colours including Green, Blue and Purple.

    Powered by a MediaTek’s Helio G35 chipset and PowerVR GE8320 GPU, this comes in 2 variants – 2/32GB and 4/64GB. On the optics side, it has twin cameras including 13MP main and 2MP depth sensor. Of course, there’s an 8MP selfie camera and a fingerprint sensor too.

    As told earlier, this handset too boots stock Android 10 and guaranteed upgrades for 2 years. It seems the Micromax is trying to get Android One status. Everyone wants pure Android experience rather than a modified user interface filled with ads and bloatware.

    Leaving it aside, the Micromax IN 1B handset is backed by a big 5000mAh battery. However, it is just limited to 10W fast-charging through USB-C port but gets reverse charging facility.

    All other connectivity options remain same including triple tray supporting dedicated slot for microSD card and 3.5mm audio jack.

    Starting November 26, one can grab the handset in two storage options 2/32GB and 4/64GB priced at INR 6999 and INR 7999 respectively on Micromax website and eCommerce portal Flipkart.

    By going through the specs, the Micromax IN 1b could be easily the best gaming handset of 2020. This pricing will give a nightmare to Xiaomi and Realme.

    As per the latest update, the pre-booking on Flipkart is ALL BOOKED. The company has announced Nov 24th as the next date for pre-orders.

    This seems to be a good comeback by Micromax!!!
