The Micromax “In” series was finally launched in India after much anticipation and a series of teasers. The new range includes Micromax In Note 1 and Micromax In 1b, both of which come with MediaTek chipsets and run on Android 10 with a “full warehouse experience” with no bloatware or ads. Micromax has also promised to offer software updates for the new smartphones for two years. The Gurugram-based company was once a leader in the Indian wireless market. However, it was evident in the growing dominance of Chinese brands such as Oppo, Vivo and Xiaomi in the country. Micromax co-founder Rahul Sharma presented the company’s Bhiwadi plant during the virtual launch and explained the production process for the new smartphones, which are touted as part of the “Make in India” initiative.
