Micromax is bringing its “In” series smartphones to India with the MediaTek Helio G35 and Helio G85 SoCs. The company confirmed the processor details through a teaser posted on Twitter on Tuesday. Micromax In Series phones are slated to launch in the country on November 3rd. With its new smartphones, the Indian company wants to take over Chinese companies such as Realme and Xiaomi. The Micromax phones are also rumored to have up to three rear cameras and contain a 5,000 mAh battery.
Micromax India tweeted a teaser video highlighting the MediaTek Helio G35 and Helio G85 presence on the Micromax In-series phones.
The MediaTek Helio G85 SoC, launched in May, is already part of popular smartphones such as Realme Narzo 20 and Redmi Note 9. MediaTek Helio G35 was introduced in June and supplies affordable phones such as Realme C11, Redmi 9 and Poco C3.
ONE report of The Mobile Indian last week suggested the presence of both new MediaTek chipsets on upcoming Micromax phones. The report also claimed that the new series’ budget option would feature a 6.5-inch HD + display and come with up to 3GB of RAM, as well as up to 32GB of onboard storage. You can also expect a dual rear camera setup and a 5,000 mAh battery. In contrast, the superior variant with the Helio G85 SoC is expected to have triple rear view cameras.
Micromax co-founder Rahul Sharma announced in an interview with Gadgets 360 last week that the new series would price between Rs. 7,000 and Rs. 25,000. It is also promised to provide a near-current Android experience that does not contain any bloatware or ads.
The Micromax In-series launch is still a week away, and the company is expected to confirm more features on the upcoming phones in the coming days.
