Micromax In Note 1 and In 1b smartphones have been officially launched, after days and weeks of speculation. The Micromax In Note 1 is powered by the MediaTek Helio G85 SoC, along with 4GB RAM and choices for 64GB and 128GB of internal storage. It features a 6.67-inch full HD+ display, and a 5,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging and reverse charging. To the rear it has a quad rear camera configuration with 48MP + 5MP + 2MP + 2MP setup, and a 16MP front camera in a centrally placed punch hole slot. Micromax also says that the phone runs on "stock" Android, with no bloatware and guarantee of two years of regular software updates.

The Micromax In 1b, meanwhile, features the MediaTek Helio G35 SoC, and comes in two variants – one with 2GB RAM and 32GB storage, and the other with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. It has a 6.5-inch HD+ display, a 13MP dual rear camera, an 8MP front camera, and a 5,000mAh battery with 10W standard charging.

As always, head over to News18.com/Tech for the full coverage, and with that, it's a wrap from our disappointingly short live blog today. See you 'round for another one, some time soon.

And that's that, then, from Micromax's grand return to the Indian smartphone market. Props to Sharma and his team for keeping the fuss low during the stream. If that's his new approach to winning customers over, it might just work for Micromax.

Nov 03, 2020 12:26 (IST)

The Micromax In Note 1 seems particularly well priced for what it offers. Now what remains to be really seen is if Micromax has actually managed to optimise its phones the way it says it has.

Nov 03, 2020 12:25 (IST)

A quick recap of the two phones launched by Micromax today:

Micromax In Note 1 4GB + 64GB: Rs 10,999
Micromax In Note 1 4GB + 128GB: Rs 12,499
Micromax In 1b 2GB + 32GB: Rs 6,999
Micromax In 1b 4GB + 64GB: Rs 7,999

Nov 03, 2020 12:24 (IST)

And that's it. The launch is over. It took, what, 15 minutes? Just based on how little time Micromax wasted today, I'm mighty impressed.

Nov 03, 2020 12:23 (IST)

Here's a roundup of the Micromax In 1b. And the prices are... Rs 7,999 for the 4GB+64GB variant, and Rs 6,999 for the 2GB+32GB variant. Sale starts November 26, on Flipkart and Micromax official store.

Nov 03, 2020 12:20 (IST)

The Micromax In 1b features MediaTek Helio G35 SoC, 2GB or 4GB RAM, 32GB or 64GB storage, 13MP dual rear camera, 8MP front camera, a USB-C port, 6.5-inch HD+ display, and a 5,000mAh battery with reverse charging. It also has three colours.

Nov 03, 2020 12:17 (IST)

The Micromax In Note 1 costs Rs 10,999 for the 4GB + 64GB variant. The 4GB + 128GB variant costs Rs 12,499. Sale will begin from November 24, preorders open today on Flipkart and Micromax official store.

Nov 03, 2020 12:14 (IST)

The Micromax In Note 1 also features a 16MP front camera in a centrally placed punch hole, and also has reverse charging. It has two colours – green and white. Sharma says that you can call the green whatever specific name you want to, and the white colour has a rainbow effect. He's been very... straightforward about things so far.

Nov 03, 2020 12:10 (IST)

And it's unveiled... already. The Micromax In Note 1. It features the Helio G85 SoC, 4GB RAM, 128GB storage, 48MP quad camera, a 5,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging, and a 6.67-inch full HD+ display.

Nov 03, 2020 12:08 (IST)

Sharma says that his Micromax In phones will come with a "pure" Android experience. No bloatware, and regular updates promised. Sure, that's always welcome.

Nov 03, 2020 12:06 (IST)

There's a glimpse of the Micromax assembly plant in Bhiwadi, Rajasthan, where Sharma is trying to convince everyone that the SMT machines at his plant are cutting edge.

Nov 03, 2020 12:05 (IST)

Rahul Sharma, Micromax co-founder, is speaking about responsibility and trust from his colleagues, citing today as the official comeback for the brand.

Nov 03, 2020 12:05 (IST)

And the stream has finally begun! Micromax begins by showing "desh ka pyaar". For the English-native audience, that's "uniform love from across the nation".

Nov 03, 2020 12:03 (IST)

Audience poll: Would it become annoy'in'g if I started putt'in'g all the 'in's in this blog in quotes?

Yeah, I reckon it would.

Nov 03, 2020 12:02 (IST)

It's already beyond 12, but a few minutes 'in', Micromax has flashed a landing logo saying that the event is about to beg'in'.

Nov 03, 2020 12:01 (IST)

Truth be told, how successful do you think Miromax's new India stint would be? The last time 'round, they got played out by Chinese rivals who had deeper pockets and farther vision. This time, they're fuelled by more serious factors than trivial smartphone rivalries.

Nov 03, 2020 11:56 (IST)

Rumours have so far suggested that the Micromax In 1A will start at Rs 6,999. The real question, though, is if it can really be something new or different in the budget smartphone segment.

...can it?

Nov 03, 2020 11:54 (IST)

We've also painstakingly compared the upcoming Micromax In 1A to potential competition – the Realme C12, the Redmi 9A and the Poco C3. Check it out here.

As always, for those of you who'd much rather watch the launch yourself than hear us ramble (we're very entertaining, though), here's the live stream link.

Nov 03, 2020 11:47 (IST)

So we are approximately 15 minutes away from the scheduled launch time, which means that it is time for us to spam you with previous links of our coverage leading up to Micromax's return to the Indian smartphone space.
