Micromax brought its “In” series of smartphones with MediaTek Helio G35 and Helio G85 SoC to India. The company confirmed the processor details through a trailer posted on Twitter on Tuesday. The Indian company plans to launch the Micromax series of mobile phones in the country on November 3. By launching new smartphones, the Indian company plans to compete with Chinese companies such as Realme and Xiaomi. It is rumored that Micromax phones have up to three rear cameras and are equipped with 5,000mAh batteries.
Micromax India released a teaser video highlighting the existence of MediaTek Helio G35 and Helio G85 in Micromax In series phones.
The MediaTek Helio G85 SoC, which focuses on gaming, was launched in May and has become a part of popular smartphones such as Realme Narzo 20 and Redmi Note 9. On the other hand, MediaTek Helio G35 was launched in June and powers cheap phones such as Realme C11, Redmi 9 and Poco C3.
Last week, a report from “Mobile Indian” indicated that there are two new MediaTek chipsets on the upcoming Micromax phones. The report also claims that the budget option of the new series will be equipped with a 6.5-inch HD+ display, with up to 3GB of RAM and up to 32GB of onboard storage. You can also expect a dual rear camera setup and a 5,000mAh battery. In contrast, the advanced version with Helio G85 SoC is expected to be used for triple rear cameras.
Micromax co-founder Rahul Sharma revealed in an interview with TechnologyShout last week that the price of the new series is between Rs. 7,000 and Rs. 25,000 price segments. It also promises to provide an Android experience close to stock and will not contain any outdated software or ads.
The release of the Micromax In series is still within a week, and the company is expected to confirm more features of the upcoming phones in the next few days.
