Micromax announces comeback in Indian smartphone market with "In"

Thereafter, it gradually relinquished the Indian smartphone market to these companies along with Samsung, Apple and Google.

Separately, in an interview with YouTuber Technical Guruji, Rahul Sharma revealed that the devices in the company's "In" series will be "performance-oriented".

One of these phones will come with the MediaTek Helio G35 chipset, which will have a 6.5-inch HD + display. It will be available in two combinations - 2GB RAM with 32GB built-in storage and 3GB RAM and 32GB built-in storage. The device is backed by a 5,000mAh battery. Besides that, this variant could adorn a 13MP selfie camera in the front. The higher 3 GB RAM + 32 GB storage model will be equipped with a 13-megapixel + 5-megapixel + 2-megapixel triple camera system. For selfies, it will offer a 13-megapixel selfie camera. Details about the first Micromax smartphone under the "In" branding are now unknown.

According to the report, Micromax's first in series phones will be priced between ₹7,000 and ₹15,000.

The report is pretty much in line with the older leaks that had too claimed the phones would be available within a price range of ₹7,000 and ₹15,000.

After teasing its plans to make a comeback to the smartphone business twice over the past few months, Micromax has finally taken to Twitter today to announce a new "In" smartphone series for India.

In the video, Sharma can be heard saying that while he was not defeated he was content with what he had achieved.

However, he went on to add, "But what happened at the border wasn't right".

However, after the government's call for an "Atmanirbhar Bharat" (self-reliant India), the company has now chose to make a comeback with its "In" range of smartphones. That Micromax was planning a return to making smartphones - after a near two-year long hiatus - has been known since June but this is the first time, we're hearing something more concrete directly from the co-founder who only recently also launched his own spin-off next-gen mobility company Revolt Motors.
