Micromax In-series of smartphones are set to launch in India soon, the company officially announced last week. However, the company didn’t reveal anything about the phones at the time apart from giving us a look at the retail box for the In-series phones. As was expected, the rumour mill has started churning out details and leaks regarding the upcoming phones by Micromax in the In-lineup.
According to a tweet by tipster Mukul Sharma, a phone going by the name Micromax In 1a was spotted on Geekbench and the listing revealed that the phone is powered by the MediaTek Helio P35 processor. As per the listing, the 1a is powered by the P35 chipset with an octa-core CPU running at 2.30GHz and is paired with 4GB of RAM, running on Android 10 out-of-the-box.
Having said that, an exclusive report by The Mobile Indian quashed the previous leak citing “sources familiar with the development” and instead revealed that Micromax is preparing to launch two phones, one powered by the Helio G35 processor and another with G85 processor under the hood.
In an interview with the YouTube channel Technical Guruji, Rahul Sharma, co-founder of Micromax announced that the launch of the first few phones can be expected to be held sometime in “early November”. Let’s take a look at the leaked specifications of the upcoming Micromax phones.
