Micromax made a comeback after a long gap in the smartphone segment with the all-new IN series of devices. The company launched the budget-centric in Note 1 and the entry-level in 1b earlier this month in the country. Micromax is aiming to take on the competition with a clean stock Android experience and 2 years of guaranteed Android updates. The in 1b retails in 2GB RAM and 4GB RAM configuration but by today’s standards, 2GB RAM on an Android smartphone is pretty barebone. Hence, Micromax has decided to go with the lighter version of Android on Micromax IN 1b – Android Go on the 2GB RAM model. Gadget360 was the first to discover the same, which has now been confirmed by the company.
Micromax IN 1b: Price in India
The price of Micromax In 1b is Rs. 6,999 for the 2GB RAM and 32GB storage variant. While the 4GB RAM and 64GB storage variant, at Rs. 7,999, costs just 1,000 more bucks. The smartphone retails in Purple, Blue, and Green color variants in the country. The smartphone was scheduled to get on sale for the first time on November 26, but unfortunately, the sale was canceled due to some logistics issue.
