Micromax will make a comeback in the Indian smartphone market with the launch of “IN” smartphones in India. The company is rumoured to launch two new smartphones at the Micromax IN series launch event on November 3, namely the Micromax IN 1 and Micromax IN 1a. Ahead of the launch, Micromax has given us the first look at the design. The Micromax IN 1 and IN 1a will sport an “X” shaped pattern on the back. The company has previously teased a couple of other internals that will be packed inside the Micromax IN 1 and IN 1a.

The teaser video uploaded on Twitter by Micromax India shows the rear panel’s design. The rear panel will have a glossy look with an X-shaped pattern. The “IN” branding can be seen at the bottom of the rear panel. We are not sure if both smartphones will carry the same design. The rear panel is likely to be made of plastic considering both devices will be priced in the budget segment.
The company recently confirmed that the Micromax IN series will feature a MediaTek Helio G35 and MediaTek Helio G85 processor, under the hood. Although it did not explicitly mention which phones will pack the two processors, the rumour mill has previously churned out enough information for us to know.
