According to earlier reports, Micromax will be using the MediaTek Helio G35 and Helio G85 processors in their new phones. To recall, MediaTek Helio G85 processor was launched back in May as a gaming-focused processor. It is already being used in a number of popular smartphones including the Realme Narzo 20 and the Redmi Note 9.
MediaTek Helio G35 was launched in June and it was aimed at budget gamers. The chipset is already available in devices like the Realme C11 and the Redmi 9.
To recall, Micromax co-founder Rahul Sharma in multiple interviews has said that the devices in the new series will be priced between Rs 7,000 to Rs 25,000. He has also said that the devices will be focused on gamers and as of now, the company is not looking to bring phones under the Rs 7,000 price bracket due to its focus on providing powerful smartphones. He has also confirmed that these devices will run Google’s Android operating system in its stock avatar and will come with no bloatware or ads.
According to an earlier report by The Mobile Indian, the budget option in the new “IN” series will sport a 6.5-inch HD+ display paired with the Helio G35 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB storage, a dual camera setup and a 5,000mAh battery.
