Micromax In 1 smartphone will go on first sale today. This latest budget smartphone from the Indian smartphone company ticks many right boxes. It has a big display, a decent processor, good cameras, and a long-lasting battery. All of this makes the Micromax IN 1 compete aggressively against the likes of Redmi 9 Prime and Realme Narzo 30A. Micromax started what could be easily termed as the second innings in India's online smartphone market to capitalise on the anti-China sentiment and give a tough fight to Chinese players. Micromax was once the top-selling brand in India but it lost ground to Samsung, Xiaomi, and other brands. It wants that title back, as well.

The launch of the Micromax In 1 took place last week, nearly two months after the first two In-branded phones, In Note 1 and In 1B, were launched in January. I spent some time with the new Micromax In 1 and wrote about my experience in the review. I am breaking it down into a few pointswith specifications, so that you get an idea of how good or bad the phone is. Before that, a quick rundown of sale, price, availability details of the new Micromax In 1.
