Micromax Re-Enters Market With New ‘in’ Series Phones; Will It Succeed This Time?

New Delhi: After a long hiatus, homegrown Micromax is back with new smartphones hoping to capitalise on anti-China sentiments.


Sales of some Chinese brands have fallen in the last two quarters. Micromax is also using #InForIndia to attract Indians towards the brand.

Micromax, this time, has gone in for aggressive pricing just like Xiaomi and Realme with the ‘in note 1’ and ‘in 1b’.
