Micromax in Note 1 Pro spotted on Geekbench, may launch next month
Earlier, Micromax was reported to be working on a smartphone called In Note 1 Pro. Several details about the smartphone including its model number, chipset and memory capacity were also seen online. The smartphone was spotted on Geekbench with model number E7748. Additionally, the device was spotted online with MediaTek MT6785 chipset, which could be the upcoming MediaTek Helio G90 processor. The Note 1 Pro that appeared online for benchmark tests had 4GB of RAM and was running Android 11 OS.
The benchmark scoring platform revealed that Micromax in Note 1 Pro managed to achieve a single-core score of 519 and a multi-core score of 1,673. While these are the alleged details of the smartphone, it is still unclear whether the Micromax in Note 1 Pro will be launched next month. Other Micromax smartphones include the In2B, which is powered by Unisoc T610 octa-core processor and packs a 5,000mAh battery.
During the absence of Micromax, other companies such as Xiaomi and Realme have captured a large segment of the Indian smartphone market. These companies have products for a variety of smartphones, from the most affordable entry-level Android phones to top-of-the-line Android flagships. Micromax really needs to put together the best possible specs at the given price point to recapture its market share.
