Micromax made a comeback last year with the IN Note series, and now the IN Note has arrived after a year. The IN Note 2 is a significant improvement over the prior model in many ways. Micromax has only released it in a single storage variant, although it comes in two colours. The Micromax IN Note 2 will be available for purchase on Flipkart and Micromax’s website on January 30 at 12 p.m.
In 2020, Micromax re-entered the Indian smartphone market with the IN Note 1. The IN Note 1 was crucial to the brand because a lot was riding on it, delivering on its promises. Micromax IN Note 2 is a generation ahead of its time, and it’s here to carry on the heritage. It appears to be a worthwhile upgrade for an introductory price of Rs 12,490.
The IN Note 2 comes with a few improvements over the previous model. The design is the most significant improvement over the previous model, closely approaching the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. The phone’s back is glass, and the display is covered by a Gorilla Glass 3 screen. The display is 6.4 inches in size and has a Full HD+ AMOLED panel with a 20:9 aspect ratio and a brightness of 550 nits.
The looks are excellent for the budget, but my admiration for this phone does not end there. The IN Note 2 sports a large 6.43-inch AMOLED display with a Rich-HD+ resolution that is crisp and full of brilliant colours, making watching movies a pleasurable experience.
There’s a MediaTek Helio G95 chipset inside, but just 4GB of RAM is included by default. The phone is presently available with Android 11 and a stock interface from Micromax, but there is no word on whether or when it will receive the Android 12 update. For biometric authentication, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor is present.
The IN Note 2 has a quad-camera arrangement on the back, including a 48MP main sensor, a 5MP ultra-wide camera, a 2MP macro, and a 2MP depth camera. A 16MP sensor sits in a punch-hole cutout on the front. Finally, the IN Note is powered by a 5000mAh battery with 30W quick wired charging. According to Micromax, the phone can be charged to 50% in under 30 minutes.
