Micromax, once the country’s number one smartphone brand, returned to the Indian market at the beginning of last month with the In series. Using the ‘Make in India’ slogan, the local company came up with two smartphones called In Note 1 and In 1b. The company also claimed that In Note 1 was the first flash sale on Flipkart. There was even good feedback from customers But this time a slightly different tune is in the throat of Rahul Sharma, the founder and CEO of Micromax He said that the battery of In Note 1 is ‘Made in China’ However, he also clarified why the company had to lean towards Chinese batteries.
In the first episode of ‘Let’s Talk INdia Ke Liye’ on Micromax India’s YouTube channel, Rahul Sharma has openly answered the questions of the fans about Micromax. One such question was, are phones one hundred percent ‘Made in India’? Answering the question, Rahul Sharma said that the phones are completely made in India. Among the three factories of the company in this country, Vivadi factory is now being used to produce In phone. However, not all components are made in India.
Giving an example, he said that the battery of Note 1 has been imported from China. However, the battery of the other phone 1b in the series is completely Main in India. The main reason behind this is that the company could not collect the certificate to manufacture the specific battery of Note 1 in India. However, they are optimistic that the battery will be manufactured here in the next quarter.
It is learned that the upcoming product of Micromax will have Widevine L1 support. Rahul Sharma also hinted that Micromax could also bring phones with high refresh rate and liquid cooling system for gaming. While Micromax’s phone is now available on Flipkart and the company’s own website, the company is in talks with its retailer community to make it available offline soon.
