- Micromax In 1b base model runs on Android 10 (Go edition)
- Micromax In 1b 4GB RAM variant comes with the regular Android 10 OS
- The handset debuted earlier this month along with Micromax In Note 1
Micromax In 1b price in India was announced earlier this month and the smartphone was supposed to go on sale on Thursday, November 26th, but was postponed due to logistical issues. The entry-level device comes with specs like an HD+ display, up to 4GB RAM, and stock Android 10. Interestingly, the 2GB RAM variant runs on Android 10 (Go edition), as discovered by Gadgets360 on Flipkart and confirmed by Micromax. Android 10 (Go Edition) is a stripped-down version of the regular Android 10 OS for phones low on RAM and storage. It comes pre-loaded with Go-based apps like Google Go, Gmail Go, Maps Go, and so on.
Reports in July suggested that Google was planning to make Android Go mandatory for all new phones launching with 2GB RAM or less. This could be the reason why Micromax is offering two different OS versions for the In 1b. Interestingly, Micromax was among the first movers of Android Go as it launched the Micromax Bharat Go and later expanded the lineup with Micromax Spark Go in October 2018.
