Micromax is back with a new smartphone after quite a while, and we must say this is a good one. This impressive device is called the In Note 2, and it is all set to pose a major challenge to its contemporaries. Its highlight is, of course, the MediaTek Helio G95 which gives it major heft in the performance department and also guarantees a smooth gaming experience, among other things. Apart from the chipset, the phone also packs a lot of other goodies. And you get all this inside one of the best looking if not the best looking phone in this price segment. Here, we take a quick look at the Micromax IN Note 2 to tell you all about it.
Blazing fast speeds and awesome gaming capabilities thanks to MediaTek Helio G95 chipset
The chipset at the heart of this new Micromax phone is more than enough to grant it splendid performance for any task you throw at it. This MediaTek SoC has been designed to excel at user responsiveness during daily tasks like streaming video, instant messaging, clicking photos and capturing videos. The MediaTek Helio G95 gets a 5 percent performance boost in CPU benchmarks (Antutu) compared to the results of the already capable MediaTek Helio G90T.
This chip’s octa-core processor is home to two powerful Cortex-A76 cores clocked at 2.05GHz and six Cortex-A55 cores that are aimed at maintaining efficiency. The phone also comes with a liquid cooling system which will keep the temperature in check. Thanks to such a strong setup, the Micromax IN Note 2 is guaranteed to enable a satisfying user experience during daily usage and give its users nothing to complain about.
The MediaTek Helio G95 comes with the Mali-G76 MC4 GPU. This 900MHz unit shows an 8 percent performance boost in GPU benchmarks, and that only means good news for those who desire the best graphical performance from their games. They can expect fluid graphics and lag-free gaming no matter what they choose to play.
There’s also the MediaTek HyperEngine technology that applies enhancements through four key areas to ensure an uninterrupted gaming experience. Firstly, it offers dynamic resource management of CPU, GPU and memory for smoother performance in heavy-loading games.
The MediaTek HyperEngine technology also brings with it an Intelligent Speed Uplift, which can predict Wi-Fi and LTE concurrency triggers in just 13 milliseconds. Moreover, it can also connect to two Wi-Fi bands simultaneously for the lowest game connection latency. Plus, there’s end-to-end optimisation for smooth moves and rapid sense response. You get a 60 percent shorter GPU rendering-to-display latency, which allows you to smoothly move around in the game world without experiencing stutters or missed clicks.
Excellent 48MP quad-camera setup
The Micromax IN Note 2 packs an AI quad-camera setup comprising of a 48MP primary sensor, a 5MP ultra-wide sensor, and 2MP depth and macro sensors. You rarely see a phone offering an ultra-wide sensor in this price range, and we are glad that Micromax has not omitted it. As you can see, you are getting a versatile camera system that will serve you well in all situations.
The MediaTek Helio G95 provides further help in the photography department with its hardware depth engine, which brings smooth, real-time bokeh previews for the highest quality portraits. Photographers will indeed be pleased with the kind of quad-camera setup that has been made possible by this MediaTek chipset.
Stunning AMOLED display
The front of the Micromax IN Note 2 sports a 6.43-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display. This panel grabs a 20:9 aspect ratio and offers its visuals with 550 nits of peak brightness. Its AMOLED nature leads to high contrasts levels and vivid colours to make whatever content you’re viewing on it even more immersive. Again, you rarely see a smartphone offering an AMOLED display in this segment, and we are that users will appreciate this a lot.
The MediaTek Helio G95 enhances this phone’s visual capabilities with its AI Super Resolution feature. Meant for video streams and teleconferencing, this feature upscales low-resolution streams to HD in real-time. This is done with the help of the chipset’s integrated MediaTek AI Processing Unit (APU). It reduces network bandwidth by up to 7 percent without any perceptible difference in quality.
5,000mAh battery with 30W fast charging
A 5,000mAh battery has been granted to the Micromax IN Note 2. And this powerful unit is assisted by 30W fast charging support. Those looking for reliable battery backup can bank on the In Note 2 fully. Furthermore, the MediaTek Helio G95 has been granted several power-saving attributes that result in the slow discharge of the battery. These hardware-level optimisations make a big difference to the phone’s battery life.
Side-mounted fingerprint, stock Android, stunningly beautiful body, and more
Most of the phones in this segment sport quite a bland look, and this is where the Micromax IN Note 2 differentiates itself from the pack. The phone sports a dazzling glass finish with squared sides and beautifully crafted camera housing. It kind of looks like an amalgamation of the iPhone 13 and Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra’s design, and we are not complaining. It looks stunning and will surely catch some eyes when you take it out in your public outings. Other notable features of this smartphone include a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, stock Android 11, 3-in-1 dedicated SIM slot, 3.5mm headphone jack, and more.
With its powerful MediaTek Helio G95 chipset, premium design, super AMOLED display, and more, Micromax IN Note 2 is set to challenge its competitors in a big way. It is available for purchase through Flipkart and the company’s official website. The 4GB + 64GB version of the phone is retailing at just Rs 13,490. This is an introductory offer by Micromax, and the prices may increase in future. So, get your hands on this device before that happens.
