Micromax was amongst the vendors to bring the first range of Android Go devices back in 2018.

Micromax In 1b Base Variant Coming With Android 10 (Go Edition)

Micromax In 1b will come with the stock experience on top of Android experience

  • Micromax In 1b 2GB RAM variant will run on Android 10 (Go edition)
  • The 4GB RAM option of the phone will come with regular Android 10
  • Micromax In 1b is yet to go on sale in India

Micromax In 1b, the new smartphone by the Indian vendor that is yet to be available for purchase in the country, will be based on Google's Android 10 (Go edition), the company confirmed to Gadgets 360. Android 10 (Go edition) will be limited to the base variant of the Micromax In 1b that has 2GB RAM + 32GB storage, while its higher-end variant with 4GB RAM + 64GB storage model will run on the regular Android 10 operating system.

The listing on Flipkart shows the difference between the two variants of the Micromax In 1b that Micromax has confirmed to Gadgets 360.

Android 10 (Go edition), which is a stripped-down version of regular Android 10, will bring some performance improvements that should help the base variant of the new phone from Micromax keep up with its higher specced sibling. However, most users aren't likely to notice any changes when comparing the 2GB RAM variant of the In 1b with its 4GB counterpart as both will come with the stock experience.

A report by XDA Developers in July suggested that Google was planning to make Android Go mandatory for all new Android 10 smartphones launching with 2GB RAM or less, beginning from the fourth quarter of this year. That could be the reason why Micromax had to offer two distinct operating system versions on its newly launched entry-level smartphone.

Google announced Android Go as the streamlined version of its Android operating system back in December 2017. First devices based on Android Go were showcased at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in February 2018.

Interestingly, Micromax was amongst the first phone brands to introduce the initial range of Android Go devices and brought the Micromax Bharat Go as its first phone to run on the new platform. The company also expanded its Android Go portfolio by bringing the Micromax Spark Go in October 2018.
