It shelters a 16-megapixel shooter, which allows user to take selfies and make video calls, in its punch-hole.
On the rear panel, the Micromax IN Note 1 features a quad-camera setup which comprises of a 48-megapixel primary lens followed by a wide-angle 5-megapixel lens, a 2-megapixel macro lens, and a 2-megapixel depth assist shooter.
Further, the Helio G85 chipset alongside 4GB of RAM fuels the IN Note 1. It offers the user with a 64GB / 128GB option of internal storage.
