Micromax today expanded its smartphone lineup with the Micromax Dual 5, as expected. Here, the selling point has to be dual rear cameras, which is something Micromax has focused attention on. Not to forget, this one is also the OEM’s first ever dual-camera smartphone. Priced at Rs 24,999, the Micromax Dual 5 goes on sale via Flipkart, Micromax e-Store, and offline stores starting April 10th.
Let us see what all specifications this phone has to offer and if they justify the price tag. It has a 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED screen with Corning Gorilla Glass protection layered on top. Design-wise, it is made of metal and has a unibody design. What is packed inside is an octa-core Snapdragon 652 processor combined with Adreno 510 GPU. That aside, it has 4GB RAM and 128GB internal memory.
The Micromax Dual 5 has a hybrid dual SIM slots that can add some extra storage using microSD. The device is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system with the OEM-specific custom skin on top.
As I mentioned previously, the dual-camera has to be the selling point of this smartphone. The reason being, both the cameras (colour and monochrome) are rated at 13MP alongside PDAF and dual-tone LED flash. For selfies, it carries another 13MP secondary camera up front for selfies. Below the rear camera sits a fingerprint scanner that supports up to five different fingerprints.
The battery is rated at 3200mAh that also supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0. As for connectivity, the Micromax Dual 5 gets 4G VoLTE, dual-band Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, 3.5mm jack, and USB Type-C port. The company has also announced 1-year replacement warranty with the purchase.
