Indian homegrown smartphone brand, Micromax is making its comeback to smartphone market yet again. The company has been in disarray for more than two years now due to the several Chinese brands invasion in India. Micromax today has announced its flagship phone, the Micromax Dual 5 featuring dual rear camera at the back. The smartphone is priced at Rs. 24,999 and comes with some decent specifications.
Starting off with the USP of the Dual 5, it has two 13MP rear facing cameras, and two are Sony sensors. One 13MP sensor is used to capture monochrome shots, whereas the other 13MP sensor captures standard RBG shots. At the same time, Micromax has added a 13MP front-facing camera as well for selfies lovers.
The Micromax Dual 5 features a 5.5-inch fullHD Super AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection on top. The Dual 5 is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 SoC. The phone comes with 4GB of RAM under-the-hood and carries 128GB onboard storage. The storage can be expandable up to 128GB via a microSD card slot.
