Micromax recently launched its first dual-camera smartphone, the Dual 5, in India. The smartphone is now all set to go on sale in India today. Priced at Rs 24,999, the device will be available for purchase from Flipkart, Micromax e-Store and through offline stores starting from today.
The company has added a host of interesting features on its flagship device. To start with, the device comes with a dual rear camera setup having two 13-megapixel sensors, one being a monochrome sensor and one being a regular RGB sensor. Another unique feature of the Micromax Dual 5 is its security. The device boasts dedicated hardware security chip along with the software security features, which the company claims make the device unhackable. To explain, fingerprint password imaging and other passwords are usually stored at a software level but in Dual 5 all the user credentials and security passwords are encrypted and saved in the dedicated security hardware chip.
For the specs, the device comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) AMOLED display with 2.5D curved display and Corning Gorilla Glass protection. On the inside, we have a 1.8 GHz Octa-Core Snapdragon 652 chipset coupled with Adreno 510 GPU for graphics. Further, the device comes with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage which is further expandable via microSD card which sits in a hybrid dual SIM slot. The device runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Micromax’s own UI on top.
Coming to the USP (Unique Selling Proposition) of the device i.e. the dual camera set up at the back, Micromax Dual 5 comes with two 13 MP dual Sony sensors ( one with colour and one with monochrome sensor) paired with F / 1.8 aperture, Pixel size 1.12um pixel size, PDAF, Corning glass lens surface, 6 lens type structure and a dedicated color temperature sensor. At the front, we have another 13-megapixel sensor with soft selfie flash to eliminate the unnatural pic under regular flash.
Lastly, the device packs in a 3200 mAh battery inside which also supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0. For connectivity, we get USB Type-C port for charging and data syncing, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and all the necessary sensors. The device comes with a one-year replacement warranty.
