Micromax has launched their new smartphone, Micromax Dual 5 in India for Rs. 24,999. The new smartphone comes with dual rear cameras that Micromax is betting big on. As per them the camera performs well and both of these cameras on the back have a Sony IMX258 sensors and both of them are 13MP. One of the sensors only captures images in monochrome while the other one captures color. They both have a combined aperture of f/1.8 which is good for bright photos.
You can take advantage of these cameras to have different modes like Bokeh Mode, Low Light Mode etc. The dual camera setup is also good for 4K Ultra HD video capture which not many phones out there provide.
Micromax has also made sure the front facing camera is just as impressive as the rear cameras. On the front you have a 13MP shooter which features 1.12-micron pixel with Sony IMX258 sensor. It has an aperture of f/2.0 and also has a selfie flash. The camera software has features such as gesture control, GIF maker and even SmartBeauty mode in order to compliment the front camera.
Other than the impressive camera, the phone actually surprises us in a disappointing way in terms of specifications. You get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 octa-core processor which is coupled with 4GB RAM. It has a 5.5-inch 1080p full HD Super AMOLED display with 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top. It has a NTSC color gamut which looks good.
The phone runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow but it depends on Micromax if they are going to provide further updates or not. In theory, it would be appropriate to provide updates as the phone costs a whopping Rs. 24,999. It will be sold online as well as offline in different markets. Micromax Dual 5 smartphone will have the Micromax Care app for customer service and as per the company, they have promised a 24-hour service, and a 1-year replacement warranty.
