Micromax has launched the Dual 5 in India as a part of a new series of phones in the “Dual” brand. The Micromax Dual 5 gets it’s name from the dual camera setup at the back. The phones sports two 13 MP Sony sensors. Of the sensors one is a colour and one a monochrome sensor, you also get F / 1.8 aperture and a Pixel size of 1.12u. The camera setup also has  PDAF and a Corning glass lens surface with a 6 lens type structure and a dedicated color temperature sensor which allows for accurate colour in the images.



The dual camera setup has features like a night shot that uses both sensors to get shots without the need of a flash. The front also has a 13 MP sensor and a soft flash which will illuminate your selfies. You also get features like beauty mode and quick capture.

The Micromax Dual 5 runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 chipset and has the Adreno 510 GPU. The phone has 4 GB of RAM and a Massive 128 GB storage. The front has a 5.5 AMOLED display with a 1920 x 1080p resolution along with a2.5D curve glass and which is the Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The phone has a  3200mAh Battery with QuickCharge 3.0 and a quick charger in the box.

The dual camera is definitely the highlight of the phone which gets a contrast PDAF using both the color and monochrome sensor, you also get a High Bokeh mode and a Night mode allowing you to boost exposure on your images using both the sensors.

The phone has a dedicated secure mode with a second layer of security provided by a military grade Independent security chip, CC EAL5 +. You can hide your important and private information behind a second layer of the OS, which is only accessible by your input method, and any other user will not be aware of this.

After several failed attempts of a password, or the removal of the SIM card without unlocking the phone , the persons image is captured by the front camera to let the owner know of unauthorised access.

The Dual 5 also has an IR blaster and stereoscopic multi-antenna that improves network range in low network areas. The dual SIM capability offers 4G LTE, and VoLTE across available carriers in India.

The Micromax Dual 5 goes on sale for a price of Rs. 24999 for the 128 GB model, and the phone will be available at authorised Micromax dealers, and the Micromax website. The Phone comes with a 1 year replacement warranty , where accidental damage will also be allowed, like water damage or screen breaking is also included in the warranty.

      128Gb memory and dual camera plus look at the warranty. The Phone comes with a 1 year replacement warranty , where accidental damage will also be allowed, like water damage or screen breaking is also included in the warranty.

        Why do i need to pay so much for 128Gb memory if i can simply buy a 1tb portable hard disk for around 3500rs, plus for one thousand more i can get the replacement warranty as well!!! To mmx — Thank you but no Thank you…

    • tharun reddy

      It is our Indian co. Product and not waste China product. Be proud to use our products rather China products.

      • Jatinder Singh Koranga

        yes i do believe in make in india notion but that doesn’t mean i’m going to let someone rip me off of my hard earned money. Moreover, mmx makes it’s phones in china maybe it just assembles the parts here. Nevertheless, it is still overpriced!!!!!

        • tharun reddy

          Jatinder ji, now Micromax is manufacturing in India only. No more manufacturing in China. One more thing waste opp f1 plus with just 64 GB is selling its phone without vault security feature and no sony dual cameras like dual 5 has at near Rs.29900. I don’t know hw can u expect a Sony dual cam, vault security and fast charge and even more massive 128 GB storage, what more required at low price.. In fact we r getting it at low price when compared to China companies.
