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.
