Micromax, the largest Indian mobile manufacturer, quietly launched probably-their-best-smartphone yet. The Dual 5 is a dual-sim 5’5″ inch display with a 1080p resolution to bring colors back to life.
Micromax Dual 5 Features and Specifications
Priced at Rs. 24,999 the Micromax Dual 5 is packed with 1.4GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 652. The same processor that powers the best Android smartphones in the market right now like the Google Pixel, One Plus 3T etc. The highly functional device comes with a spacious 4GB RAM. That’s equivalent to playing a Grand Theft Auto game on your PC! Micromax is bringing this phone out to the world with a sparkle. 128GB storage that can be expanded to another 128GB via external microSD card. That’s roughly 250GB to keep all your important files, photos and videos in one place. The slick design gives it an admirable feel when you hold it in your hands. It melts into your palms with those curves. Damn baby! The legend says that it is built from a single slab of aircraft-grade aluminum. It features 3D antenna technology to help keep the antennae on the metal frame of the smartphone. Micromax is also boasting an additional customizable key and the integration of a panic button (used by pressing the power button thrice). The Indian-based company also proposed a SafeSwitch feature which is meant to prevent loss of data upon theft. If the SIM card in the phone is pulled out, and if the prompted password is not entered within 30 seconds, the phone will lock itself including all the hardware buttons – thus, it can’t be turned off. It also allows for tracking. After 60 minutes of the SIM removal, and if no password is entered, the phone will be wiped. Even without the SIM removal trigger, if someone tries hacking the password or pattern lock, their photo will be taken and sent to a pre-selected number. An interesting approach to mobile theft by Micromax.
