Micromax today launched the Micromax Dual 5 handset in India. This Snapdragon 652 powered handset packed with AMOLED screen and 4GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. Overall a good handset but the price OMG Rs. 24,999.

Micoromax Dual 5 Camera
Micromax Dual 5 comes with 3 x 13MP camera. So there is 13MP + 13MP (f/1.8) camera on the back and 13MP on the front. All cameras come with SONY sensors. The back camera is Monochrome + RGB camera. It will stitch pictures together and you get excellent output (depth of field etc). In dual camera you get Bokeh mode, low light mode, night mode, anti haze, pro mode, light painting etc. The camera can shoot 4K videos and 3D videos too.
This is a dual Hybrid SIM handset that supports 4G LTE, 3G, 2G, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, USB Type C port, IR sensor and FM radio. A 3200 mAh battery powers up this smartphone with quick charge 3.0 support.
Micromax Dual 5 will be available on Flipkart from 10th April, for Rs. 24,999. I was expecting under Rs. 15K price tag, and was planning to buy one for the review, but not worth it. Cool 1, Honor 6x are way better with dual camera technology. If one has to spend Rs. 24,999 they would as well go for OnePlus 3T.
If I get this handset for review I will do it, but I am not going to buy this handset because after buying for Rs. 24,999 for review and hardly using it, I guess I will have to sell it for the price that customers were expecting Rs. 11,999.
