Domestic handset-manufacturer Micromax on Wednesday launched a new smartphone, called Dual 5, at a price of Rs 24,999.

The phone, which will be available offline and online on e-commerce platform Flipkart, will go on sale on April 10 and will be available in a Gold colour variant.

In terms of specifications, the Micromax Dual 5 will come with a fullHD 5.5-inch display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The phone will sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor along with 4GB RAM and 128GB internal storage expandable upto 128GB via microSD card.

The Dual 5 comes with a vertical dual rear camera setup with LED flash. Both the rear cameras have 13-megapixel Sony sensors. While one sensor is monochrome, the other one is RGB. This means that users will be able to take Bokeh effect shots. The front camera is also a 13-megapixel sensor that comes with a soft front flash for better selfies.

Micromax is playing up the camera of the smartphone and claims that it will be able to take good pictures in low-light. The phone will also come with several camera modes such as pro mode, panoroma and slow motion.

The Dual 5, which will draw power from a 3,200 mAh battery that supports Quick Charge, will come with a fingerprint sensor and a dedicated customisable key for quick actions. Micromax claimed that only 10 minutes of charging the phone will give it juice for 4 hours. The customisable button can be set as a quick launch button for Camera and other actions.

The company claims that the phone will not shut down once a wrong PIN is entered too many times and if the right PIN is not entered in a hour, it will wipe all the data on the phone.

Micromax also claims that the phone will come with an anti-snoop mode. If someone enters a wrong PIN, then the camera takes a photo of the person and notifies the owner of the phone, the company said.
