Micromax Dual 5 dual camera smartphone to launch on 29 March

Local smartphone maker Micromax is back in action after what appears be a pause in its product release cycle since its bold rebranding in mid 2016. After putting out teasers, the company has now sent out an official invite and has set the launch date for a new smartphone on 29 March at 12 PM.

The invite gives out not just the name, Micromax Dual 5, with a new hashtag and logo, but even gives us a glimpse of the back of the dual camera smartphone. There have been teasers in the past that have hinted at this new feature as well. The move makes sense because even an international brand like Huawei has launched its Honor 6X with a dual rear camera set up at just Rs 12,999.

Micromax could take the lead provided its dual camera offering is priced right, and delivers on the basics along with image quality.

As for its features, previous teasers have hinted that the smartphone could have two cameras as its primary set up. Tagged as the E4815 via a leak from China, the smartphone will arrive with 4G bands along with VoLTE support. Expect a 13 MP + 5 MP camera setup on the back and a 5 MP camera module up front for selfies.

According to the report by Mobile India, the smartphone will be equipped with a metal unibody design and a 5.5-inch IPS display while being powered by an Octa-core MediaTek MT6750T processor clocked at 1.5 GHz. The smartphone will sport a 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage with the option to expand the storage. Last but not the least, the smartphone also includes a fingerprint scanner embedded in the home button.
