“We launched our Bharat range in May and we have sold 3 million handsets under the series. With today’s launch and one more device coming in the next few days, we aim to sell 6 million Bharat phones by March 2018,” Micromax chief marketing and chief commercial officer Shubhodip Pal told reporters.

The ‘Bharat 5’, which was unveiled on 1 December, features 5.2 inch-HD display, 1 GB RAM, 16 GB internal memory (expandable up to 64 GB), 5 MP front and rear cameras, and 5,000 mAh battery. Priced at Rs 5,555, the handset will be available at retail stores from next week.

“Data affordability, connectivity and ease of using technology are the three barriers for the users to get a connected experience. We want to connect more Indians to the internet and Bharat series addresses all these three issues at an affordable price,” Pal said.
