Battery life is crucial to most mobile phone users in India and those models with longer talk-times and standby hours tend to sell more. Sensing this, Indian mobile phone company Micromax has launched a new 4G enabled smartphone the Micromax Bharat 5 Pro, at a reasonable price point. The overall features and specs of the phone don’t disappoint either.
The Micromax Bharat 5 Pro has a 5.2-inch HD display and gets protection through a 2D curved glass screen. The processor is a quad-core MediaTek chipset that clocks a speed of 1.3GHz, which is not very poor.
The phone comes with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage and a provision to expand to 64GB through a microSD card.
The rear camera on the Micromax Bharat 5 Pro sports a 12MP sensor and the front selfie camera is of 5MP. Micromax has added some additional features to both the cameras. The rear one has features like capability to click shallow depth-of-field images and bokeh effect. In addition, it has timelapse, beauty mode and panorama. The beauty mode features in the front camera also and an 83-degree wide angle lens has been fitted in this camera. There is the LED flash support as well for the front shooter.
Micromax has gone a step further and provided the face recognition feature to its new offering, the Micromax Bharat 5 Pro. Though the face recognition feature may not be as reliable as a fingerprint sensor in terms of the security of the device, it does help add to the company’s image of incorporating the latest technologies even in low cost smartphones.
As mentioned, the 5000mAh battery is being rightly highlighted by Micromax as the USP in the new phone it has launched. The battery, if fully charged, can last up to 2 days with heavy usage and a standby time of 21 days is being claimed by Micromax. The phone can even function as a power bank to charge other phones using the USB port.
With all these features, the Micromax Bharat 5 can be purchased at Rs 7,999. The device can be bought from offline retail outlets.
