Micromax Bharat 5 With 5000mAh Battery Launched For Rs. 5555

Micromax Bharat 5 With 5000mAh Battery Launched For Rs. 5555

Chinese smartphone company on Thursday unveiled the Redmi 5A which was promoted as "desh ka smartphone" and 'the smartphone for everyone'. And if you're one of them, it is likely to be confused between the two new phones. However, the Micromax phone does have a slightly bigger 5.2-inch HD screen.

The low-priced smartphone from Micromax comes in a polycarbonate shell. The Bharat 5 too runs Android Nougat with a custom UI, but there is no information on the software updates so far. The Redmi 5A has a plastic back with a metal-like finish which gives it a more premium feel. It will be available in Dark Grey, Gold, and Rose Gold colour variants.

Manu Kumar Jain, Xiaomi India Managing Director, said that there is a Jio cashback offer, especially for the Redmi 5A. Priced at Rs 5,555, Bharat 5 will be available through offline channels across the country. The newest Bharat phone features a 5-megapixel sensor with LED flash on both the front and back.

Xiaomi Redmi 5A features the MIUI 9 powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor that ensures easy handling of daily tasks such as video playback, gaming sessions, and much more. Besides the smartphone offers dual SIM, 4G with VoLTE, Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n), Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, and a micro USB port.

Under Xiaomi-Jio Better Together Offer, customers get Redmi 5A 2GB effectively at Rs. 3,999 and the 3GB variant at Rs. 5,999.

But if pricing is the matter of conclusion, Xiaomi Redmi 5A will be available at Rs. 4,999 only for the first 5 million buyers.

Up front, the Micromax Bharat 5 sports a 5.2-inch IPS LCD display with 720p resolution and 2.5D curved tempered glass on the top. The Redmi 5A runs on a 3,000mAh battery with 5V/1A charging which the company claims can deliver up to 8days of standby time. It says that the chipset has a 1.3GHz 64-bit quad core CPU from which we can deduce that the Micromax Bharat 5 has a MediaTek MTK6737 chipset which is found in plenty of other budget offerings. Timing is of the essence here, so be ready to book your phone at a discounted price at 12 noon onwards.
