Micromax has launched its latest Bharat 5 Pro smartphone to its Bharat line-up in India. Interestingly, Micromax Bharat 5 Pro debuted on the same day that Xiaomi launched it’s Redmi 5 smartphone in the country. Both the smartphones come with the same price tag and will go up against each other.
The key highlight of the Bharat 5 Pro is the battery. The phone comes with a powerful 5000mAh battery along with support for reverse charging which turns it into a power bank. Additionally, Micromax also claims that the phone comes with 21 days battery backup. Another key highlight of the phone is the face unlock feature and an LED flash module for the front camera.
