Post Reliance Jio's entry into the market a year ago, the country was plunged into the depths of a 4G-VoLTE revolution. The chipset will also be paired with Adreno 308 GPU. But the Micromax Bharat 5 is a clear cut victor when it comes to battery life.
Moving further, the Redmi 5A also sports a 13 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front facing shooter.
On the other hand, the Redmi 5 Plus is expected to feature a 5.99-inch screen that will carry support for FHD+ resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and an 18:9 aspect ratio. Finally, we talk about the target audience for the Redmi 5A and whether you should consider buying it. In case you are wondering which device to pick, we have compared below the Bharat 5 and Redmi 5A.
One of the biggest USP's of the previous Redmi 5A was its lasting battery and this time the company claims to have radically improved on that end. Powered by 1.4GHz Quad-core Snapdragon 425 processor, it comes in two storage options - 2GB RAM + 16GB storage and 3GB RAM +32GB storage.
A 3000mAh battery powers the Redmi 5A and it is touted to provide up to 8 days of standby time to the smartphone.
Front camera: On the front, the Redmi5A comes with a 5megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture.
However, Xiaomi is also giving a Rs 1,000 discount on the first 50 lakh Redmi 5A phones it sells, bringing down the price to effectively Rs 4,999 and 5,999. With a 5000 mAh powerhouse, Bharat 5 has stolen the competition from Desh Ka Smartphone that embeds a 3000 mAh battery. Xiaomi has taken care of it with the Redmi 5A, giving it a dedicated microSD card slot apart from the dualSIM slots. Other connectivity features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and A-GPS. Software: The phone runs Android Nougat-based MIUI9. After the introductory scheme expires, Xiaomi will sell the device at Rs 5,999 for the base variant and Rs 6,999 for the higher 3GB/32GB variant.
On the purchase of Micromax Bharat 5, customers will get 50GB free data.
On the heels of Xiaomi launching their affordable Redmi 5A, another new handset from Micromax's ultra-affordable Bharat series, the Bharat 5 was rolled out for Indian consumers. It has a skin for its Android phones and tablets - MIUI.
