The dual-SIM smartphone features a 5.2-inch HD (1280x720) display. Up front, there is a 5MP selfie camera with facial recognition and f/2.0 aperture.

On December 30, Xiaomi introduced the Redmi 5A smartphone in India at a price of Rs 5,999 and Rs 7,999. The phone comes with a 5.00-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 720 pixels by 1280 pixels at a PPI of 294 pixels per inch. Therefore, the Micromax Bharat 5 has been priced at Rs 5,555. The Bharat 5 comes with OTG support which means the Bharat 5 also doubles up as a powerbank.

On the comparison grounds, the Bharat 5 gets the power from a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek processor that is coupled with 1GB RAM and 16GB storage space.

The Xiaomi Redmi Y1 runs Android 7.0 and is powered by a 3080mAh non removable battery. The array of sensors on the device include an acccelerometer, a proximity sensor and ambient light sensor. 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. The latest entry to the list is Micromax Bharat 5 - the successor to the Bharat 4.

If the latest report is anything to go by, Indian fans will get Rs 1,000 cashback on purchasing the "Desh ka Smartphone" touted as the Xiaomi Redmi 5A. Both the new and existing Vodafone users buying the device will get 10GB free data per month for five months that totals to 50GB of free data.
