Micromax Bharat 5 Pro was launched in India on Wednesday, in a move that appears to be aimed to take on Xiaomi’s Redmi 5 launch that happened on the same day. The two phones share the same price – specifically, the base model of the Redmi 5. The biggest highlight of the Bharat 5 Pro is its 5000mAh battery, complete with a reverse charging feature that lets the smartphone be used as a power bank. Other highlights include a face unlock feature, and an LED flash module for the front camera.

Notably, the Redmi 5’s base model features just 2GB of RAM and 16GB of inbuilt storage, which stands in stark contrast to the Bharat 5 Pro’s 3GB RAM and 32GB storage offering.
