The CENTRiC G5 is the third smartphone released by CENTRiC after the CENTRiC S1 and G3. The Indian OEM is seeking to dominate the budget smartphone market and ward off competition from the likes of Oppo, Xiaomi and OnePlus.
The CENTRiC G5 is the third phone released by Indian OEM CENTRiC in the budget category and looks a little bit like the G3 though it has a better battery and face recognition.
Design and Display
Noticeable from first glance is the teardrop notch unlike the bigger version in the G3. The bottom chin is the same size like that of the G3.
The dual camera placement at the back is vertical instead of horizontal as seen in the G3. The LED flash is placed between the camera and the fingerprint sensor. The body is likely made of plastic.
The CENTRiC G5 has 6.21 inch IPS HD+ display with resolution at 1520×720 pixel. It still has a 19:9 aspect ratio and made with 2.5D curved glass.
A 13 MP primary camera adorns the back of the phone and can capture images with 4160 x 3120 pixels and record 1080p videos at 30 fps. It is assisted by a 2MP depth sensor. The selfie camera is 8MP and can be used for Face unlocking, unlike the G3.
The CENTRiC G5 uses the 64 bit Octacore MediaTek Helio P22 (MT6762) SoC which is also fabricated using the 12nm technology.
The cores consist of Quad ARM Cortex A53 cores clocked at 2.0 GHz and Quad ARM Cortex A53 chips clocked at 1.5GHz. It uses the IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU clocked at 520 MHz.
There is also an LPDDR3 3GB of RAM space clocked at 933 MHz alongside a 32 GB storage space. Memory can be increased via the use of microSD card but it uses the second SIM slot.
