CENTRiC G5

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.

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.
