The price of the two variants is Rs 6,999 and Rs 7,999 respectively.
InFocus Turbo 5 will be an Amazon exclusive smartphone. It will go on sale from July 4. InFocus, which is a US-based firm, is launching the new smartphone in two colour options- Mocha gold and Fine gold. The Turbo 5 has a massive 5,000 mAh battery, which is said to offer up to two days of total usage and this could help the smartphone stand out in the crowded budget phone market.
