Indian smartphone vendor Intex on Thursday released a new budget Android smartphone in the country. Part of the company’s Aqua line-up, the new Intex Aqua 4X has been priced at just INR 2,999 and will be sold via ebay India.
At such an enticing pricing, the consumers will get a 4-inch WVGA display, 1GHz dual-core processor, dual-SIM support and 1300 mAh battery. The Aqua 4X runs on Android 4.2.2 and comes with 256MB of RAM, 512MB of on-board storage, microSD card slot, and 3G support. Intex has also included 2MP rear camera and VGA front camera on the smartphone.
“The Aqua 4X will be the lowest priced 3G phone in a 4-inch category, making it a pertinent phone for consumers across all age groups,” said Sanjay Kumar Kalirona, who is Intex’s business head for mobiles.
While the specifications are quite decent, the presence of Android 4.2.2 is slightly worrisome but not much can be expected at INR 3K. In my person opinion, Aqua 4X seems like a far better options for the consumers looking for buy a smartphone in this budget than slightly cheaper Firefox OS smartphones.
