With the Reliance Jio’s offer for the free calling and internet and the growing demand for fast speed internet and digitization of most of the services, the 4G ecosystem in the country is growing at a very rapid pace.
The demand for the 4G enabled handsets is increasing and every company is trying to tap into the growing demand. The indian electronics company, Intex also has launched a budget 4G enabled smartphone, Intex Aqua Amaze+ at a price of just 6290 INR only.
The phone will be available in three different colors- black , blue and grey. The build quality is average which seems fine because of its cheap price tag. The smartphone has 9.4 mm thickness and it weighs 128 grams with the battery.
The phone supports a 4.7 inch HD IPS display (720p) with 312 PPI (pixels per inch) and a great screen to body ratio of 77.80% as claimed by the company.
The phone is powered by a 1.3 GHz Speadtrum processor which is slightly inferior to those of Snapdragon and Mediatek processors.
There is 8 GB internal storage in the phone with 1 GB RAM. If anyone finds the internal storage a little less for their use, they can extend the internal storage via micro-SD card up to 64 GB. An interesting feature of this phone is 5 MP front and back camera sensors with LED flash.
It’s a dual sim 4g enabled phone (micro+nano sim slots) with other connectivity options like Wifi, Bluetooth, 3.5mm jack etc. The phone has a 2000 mAh battery which should be good enough for a moderate single day use.
Aqua Amaze+ will also have pre loaded apps like LFTY, Gameplay, Vdioplay.
At the launch event, the company said,”At Intex, we are constantly upgrading our products and services. By launching Aqua Amaze+ we are creating a reflection of our users’ desires to meeting their needs. We are happy to launch this 4G-enabled smartphone for our users and are confident of expanding our reach.”
The phone might have a hard time competing with other smartphones like Redmi 3S , Lenovo Vibe K5, Yu Yureka which are in the same price category but offer better processors and battery size too. The phone will be available via both online and offline channels.
