Intex, the home grown smartphone manufacturer, has been launching budget devices one after the other. Within a week of launching the Cloud 4G in India in similar price range, the company has now launched Intex Aqua Air II for a price of Rs. 4,690.
The device got listed on the official website of Intex, so it is expected to launch in the market soon. The Intex Aqua Air II sports a 5 inch TFT display and has a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels (FWVGA). It comes with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass to prevent the screen from getting scratched.
To power up the device, Intex has included a 1.2 GHz dual-core MediaTek MT6572W processor and its GPU is still unknown. The device comes with 1 GB of RAM and the internal storage of the phone is rated at 8 GB, which can be expanded up to 32 GB using a microSD card.
Intex Aqua Air II comes with a 2 MP camera with a single LED flash on the back and a 0.3 MP is there on the front. This new Intex smartphone has a dimension of 145.5 x 72.8 x 9.9 mm and weighs 154 grams.
As far as connectivity is concerned, the smartphone supports dual SIM card slots, which is capable of working with 3G network. Besides this, the device also supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and microUSB port.
Coming with a battery capacity of 2300 mAh, the device is rated to give a talktime of 4 hours on 3G network and 6 hours on 2G network. It will come only in one colour- Grey. It will soon be made available for Rs. 4,690.
The company launched a similar priced smartphone last week, and it comes with a bit feature set than this one. Intex Cloud 4G is a dual SIM device that comes with a display panel of 5 inches (480 x 854). It has a quad-core processor clocked at 1.5 Ghz, and is assited by 1 GB of RAM. It has an internal storage of 8 GB, which can be expanded up to 32 GB.
While the dimensions and weight are similar to this Aqua Air II, the major difference is in its connectivity option and pricing. The Cloud 4G supports 4G LTE connectivity and the device comes with a bit higher price tag of Rs. 4,999. Seeing this, the Cloud 4G seems to be a better option than the Intex Aqua Air II.
