Intex today launched a new budget Android smartphone in India, complete with support for 4G VoLTE. Dubbed the Aqua Lions 4G, the smartphone boasts of entry-level specifications and runs on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system. It has been priced at Rs.5499 in India and is going to be available in two color options – Grey and Champagne Gold.
The entry-level smartphone features a 5-inch display with FWVGA 854 x 480 resolution, resulting in a pixel density of 196 pixels per inch. Powering the smartphone is a 1.3 GHz quad-core Spreadtrum SC9832A chipset, paired with 1GB of RAM. You get 8GB of onboard memory, which can be expanded further by up to 64GB with a microSD card. The smartphone comes with a 5MP primary camera at the back, paired with an LED flash. On the front is a 2MP selfie camera, similar to other budget Android smartphones available in the same category.
Connectivity features include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, FM radio, and 4G LTE with VoLTE support. Keeping the lights on is a 2000mAh capacity battery, which, although small, isn’t a disappointment when we consider the pricing. In terms of dimensions, the Aqua Lions 4G measures 143.8 x 72 x 9.8mm and weighs in at 146.7 grams.
The Dual SIM smartphone comes with the MiFon Security app pre-installed, which features integrated smart tracking facility that helps track your device easily via the IMEI number in case it is lost. If someone tries to switch on the smartphone, the app automatically clicks the photo of the person and sends it to the registered email of the owner. Of course, for this to work, the phone will need to be connected to the internet. Intex is also including the Tap & Buy app on the smartphone, which uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to help users when shopping online.
Nidhi Markanday, Director & Business Head at Intex Technologies had this to say at the launch:
Basis the wonderful response we got for Aqua Lions 3G last year, we have come up with the Lions Series 2.0, powered with super speed 4G-Volte for data savvy youth. This will reinforce the brand association and enhance our connect with the young consumers. We are sure the all new Aqua Lion 4G-Volte with its powerful specs and innovative VAS features will surely be a delight for the consumers yet again.
