Intex Aqua Crystal Plus Packs Android 7.0 Nougat at ₹6799
New Delhi-headquartered Intex Technologies has launched a new smartphone with Android 7.0 Nougat. Starting its journey from manufacturing computer peripherals, Intex Technologies expanded its product portfolio to TV’s, A/C’s, Android smartphones, and Android smartwatch. The latest handset Intex Aqua Crystal Plus is decently priced at ₹6,799 and is in direct competition against Xiaomi Redmi 3S.
Intex Aqua Crystal Plus Specifications:
The smartphone features a 5-inch HD display with 720x1280 pixel resolution at 296 ppi. With glass and metal body finish, the handset looks decent. Looking at the specifications, the Intex Aqua Crystal Plus is powered by a 1.25 quad-core MediaTek MT6737 chip and Mali T720 GPU for graphics. It has an inbuilt 2GB RAM and 16GB native internal storage space further expandable up to 128GB via microSD card.
On the photography front, the new Intex Aqua Crystal Plus sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash support to take decent photos and 1080p videos. The other 5-megapixel front camera is meant for selfies and videos at 720p.
The Intex Aqua Crystal Plus is a dual SIM (supports micro and nano SIM) smartphone, unlike Hybrid SIM handsets. Connectivity wise, the smartphone offers 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, FM, USB OTG support etc. Going by the craze, it supports 4G LTE for Band 40 used by LTE networks in India.
Impressive Design but Lacks Performance:
The smartphone packs a 2100mAH non-removable battery and is definitely a poor sign at this price. The company claims to offer 250 hours standby time and up to 6 hours of talk time. When budget phones are making way for 4000mAh batteries, the Intex decision is surely a huge letdown. However, the handset makes it a point by offering Android 7.0 Nougat.
By going through design and price, the Intex smartphone competes against Xiaomi Redmi 3S but in reality, it can’t make it against the India’s fast selling mobile.
