Intex seems to be on a launching spree as the company has introduced another budget Aqua series smartphone, the Aqua X, which is now listed on the company’s site at a price of Rs. 2,699.
The Indian domestic handset maker last week launched the Intex Aqua Power HD for the Indian market, apart from listing the Intex Aqua 5X and Aqua 3G Star on its website.
The Intex Aqua X is a dual-SIM (GSM+GSM) device which runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat out-of-the-box. It comes with a 3.5-inch (320×480 pixels) HVGA display.
The smartphone is powered by a 1.3GHz dual-core processor coupled with 256MB of RAM. Unfortunately, there is no word on inbuilt storage capacity and expandable storage support on the Intex Aqua X.
It sports a 2-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, while there is a secondary 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera also onboard. On the connectivity front, the Intex Aqua X offers GPRS/ EDGE, Wi-Fi, Micro-USB, AGPS, and Bluetooth options. Notably, the Aqua X does not support 3G connectivity. The smartphone packs a 1200mAh battery and is listed in Black colour.
Last week, Intex launched the the Aqua Power HD at Rs. 9,444. The dual-SIM based Aqua Power HD runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat out-of-the-box and is upgradable to Android 5.0 Lollipop. The company also listed the Aqua 5X and Aqua 3G Star on its website at Rs. 3,990 and Rs. 3,490 respectively.
A research firm last week claimed that Intex was at the third spot in terms of smartphone shipments in Q4 2014. The report also revealed that Samsung topped the smartphone segment in India in terms of shipments, with a comfortable lead over Micromax.
According to Counterpoint’s report, Samsung shipped 27.4 percent, while Micromax shipped 19.5 percent of the smartphones in Q4. Intex was at the third spot with a 6.5 percent share, followed by Lava at 5.1 percent, and Lenovo (including Motorola) at 4.7 percent.
