Intex Cloud Y3 and Y13 also available
Just a few days after getting spotted on the official website, Intex’s new Aqua i2 smartphone is now on sale via e-retailer Flipkart and Amazon for INR 8,499.
The smartphone features 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 5-inch FWVGA display and Android 4.2. It also comes with 1700 mAh battery, 5MP rear camera and 2MP front camera. In addition, Intex Aqua i2 packs 3G support, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage and microSD card slot.
All of these specifications are exactly same as other budget phablets available in the country. There is no USP of the phone and even the pricing is similar to other offerings. I don’t see how the company like Intex plan to compete with such products in a market where there is no dearth of choice.
Aqua i2 isn’t the only new Intex smartphone on sale, Cloud Y3 and Y13, which were also listed on the company website recently, are now available at Flipkart and Amazon.
Intex Cloud Y3 has been priced at INR 4,890, while Cloud Y13 is being sold at INR 5,999.
A quick look at the specifications of both the smartphones:
Cloud Y3: 4-inch WVGA display, 1.2GHz dual-core MediaTek MT6572 processor, dual-SIM support, Android 4.2, 3.2MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera, 512MB of RAM, 2G, and 1500 mAh battery.
Cloud Y13: Same specifications as Cloud Y13 plus 3G support.
Update: Along with the aforementioned three new Android smartphones, Intex has also started selling Intex Cloud Y17 phone in the country. It is now available at Amazon.in for INR 7,199. The phone features 4.5-inch FWVGA display and 5MP rear camera. Rest of the specifications are same as Cloud Y3.
