Intex has launched the Aqua i4+ smartphone for Rs 7,600. The phone comes with a 5-inch display, a quad-core processor, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and will be competing against the Micromax Canvas Juice A77 launched yesterday with a similar display for Rs 7,999.
Like the Micromax Canvas Juice A77, the Aqua i4+ comes with a 5-inch FWVGA (854×480 pixel) display. It is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and comes with 512MB of RAM, while the Canvas Juice A77 has a 1.3GHz dual-core processer with 1GB of RAM. The rear of the phone sports an 8-megapixel camera with autofocus and flash, and the front has a 1.3-megapixel camera, which seems better than the 5-megapixel rear camera and a VGA front-facing camera on the Canvas Juice A77. The phone is equipped with connectivity options like 3G (HSPA+), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS and supports OTA updates.
It houses a 2,000mAh battery which the company claims offers a talk time of 6 hours and a standby time of 220 hours.
