We have lately seen a number of domestic as well as multinational brands adding the quad-core processors factor in their mobile devices and today, Intex has also stepped in to the quad-core processor powered smartphone race with the launch of this new smartphone. Knowing that most of its competitors are offering a huge screen at this price point, Intel has also played it safe with the Aqua Wonder, which carries a qHD 4.5-inch capacitive IPS touchscreen with 540X960 pixels. The phone runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly bean operating system, features a MediaTek MT6589 quad-core processor, and 512MB of RAM along with 1.93GB of internal memory which can be expanded up to 32GB with a microSD card.
It has an 8-megapixel rear camera with auto-focus and a 2-megapixel front camera which supports video calling. Other key features include dual-SIM capability, support for 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS, and a 1,800mAh battery that offers up to 3.5 hours of talk time and about 3 days of standby time. The phone also has Gravity, Motion, Light and Proximity sensors and comes with pre-loaded applications like Flipkart, Facebook, Google Maps, Nimbuzz, Google Docs and YouTube.
With such features and at this price point, the device will be in competition with the recently released Xolo Q800 with 4.5-inch display, Android Jelly Bean, 8-megapixel camera and more for Rs 12,499. Other devices in this league include Karbonn Titanium S5, Micromax Canvas HD A116 and WickedLeak Wammy Titan 2 all of which offer the quad-core power and come with screen sizes measuring above 5-inches.
