Intex has announced the Intex Aqua T2. The USP of the phone happens to be that it is the cheapest or the most inexpensive Android phone available in the market today and what is worth noting is that it does not run any old half baked Android version but the latest Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. The device breaks the benchmark set by Celkon Campus A35 earlier last month as it is priced at Rs 2,699.
The specifications of the phone while modest are definitely in line for a device that is priced at just over INR 2.5K. The phone features a 3.5 inch display with a 320×480 resolution. It is powered by a 1.3 GHz Dual Core Chipset with 256 MB of RAM. As far as we can remember, this is the first Android device that has the 256 MB RAM released in the main market for the past year or so, and hence the performance would be rather curious. Internal memory of the device is 512 MB so we do not expect a lot of space to be there for your apps or multimedia. It is not clear whether there is any sort of expansion possible.
There is a 2 MP rear camera and the phone has 2G connectivity as well as WiFi and Bluetooth for connectivity. The phone will be available exclusively via Flipkart. Commenting on the launch of the device, Sanjay Kumar Kalirona, Mobile Business Head, Intex Technologies said:
Our latest offering in the Aqua collection – The T2 is a technology front runner available at an amazing price point. Amongst all handsets offering 4.4 Kitkat OS today, this one is definitely the lowest in the price segment and it comes with a 3.5 inch screen coupled with a 2G network. We are delighted to partner with e-commerce giant Flipkart and hope to further our association with more such innovative and best priced devices in the coming future.
The phone supports Dual Active SIMs and will be available in black and grey variants when it goes on sale over on Flipkart.
