Indian smartphone manufacturer Intex Technologies has launched its latest smartphone in the Indian market — Intex Aqua Lions E3. This latest addition to the company’s budget smartphone lineup has been launched in partnership with Gujarat-based retail chain Poojara Telecom.
The Intex Aqua Lions E3 comes with a 5-inch HD display with 720 x 1280 pixel screen resolution, providing a pixel density of 294ppi. The handset is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core Spreadtrum SC9832A processor with Mali 400 GPU, coupled with 2GB RAM.
It packs 16GB internal storage and supports microSD card slot, enabling users to further expand the phone’s storage capacity up to 32GB. The phone features an 8-megapixel camera at the back with an LED flash and a 5-megapixel camera at the front for taking selfies and video calling.
Connectivity options on this budget device include 4G VoLTE, WLAN, Bluetooth, FM radio, a 3.5mm audio jack, GPS, and a Micro-USB 2.0 port. It runs on Android 7.0 Nougat operating system out-of-the-box and we doubt if the phone will ever receive Android updates.
The Aqua Lions E3 is fuelled by 2500mAh battery that is claimed to provide a talk time of up to five to seven hours and a standby time of 200 to 250 hours on single charge. The device, which measures 145x73x8mm and weighs 154 grams, will be available in only one color — Black.
The phone will be available in Poojara Telecom outlets for a price of Rs. 5,499 (approximately $84). However, on the company’s official website, the price of the device mentioned is Rs. 6,999 (approximately $108). As part of the launch, the device comes with a Reliance Jio instant Rs. 2,200 cashback offer.
