Homegrown handset maker Intex on Thursday launched India’s first octa-core processor-powered device, Aqua Octa, priced at Rs 19,999.
The company had announced its strategic alliance with chipmaker MediaTek in November last year to bring the device in the Indian market.
Octa-core processor will enable the handset to offer speed of 1.7 GHz, enabling better user video and gaming experience.
The dual SIM handset features a six-inch HD display and is powered by Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system.
It also has dual cameras (13 megapixel rear camera and 5MP back camera), 16GB internal memory and 2 GB RAM. It also offers 5GB cloud memory along with 2300mAh battery.
“With the True Octa Core processor, Intex has achieved another industry first by bringing the fastest 6-inch Android smartphone ever for the technically savvy customer,” Intex Technologies Business Head (Mobile) Sanjay Kumar Kalirona said.
Intex added eight models to its Aqua series of smartphones last year.
While the device will be available for sale on online store Snapdeal from today, it will be sold across 40,000 retail outlets, Intex Squares (exclusive retail stores), hypermarkets and other e-commerce portals from January 15.
