Few days back Intex announced that it will launch India’s first MT6592 Octa core chipset smartphone pretty soon and yesterday Intex did showcase this new smartphone which has been named Intex i17. Apart from the presence of 8 cores, something that makes this phone very appealing is the pricing. The 16 GB variant will be priced below 20,000 INR!
The 1.7 GHz MT6592 octa core chipset will incorporate Mali-450 MP4 GPU clocked at whooping 700 MHz. The display resolution however won’t utilize this extra quad core GPU Power. The RAM capacity is 2 GB which should provide with efficient multitasking.
The 6 inch IPS Display in this smartphone will sports 720p HD resolution, which won’t tax the Chipset as much as 1080p displays. The pixel density will be 244ppi which is not much considering the display size.
The Phablet is quite slim at 7 mm. The rear camera has a 13 MP sensor and you can record full HD 1080p videos. The front camera is of 5 MP is also present for video calling. The Android 4.2 jelly bean present on this device isn’t as fancy as Android KitKat but won’t be a deal breaker.
The battery capacity is 2300 mAh which is expected to last one day with moderate usage. It’s too soon to judge how much power hungry MT6592 processor will be. Connectivity features include 3G, WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth. You will also get Dual Yamaha frontal speakers for classic multimedia experience.
This phone will hit the stores in January this year along with much awaited Moto G. We are eager to spend more time with it and determine how much value do the extra cores add to the Android experience. For further details you can read our Intex i17 Initial Hands On Review.
