Intex has launched a new low cost handset, named Intex Aqua Y2 Remote, priced at 4,390 INR. As the name suggests, this new smartphone brings Universal Remote, a feature generally reserved for high end or mid range, for a very modest price.
Intex claims that you can use this to control TV, AC, Set Top Boxes, DVD Players and more. Other than this highlight, other hardware is in line with what you would expect at these prices.
The usual 4 Inch WVGA (800 X 480) IPS LCD display is powered by 1.2 GHz MediaTek MT6572 dual core chipset with 512 MB RAM and 4 GB internal storage. Yes, the hardware is reminiscent of 2013 smartphones, however software is more acceptable Android 4.4 KitKat.
Photography will reply on its 5 MP rear shooter, notably supported by Dual LED flash, and a 2 MP front camera for selfies. There is a 1500 mAh battery inside which again, isn’t anything to brag about. Other features include 32 GB MicroSD support, 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS.
“The new Aqua Y2 Remote is the most reasonable smartphones with a soothing display to suit the user requirement. As the name suggests, the smartphone turns into a remote once synced with the products. Designed for the users on the go, the Y2 remote is available on different e-portals as well as on various retail stores distributed across the country”, said Sanjay Kumar Karilona, Mobile Business Head at Intex Technologies.
Intex has been active in ultra low cost market off late and the domestic manufacturer indeed tasted some sweet unexpected success recently. The company sold over 1.7 million smartphones last quarter, which is impressive to say the least.
