Intex has launched an upgraded version of large battery smartphone Intex Aqua Power, named Intex Aqua Power HD. As the name suggests this new smartphone will replace the 5 Inch FWVGA display on its predecessor with a 720p HD Display panel. But, this is not the only improvement.

The processor remains the same 1.4 GHz Cortex A7 based True Octa Core MT6592M chipset, with additional 2 GB RAM (vs 1 GB in Aqua Power) and 16 GB Internal Storage (Vs 8 GB in Aqua Power). The storage can be further expanded by another 32 GB using MicroSD card support.

Imaging hardware has also been improved and the Aqua Power HD comes with 13 MP rear camera and a 5 MP selfie camera at the front. For now, this dual SIM smartphone is running Android 4.4 KitKat, but Intex points out that this is upgradeable to Android 5.0 Lollipop in future.
