Intex Aqua Y2 Remote smartphone packs an IR blaster for controlling appliances

Intex Mobile has come up with quite a nifty little smartphone called the Aqua Y2 Remote. And while the device won’t be turning any heads with its mediocre design and hardware, it does have one feature that should be of much help, especially if you’ve got a lot of electronic appliances that rely on remove controls for operations.

The Intex Aqua Y2 Remote, as its name indicates, can act as a universal remote control and this is made possible owing to the IR blaster it has onboard. This means that you’ll be able to conveniently take control of TVs, Set Top Boxes, ACs, DVD Players and a lot more with this little smartphone. The ZaZa Remote app comes preloaded to enable this capability.

The Intex handset is a basic offering running Android 4.4.2 KitKat. It features a 4-inch IPS display of WVGA 480 x 800 pixel resolution on the front. There are dual cameras as well, a 2MP secondary shooter and a 5MP rear snapper which surprisingly is accompanied by a dual LED flash. You’ll, however, have to deal with a 1.2GHz dual core MediaTek processor based on the Cortex A7.
