Intex Aqua Qwerty touch and type Android smartphone introduced in India for Rs 4,990

The Intex Aqua Qwerty smartphone featuring a physical keypad as well as touch controls, has been launched in India for a rather affordable price of under Rs 5,000. It comes across as a good affordable option for heavy texters and people who are not comfortable with touchscreens. The company is mainly targeting it at middle-aged professionals and women.

Coming to the specifications of the Intex Aqua Qwerty, the device employs a 3.5-inch HVGA touchscreen, a well-spaced keypad and a 1.3MP webcam for obvious reasons. And on flipping the device over, you will find a 5MP camera with flash which should be able to capture good quality images and videos. The handset is based on the Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 OS, but may not receive a software update.

The internal working of the smartphone is carried out under the supervision of a dual core processor which can clock in a maximum speed of 1.2GHz. You can expect 512MB of RAM for smooth navigation and multitasking purposes and 4GB of onboard space for hoarding digital content. An expansion slot for increasing the latter further by up to 32GB is also present on the phone. It should cough up the juice for talk time of close to 5 hours, thanks to a 1500mAh battery.
