Intex Aqua i5 Octa launched for Rs 7,499 in India

Intex has just launched its cheapest ever octa-core processor device in the country with the moniker Aqua i5 Octa for Rs 7,499. The launch comes right after Xolo launched its two budget octa-core devices in the country earlier today for Rs 8,999 and Rs 9,999.

It comes with a set of specifications a notch below the Xolo offerings and is meant more as a Moto E, Canvas Unite 2 and Redmi 1S rival. Let us take a look at the specifications of the Intex Aqua i5 Octa.


  • 5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels
  • 1.4 GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6592M processor coupled with a Mali 450 GPU and a 1GB RAM
  • Android 4.4 KitKat is what it runs on and there’s no word for the time being regarding an update in future
  • 8GB of internal storage which can be expanded by another 32GB with the help of a microSD card slot
  • 13-Megapixel rear camera coupled with a LED flash and a 5-Megapixel front camera
  • 3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, Dual SIM and USB OTG for connectivity
  • Colours available: Black, Blue and White
  • 2000 mAh battery

The device will go on sale exclusively on Amazon and its specifications are closely matched up to those of the Xolo Omega 5 save for the display resolution. It comes across as a pretty value for money handset.

kind of Offtopic:

I want to know why these Manufacturer always using 1gb RAM why not use 2gb? Is adding 2gb RAM that Costly ?
Or is it , if they add 2gb ram on new models then old models wih 2GB ram wont sale?

i think it is the later one..
octacore this and that. where is the RAM to use such horse power? they are adding Horse power but forgetting to add the Workers(RAM in this case).
