Intex Aqua Selfie is the company’s latest smartphone in the popular Aqua lineup. As the name itself suggests, the smartphone’s highlight is the front-facing camera, which also has support for LED flashlight. The Aqua Selfie is priced at Rs. 6,649 in India and will be sold via both online and offline channels.
Diving into the specifications of the smartphone, it comes with a 5.5-inch HD display with a resolution of 720×1280 pixels. The screen protection remains unannounced by Intex. The device is fuelled with a Spreadtrum SC9832A SoC, along with a 1.3GHz CPU.
The chipset is accompanied with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The storage can be further expanded up to 64GB with a microSD card. The device uses the Mali-400 GPU for graphic intensive tasks.
Software wise, the Intex Aqua Selfie runs on Android Nougat and comes preloaded with applications such as Xender, QR Code Scanner, Prime Video, etc. The device will be available in Black and Rose Gold colour options. The Aqua Selfie does not feature a fingerprint scanner.
The Aqua Selfie comes with an 8MP rear camera with a LED flashlight support. There’s a 5MP front-facing camera, which also comes with LED flash support. A smartphone with front-facing flash support is a rarity in the sub Rs. 7,000 price bracket. Surely, the Aqua Selfie will impress the customers.
A 3000mAh battery backs the entire package, and the company made a mentioning about the fast charge support at the launch. Connectivity options include 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS, FM Radio, and micro USB port.
For the asking price of Rs. 6,649, the Intex Aqua Selfie goes against the likes of Xiaomi Redmi 4 and InFocus Turbo 5. However, the Redmi 4 turns out to be a much better option in the same price bracket because it has a faster processor, better design, fingerprint scanner, and a beefy 4100mAh battery. On the other hand, the InFocus Turbo 5 comes with a massive 5000mAh battery.
