Airtel, Intex partner for 4G phone at an effective price

Intex Aqua

Airtel said the Intex Aqua LIONS N1 handset (market price of ₹ 3,799) has a 4-inch screen, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage (expandable up to 128GB) and 2MP rear and VGA front camera.

The race to deliver low-priced, affordable 4G phones has literally converted into the race to the bottom.

Airtel on Tuesday announced a partnership with Intex to bundle data and calling benefits with select smartphones. "We look forward to working with them towards empowering every Indian with a 4G smartphone", Ajai Puri, Chief Operating Officer (India and South Asia), Bharti Airtel said.

Alongside the Aqua Lions N1, Airtel also added two more smartphones- Aqua A4 and Aqua S3.

To get it right off the bat, there's no way we can actually compare a feature phone and a smartphone. The phones will be available via major brick-and-mortar stores across the country. Coming to the camera department, the JioPhone comes with both front and back camera. Sensors on the phone include Proximity sensor, Accelerometer and Ambient light sensor. The 1400 mAh battery provides the essential juice to the device.

As for the specs of these new phones, here's everything the Intex phones have to offer. Other important features of the smartphone include 4G, VoLTE, dual-SIM, and 1,750 mAh battery. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Intex Aqua Lions N1 packs a 2-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 0.3-megapixel front shooter for selfies.

Intex Aqua A4 also has a 4-inch WVGA screen. Airtel is selling these three phones at effective prices starting at Rs 1649. Airtel is selling the phone at an effective price of Rs 1,999. Customers need to make a down payment of Rs. 3,149 for the new 4G smartphone.

After making 36 continuous monthly recharges of Rs169 from Airtel, a customer will be eligible for a cash refund of Rs500 after 18 months and another Rs1,000 at the end of 36 months.

If the customers do not want to recharge with Rs. 169 plan, they have the flexibility of doing recharges of any denomination. However, to claim the cash refund benefit, recharges worth Rs 3,000 must be done within the first 18 months (to claim the first refund installment of Rs 500) and another Rs 3,000 over the next 18 months (to claim the second refund installment of Rs 1,000).

The customer would not be required to return the device to either party to claim the cash benefit, the company said. It is noteworthy that JioPhone comes at an effective price of Rs 0. Airtel is offering the phone at an effective price of Rs 1,649.

That's about the Airtel, Intex Aqua Lions N1 4G smartphone. The Aqua S3 requires you to pay Rs 5879.

In addition to the Intex Aqua LIONS N1, two more 4G smartphones have been introduced under the offer- Intex Aqua A4 and the Intex Aqua S3 which were launched earlier this year.
