Intex is a strong player in the budget segment of India’s ever expanding Android market, they manage this by keeping a steady tempo of releases throughout the year. The latest in this trend is the Aqua Strong 5.1+ featuring 4G VoLTE support, priced at ₹5,490/-, it will be available in Gold and Black colour schemes through all major offline retail channels throughout India.
The device succeeds the Intex Strong 5.1 which was launched last year, with the major difference between the devices being that the Strong 5.1+ supports 4G VoLTE unlike its predecessor which is limited to LTE. The Strong 5.1+ is a dual-SIM device keeping in line with the majority of budget Android devices, a 5-inch CWCGA (480×854 pixels) display, sporting a quad-core processor coupled with a GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage.
The device supports expandable storage (up to 64 GB) at the cost of one of the SIM slots. Photography is taken care of by a 5-megapixel rear shooter and 2-megapixel fixed-focus selfie camera. All this chugs along on a 2000mAh battery. The Aqua Strong 5.1+ comes with a smart tracking feature that enables you to find the device if it is ever lost or misplaced. This is in addition to various Value Added Services like miFon security, game Play, Vdioplay and QR Code.
The Intex Aqua Strong 5.1+ might not be the fastest or the most powerful device at its price point but it does have the requisite feature set within a budget that will appeal to first time budget buyers / people on the lookout for cheap 4G VoLTE supporting handsets.
