Intex Mobiles has launched a new smartphone, the Aqua View, in the Nepali markets. Priced at Rs. 16,599, the Intex Aqua View comes bundled with free Eyelet VR Cardboard.
As far as the specs go, the Aqua View has a 5-inch HD display, a 1GHz quad-core cortex A53 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage with microSD support, and 2200mAh battery. The phone sports an 8MP rear camera with LED flash, and a 5MP front camera. It’s still running Android 5.1 and probably won’t get Marshmallow. In terms of connectivity, the phone has 2 SIM card with 4G LTE option, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n (no ac), Bluetooth 4.0, Micro-USB 2.0, GPS/ A-GPS, Fingerprint scanner, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
The highlight of the phone, however, is the VR-compatibility — thanks to the inclusion of gyroscope and accelerometer sensors (Take that Samsung J series users!). You get a free Eyelet VR cardboard, a Google-certified VR viewer while purchasing the phone. What’s even great about the cardboard is it supports other smartphones with screen size up to 6-inches; Xiaomi MiMax misses out in this one.
