Airtel, Intex tie up to launch cheaper 4G smartphones

Expanding its lineup of "Mera Pehla Smartphone", leading telecom operator Airtel has launched a new 4G smartphone - Aqua Lions N1 - in partnership with domestic smartphone maker Intex.

All three phones come bundled with a monthly pack of Rs 169 from Airtel. In addition to Karbonn and Celkon, Airtel has now tied up with Intex to offer affordable 4G smartphones with attractive bundles to lower the cost of the device.

Intex Aqua LIONS N1 comes with a 4-inch WVGA screen.

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.

In case the customer does not wish to opt for the Rs 169 bundled plan, she/he has the flexibility of doing recharges of any denomination and validity as per individual requirements.

The customer would not be required to return the device to either party to claim the cash benefit, the company said. Airtel is selling these three phones at effective prices starting at Rs 1649. If a customer fails to recharge continuously or won't be able to make recharges worth Rs 3,000 in the first 18 months, they won't receive the cashback. Intex has launched the new Aqua LIONS N1 smartphone and apart from that, Airtel's cashback is applicable on two existing Intex smartphones.

"Intex Aqua LIONS N1is powered by MTK chipset with a 4" full touch WVGA screen, 2MP Rear & Front VGA camera, 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage which is expandable up to 128GB along with a host of other exciting features. It however gets different internals as it is powered by a Spreadtrum quad-core CPU clocked at 1.3 GHz coupled with 512 MHz Mali MP2 GPU.

The statement said under the initiative, Airtel aimed to partner with multiple mobile handset manufacturers to create an "open ecosystem" of affordable 4G smartphones and bring them to market for virtually the price of a feature phone.

The Intex Aqua A4 comes at an effective price of Rs 1999 (compared to market price of Rs 4999).

The Intex Aqua S3 features a 5.0-inch display, powered by same 1.3 GHz processor with 2 GB RAM and 16 GB onboard flash storage with a dedicated micro SD card slot.

Likewise the Aqua Lions N1 and Aqua A4, Rs 1500 will be refunded back to the customer - in the similar manner. The smartphone comes with 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage which can be expanded up to 64GB via a microSD card.
