Intex is keeping up with the trend that was kicked off with the formation of the low-range market segment. And like others in that race, the company has today officially launched the new Aqua i5 Mini smartphone at a competitive price of Rs 6,850.
Needless to say, with the new Intex release, the company will be looking to pit the device against an array of recently launched Sub-10K smartphones in the Indian smartphone market, which also includes both the popular Moto G and Moto E.
However, Intex today announced the launch of Aqua i5 Mini, a brand new offering from Intex Aqua series of smartphones. "Aqua i5 Mini enters the market at a time when there is an unprecedented enthusiasm amongst the users for low -cost and advanced UI smartphones," the official press release states.
Commenting on the launch; Sanjay Kumar Kalirona, Business Head- Mobiles, said "We at Intex always aim to offer products which cater to the aspirations of users across various platforms. Intex Aqua i5 Mini is one such product which is affordably priced without compromising on its quality, looks and performance giving buyers a delightful smartphone experience."
