Physical QWERTY Android smartphones are hard to find these days. In the last three and half years, smartphones have been through constant reinventions.
Therefore, today no one would like to use a handset with physical key-board, even if it sports a touch screen. However, India-based Intex wants to revive the trend of touch and type Android smartphones. The firm earlier this week teased its first ever physical keyboard ducked Android handset on their official Facebook page.
Intex Touch and Type Smartphone: What to Expect?
Recently, the company has shared more details about the device through a teaser image. The teaser image suggests that Intex's first ever QWERTY Android smartphone will indeed feature a 3.5-inch display. In case the rumors haven't been enough, Intex is on the verge to announce the device anytime soon.
Intex Touch and Type Smartphone- Spec Sheet
The previous day, domestic handset manufacturer Intex, also hinted at possible specs of their upcoming Touch n Type smartphone. Reportedly, the smartphone would come with a 3.5-inch display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor and run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Yes indeed, the handset will support dual-SIM.
That broad hint could be enough to tempt you consider the phone at least once. Doesn't it? But don't get swayed until unless the company officially reveals the handset with confirmed specs and official price.
Intex Touch and Type Smartphone: Will You Buy it?
Full touch screen phones may have conquered the market, but it is hard to ignore a phone with a physical keyboard. If BlackBerry can sell handsets with a physical keyboard, what stops other smartphone makers to follow the same approach?
Now, it seems that Intex has found a way to win over consumers' as not a single mainstream manufacturer is ready to sell touch and type handsets any more. At the same time we need to clarify that Nokia is selling touch n type phones (Nokia Asha 210 and Asha 205) running Symbian OS in India that too at an affordable price. But in terms of competition, Nokia-made Asha 210 and the Asha 205 are not fit to face prime time.
