Intex Elyt-e1 with fingerprint scanner launched in India at Rs 6,999

Intex today unveiled yet another affordable phone dubbed Intex Elyt-e1. Intex has come up with half a dozen affordable 4G phones in the last couple of months or so. This time, however, the company introduced a phone that doesn’t belong to any existing lineup and sounds weird. (Yea, I don’t know how to pronounce it.)

Design-wise, the Intex Elyt-e1 measures 142.4 mm in height, 71.55 mm in width, and 8.7 mm in thickness, and weighs 145 gm. The device flaunts a brushed, removable back, letting users access the phone’s internals. Available in only Champagne colour, the phone sports a 5-inch HD IPS On-Cell display with 1280 x 720 pixels resolution and 294 PPI pixel density.

The Dual-SIM (Micro + Micro) Intex Elyt-e1 runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system. Interestingly, both the SIM cards support 4G connectivity. Inside is Cortex A53-based Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz and Adreno 306 GPU for graphics. It embraces 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage, expandable up to 128GB via microSD.

On the camera front, the Intex Elyt-e1 houses an 8-megapixel rear autofocus camera with dual-LED flash and 8-megapixel selfie camera with front flash. Below the primary camera is a fingerprint scanner for security. It packs a 2,200mAh battery under the hood that is claimed to offer up to 220 hours standby time and 5.5 hours talk time.

Regarding connectivity, the Intex Elyt-e1 supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, FM radio, USB, and 3.5mm audio jack. The device costs Rs 6,999 and will go on sale very soon.
