India’s homegrown smartphone brand Intex has launched another smartphone which will go by the name of Intex Aqua 5.5 VR+. The phone carries a price tag of Rs 5,799 making it the cheapest VR enabled handset available on the market. It comes as the latest addition to the company’s Aqua-series smartphones. A couple of days ago, the company had launched another budget smartphone – the Intex Aqua Note 5.5 that was also priced for the same amount.
In terms of design, the phone sports a sturdy build. It features a primary camera unit with LED flash on the back which shares real estate with the main speaker grill located on the lower back. On the front, it features a 5.5-inch which is also suggested by the name of the device. Also on the top front is where the front-facing camera is located whereas on the bottom chin, is where three capacitive touch buttons are located.
The display of the Aqua 5.5 VR+ is a 5.5-inch HD IPS display. This display size is perfect for most VR headsets and should do justice to the VR content. However, in comparison to its counterparts in the same price range, the mere HD resolution of the device’s display is not at par.
Under the hood, the offering from Intex features a Quad-core MediaTek processor clocking at 1.25GHz. This processor is backed up with 2GB RAM to help with multitasking. In terms of storage, the device is equipped with a 16GB Internal storage ROM, which can be expanded up to 64GB through a microSD card.
Camera & Battery
In the camera department, the phone is equipped with two cameras – a primary one on the back and a selfie shooter on the front. The primary camera features an 8-megapixel sensor that is coupled with LED flash. Up front, the selfie camera sports a 5-megapixel sensor which is also coupled with front facing flash to enable the user to capture selfies in darker environments. To keep the device up and running, Intex has equipped the smartphone with a 2,800mAh battery unit that should get you through the day with moderate usage but with intensive use could require you to go charger hunting during the day.
