As expected the Intex Aqua Octa Core handset is indeed price at under Rs. 20,000, well almost. It is powered by 1.7GHz MT6592 Octa Core chipset running Android 4.2 over a 6 inch screen with HD resolution.

The Aqua Octa handset had already made headlines in November 2013 and we were expecting it to be made available in Jan 2014. The handset houses the MT6592 chipset coupled with Mali 450 GPU (700 MHz). The screen is 6 inches with resolution 1280×720 pixels with 262K colors.

Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 runs on this handset with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage. In addition 32GB micro SD card is also supported. There is 13MP rear auto focus camera (with flash) and 5MP front camera. It is a dual SIM handset that supports 3G, 2G, Wi-Fi, GPS with A-GPS and Bluetooth. There are accelerometer, proximity and light sensors.

Handset is 7mm thick with a weight of around 180 grams. A 2300 mAh Li-Po battery should give a decent usage time on a single charge.
