Airtel and Intex introduce affordable 4G smartphones starting at Rs. 1649


The line-up includes Aqua Lions N1, Aqua A4, and Aqua S3 at an effective price of Rs 1649, Rs 1999, and Rs 4379 respectively.

The ownership of the 4G smartphones is fully with the customer and there is no need to return the device to Airtel/Intex at any point to claim the cash benefit. By announcing the range of 4G smartphones - Airtel is leaving no stone unturned to take on Jio. We are delighted to launch the all new Aqua LIONS N1 exclusively under the "Mera Pehla Smartphone" initiative to drive the adoption of 4G smartphones.

The Intex Aqua Lions N1 runs Android 7.0 and is powered by a 1400mAh removable battery. For networking and sharing, the Intex Aqua A4 supports options such as dual SIM, 4G, 3G, 2G, VoLTE, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and USB port. JioPhone is actually a smart feature phone which lets you watch YouTube videos and also browse, unlike most of the other feature phones available in the market.

Intex Aqua N1 comes with a full touch 4-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen of 800x480p display resolution. The phone packs 8GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card. Sensors on the phone include Proximity sensor, Accelerometer and Ambient light sensor. The Intex Aqua A4 is fuelled by a 1,750mAh li-ion battery which claims to render 6 hours of talk time duration and 250 hours of standby mode.

After that, Artel will give a cashback of Rs. 1,500, which makes the effective price of the phone Rs. 1,649. The new smartphones are available at an effective price tag of as low as Rs 1,649. Airtel offers Rs 1500 cashback to its prepaid customers who purchase these handsets. This translates to an effective price of Rs1,649. In order to avail the cashback offer, a customer is required to make 36 continuous monthly recharges of Rs 169 from Airtel.

Then comes the offer: After 18 months, the user will get Rs 500/- cashback, followed by a cashback of Rs 1000/- after 36 months. However, the customer has to a recharge worth a minimum of Rs 3,000 for the first 18 months to claim the first refund instalment of Rs 500 and another Rs 3,000 over the next 18 months to claim the Rs 1,000 refund amount.

If the customer does not wish to opt for the bundled plan, and still wants the refund, recharges worth Rs 3,000 must be done within the first 18 months and another Rs3,000 over the next 18 months.
