Intex has announced the release of a smartphone which is said to runs on the MediaTek MT6592 chipset with 8 CPU cores (octal-cores) capable of performing processing activities simultaneously. This means that the 8 CPUs will be processing in parallel mode. This makes the phone one of the best in the market (Termed as a beast). This smartphone (which is yet to be named) will be a flagship of smartphones in the aqua series and will come in two variants- 16GB (which is priced Rs. 20,000) and 32GB (which is priced Rs. 25,000).
The device have the following features and facilities:
- 2GB RAM
- 16-inch display with 1280×720 pixels resolution
- 1.7GHz clock speed
- 13 MP rear camera and 5MP video-calling camera(front)
- 2600mAh battery power
- Runs Android 4.4 Jerry Beans straight out of the box
- 7mm in thickness
- Duo-Yamaha speakers with 1.2W power rating.
- Capable of playing 2K as well as 4K videos due to octa-core chipset
The smartphone prototype which was used during the launch had some problems in that it was buggy and had bugs. These problems will be ironed out by the time it reaches the market come January 2014. The octal-core device has a replaceable battery which is an advantage to its users.
The device, 6-inch display, makes it large and will therefore compete with Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 and the Huawei Ascend Mate. The 720p resolution gives the device a pixel density of 244 PPI which is meant to control the cost of the device. Using HD full display would make the device the most expensive in the market; hence not many can afford to buy it.
The device specifications make it the most promising in the market. This makes the device one of the most awaited releases. Everybody would like to lay his hands on this smartphone and to utilize its true potential.
