Intex Aqua 4.5E, Aqua Q1 budget smartphones outed for less than Rs 5000

Two new and utlra-affordable Android KitKat smartphones known as the Intex Aqua 4.5E and Aqua Q1 are making their way into the Indian market. Both devices have shown up on the company’s official website and are likely to hit stores in the coming days without any official launch.

The Intex Aqua 4.5E and Aqua Q1 smartphones offer distinct designs, but are more or less the same with the exception of a few hardware components. The phones each pack a 4.5-inch FWVGA display which is pretty good for what you’ll be paying.
