China-made phones in India could face huge competition from Intex’s new Cloud Scan FP that comes with fingerprint sensor
China-made phones under huge threat in India due to emergence of local brandsreuters

With the latest addition of Intex's Rs. 4000 smartphone in the Indian smartphone scheme of things, Chinese phones in India could feel the heat more intensely than before. It is worth noting that a social media campaign titled #BanChineseProducts has been going viral. This aims at discouraging Indians from buying or using China-made products, especially phones.

Now, Intex's Cloud Scan FP offers buyers a fingerprint scanner and the phone's pricing is an ultra-affordable Rs. 4000. This price point makes the Cloud FP fall in line with some of the most affordable smartphones that offer the functionality.

As far as key technical specs of Intex Cloud FP are concerned, the phone offers the below important aspects:

  • 5-inch display having resolution of 854 x 480 with pixel density of 196 ppi
  • Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) operating system
  • 1.2 GHz quad-core SoC
  • 5 MP rear camera
  • 5 MP front snapper
  • Dual SIM-card slots
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB internal storage
  • MicroSD card slot for expansion of internal storage up to 32GB
  • 2450 mAh battery

On paper, these technical aspects do not seem to be world-beating in any sense. However, what is interesting is the fact that these tech specs are generally preferred by budget-conscious buyers. These specifications are generally offered by China-made smartphones and have received popularity and preference among Indian smartphone buyers. Therefore, Intex Cloud Scan FP stays relevant.

As far as its availability is concerned, the handset is currently up for purchase. The smartphone is available exclusively on Snapdeal.
