Intex unveiled its all-new Cloud Swift smartphone on Friday for Rs. 8,888. The handset will be available exclusively on Snapdeal starting next Tuesday.
"Online space is clearly the central destination for next generation of consumers. Intex has launched a category defying product, Cloud Swift exclusively online. We are happy to partner with one of India's leading e-commerce portal - Snapdeal and are sure that this exclusive association will offer consumers an unmatchable experience at a never before price-point," Sanjay Kumar Kalirona, Mobile Business Head of Intex, said in a statement, NDTV reports.
The Intex Cloud Swift grabbed our attention with its impressive under the hood specs. The handset is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6735A chipset, paired with 3GB RAM, which appears to be the main USP for the device. With spacious RAM onboard, the handset is likely to perform better than most phones in its price range.
In terms of design, the Intex Cloud Swift has adopted the latest trend and features a textured back with rear facing speaker and the camera located on the top right. The Intex Cloud Swift sports a 5-inch HD IPS display with 320ppi and packs an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5MP front snapper. The handset boasts of 16GB onboard storage, which can be expanded up to 128GB using microSD cards. The Intex Cloud Swift is powered by a 2,500mAh battery, expected to last 7 hours on talk time, and runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop.
Like most sub-Rs 10,000 phones in the market, the Intex Cloud Swift supports high-speed 4G LTE along with 3G and packs usual sensors including accelerometer, ambient light sensor and a proximity sensor.
Keeping in mind Indian customers, Intex has pre-loaded some useful apps, such as Chaatz, Gaana, Hotstar, Skype, Follo, OneDrive, Newshunt, Clean Master, InMobi Services, OLX, Opera Mini, and Matrabhasha. While some might see this as bloatware, most apps are used quite often by mobile users.
