The second largest Indian smartphone manufacturer, Intex has launched the Aqua Secure smartphone. It is the most affordable device to offer fingerprint sensor at a priced of Rs. 6,499. The Coolpad Note 3 Lite is the previous best which costs slightly on a higher side at Rs. 6,999. Apart from the fingerprint sensor, the Aqua Secure comes with very basic specifications and making the Coolpad Note 3 Lite a better choice.
Speaking about the newly launched Aqua Secure, Sanjay Kumar Kalirona, Mobile Business Head, Intex Technologies, said,
“4G connectivity, big screens, high definition displays and powerful RAMs are the current trends. Intex brings this 4G enabled device with advanced security feature like finger print sensor and VOLTE.
