According to a recent Quarterly Mobile Tracker published by International Data Corporation (IDC), Intex was the third top smartphone brand in India in terms of shipments. IDC claimed that Intex remained strong in the sub-$100 (approximately Rs. 6,500) price segment, which contributed to at least four-fifths of the company's overall volume. Recent launches including the Intex Aqua 4G+ also helped the company to gain a small initial volume.
