It seems like the introduction of the Jio Phone has made the budget segment - specifically the 4G VoLTE feature segment - more competitive in India. Intex Technologies on Tuesday launched its first feature phone with 4G VoLTE support - Intex Turbo+ 4G - as part of its Navratna series in the country. Apart from this particular model, the company also launched eight other feature phone models from different series, the prices for which range between Rs. 700 and Rs. 1500.
First talking about the specifications on the Intex Turbo+ 4G, the new feature phone runs on KaiOS software and sports with a 2.4-inch QVGA display. It is powered by a dual-core processor coupled with 512MB of RAM. In terms of optics, the Intex Turbo+ 4G comes with a 2-megapixel primary rear camera and a VGA camera at front for taking selfies.
The Intex Turbo+ 4G houses a 2000mAh battery and comes with 4GB built-in storage, which is expandable up to 32GB.
Ishita Bansal, Product Head - Mobiles, Intex Technologies, commented on the launch of the Navratna series by saying, "Commemorating our 71st Independence Day, we wanted to upgrade feature phone users and give them the taste of a smartphone through our first Smart Feature Phone - the Turbo+ 4G.
