At $44, the Intex Aqua T2 seems to be the world's cheapest Android KitKat smartphone
Although there are lots of cheap Android handsets out there, most of them run older versions of Google’s mobile OS. What’s more, very few cost less than $50 unlocked. So we were surprised to find out about the Intex Aqua T2, a brand new Android KitKat smartphone that costs just $44.

Introduced this week in India, the Aqua T2 will be available to buy for 2,699 INR - which means about $44, as we already mentioned. As far as we know, this is the cheapest Android KitKat handset ever. For example, it’s much cheaper than the recently announced Android One smartphones that are being released in India for around $100 each.

Naturally, the Intex Aqua T2 is a very low-end device. It sports a 3.5-inch display with 320 x 480 pixels, and doesn’t have 3G connectivity. Other features include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, a 2 MP rear camera with LED flash, VGA front-facing camera, dual-core 1.3 GHz MediaTek processor, 256 MB of RAM, 512 MB of internal memory, microSD card support, and a 1200 mAh battery. 

The new handset has dual SIM capabilities, and will be exclusively available via Flipkart (one of India’s largest online retailers), coming in either black, or blue. In case you're wondering, the Intex Aqua T2 will most probably not be released in other parts of the world.

if you use this, don't install any app. ram is only 256MB, phone will crawl.
There are may China-made unbranded phones that are sold way cheaper than this at almost the same hardware config.

With only 256GB of RAM, this phone will crawl regardless of whether or not you install apps.

In 2011 they NEVER had $44 smart phones. You do know you are trying to cut up a KitKat smart phone that's priced at $44. Also KitKat only came out at the end of last year.

Glad to see a new enthusiast flagship maker on the market. Price is a bit to high bit that's what you have to expect for such huge performance.

intex is the worst phone to buy. I have 101 reasons why not to buy an intex phone. From day first the phone contact automatically gets deleted. Though I hv been importing, adding, contacts to diff places like phone, sim, etc. absolutely no import feature. Battery back is worst. The phone is hardly 3 months and battery gets dead by 3 hours on using wifi. Hanging during call recieve, auto call end, and removal etc is almost a reward from the company. Above all where ever you go, may u stand under your personal network tower...you wont be able to listen you the callers sound neither the other end person will be blessed of your voice.If i am I wont consider it a phone. It a complete fraud with the customers who relied upon the company for legacy in computers hardware.
