Intex launches the true octa-core powered Aqua Octa in India
Indian handset manufacturer Intex has launched its first true octa-core powered handset on Thursday. The Intex Aqua Octa is powered by the MediaTek MT6592, which is the world's first true octa-core chip that allows all 8 cores to be active at the same time. Besides having the 1.7GHz MT6592 under the hood, we should tell you that the phone is equipped with a 6 inch screen, putting it squarely in the phablet category. The screen offers a resolution of 720 x 1280.

On board the Aqua Octa, you will find 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of native storage which can be expanded by using the 32GB capacity microSD slot. The back and front-facing snappers weigh in at 13MP and 5MP respectively, and a 2300mAh battery keeps the lights on. Android 4.2.2 is pre-installed. The device offers 3G connectivity. We really see no chance of this model hitting the U.S. as the lack of support for LTE should keep it out of the states.

While the phone is offered by the manufacturer in both black and white, Indian retailer Snapdeal only has the black model. It is offering the phone for 19,999 INR ($321 USD) and is throwing in an Intex Power Bank 3000mAh and a Craggy headphone if the phone is ordered before January 8th. The freebies have a value of 3900 INR ($63 USD). The Power Bank is a small portable charger that should more than double the battery life of your Aqua Octa.

Micromax will soon have its MediaTek OctaCore Smartphone launched this month with 3000 mAh battery at the same pricetag.

Something tells me that this will have low chance of getting upgraded to Android KitKat.

One thing you may want to forget about local companies is the Android updates. Unless, it becomes a very big hit, they likely won't give an update. These people have been providing 4.2 with all their phones, even the ones with 256MB RAM. KitKat? I've not seen even phone get/come with 4.3 installed. I hope it changes!

Galaxy in Samsung doesn't mean its going to protect you from other galaxies trying to damage your phone! Its just a name. All their phones have them! :)

Everything is good about this phone, except Battery and HD screen, they should have atleast tried to include FullHd screen, and battery of minimum 3000MAH, then at this price it would have been a massive hit.........

When I saw the title, I thought it read 'Intel'
