On the front, there is a 2MP camera with front LED flash for selfies and video calls. Intex has included Smile Detection, Face Beauty, Panorama Mode and Voice Capture in the Aqua Strong 5.2.
The phone will be running Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. Aqua Strong 5.2 is priced at INR 6,390 and allows the company to put its presence in the 4G entry level market. The phone is dual-SIM enabled and since the phone is 4G and VoLTE enabled it can be used on recently launched Reliance JIO network.
