After Intex Aqua Ace, the domestic manufacturer has launched yet another handset with whopping 3GB RAM at a very economic price of 8,888 INR. This makes Intex Cloud Swift the cheapest Android smartphone with 3GB RAM in India, beating Coolpad Note 3 by a razor thin margin.
As the Swift moniker might suggest, RAM capacity isn’t directly proportional to speed, but lack of it can definitely cause an irritating lag. Intex however hasn’t mentioned type of RAM chip being used.
The 4G LTE enabled Dual SIM Cloud Swift is powered by 1.3GHz quad core MT6735A processor with 16GB native storage and 128GB MicroSD card support. There is a textured pattern on the rear case, while the front is mostly dominated by the 5 Inch HD display that is protected by Dragontrail glass.
On the rear side, there is an 8MP AF camera with LED flash, coupled with 5MP front selfies camera. A PIP mode in camera app lets you shoot from both front and rear camera at the same time. A 2500 mAh Li-Polymer battery is also present to power all hardware. Software is Android 5.1 Lollipop, and Intex has also added a set of preloaded apps and extensive gesture support which you might find useful.
Commenting on the launch, Mr. Sanjay Kumar Kalirona, Mobile Business Head, Intex Technologies said, “Online space is clearly the central destination for next generation of consumers. Intex has launched a category defying product, Cloud Swift exclusively online. We are happy to partner with one of India’s leading e-commerce portal – Snapdeal and are sure that this exclusive association will offer consumers an unmatchable experience at a never before price-point.”
