Intex Technologies announced Aqua Fish smartphone during MWC 2016. Intex promised to start selling the device during April-May, which never happened. Now the smartphone is mysteriously available for purchase via different eBay sellers. Customers can buy the smartphone for ₹5499 which is pretty attractive since the MRP is marked at ₹8999. The smartphone is unique because of the fact thatt it runs SailFish OS. SailFish OS provides a different and rich user experience which stands out from rest of the devices.
The Jolla & Intex Confusion
Intex never bothered publishing a press release informing the SailFish enthusiasts about the launch and availability of the device. Thankfully that did not stop some of the retailers from going ahead and start selling the smartphone. This caused a bit of confusion between Jolla – the maker of Sailfish OS and Intex. The former claimed that the devices being sold are stolen, but Intex claimed they are official. This issue also highlights how lack of communication between two partners can be dangerous.
Purchase Intex Aqua Fish in India
Anyways, the Sailfish powered Intex Aqua Fish smartphone can now be purchased from eBay as well as Amazon. Various sellers are promising to deliver a factory sealed box imported by Intex Technologies along with 12-months of warranty. There is enough evidence that over 13000 units of Aqua Fish have been imported to India. Some necessary amount of spares (flex, keys, camera module, jacks; etc) are also included.
You can also make use of the coupon code INTEX07OFF to get flat 7% off on any Intex mobile at eBay (including the Aqua Fish).
If you do not want to buy from eBay, the smartphone can also be purchased from Amazon India for a price of ₹5499.
