Intex last week unveiled the new Aqua View smartphone with the company’s first virtual reality (VR) cardboard, the Eyelet. Priced at Rs. 8,999, the highlight of the Intex Aqua View was its VR headset which the company touted was a Google-certified VR viewer. The smartphone went on sale via offline retailers in the country. The Eyelet cardboard could support smartphones with a screen size up to 6-inches. The smartphone also sport a fingerprint sensor on the home button.
The Intex Aqua View comes with an inbuilt cardboard app and the domestic handset maker notes that the Eyelet is based on the second version of the Google cardboard and will work with any smartphone which supports gyroscope and accelerometer sensors.
