Airtel has partnered up with Intex to launch Aqua range of 4G VoLTE smart phones for as low as 1649 Rupees effectively. One might think that the storm once started by the JIO 4G phone might have settled but India’s largest telecom operator Airtel surely feels strongly about that. Airtel has launched another set of Aqua 4G VoLTE smartphone in partnership with Intex this time. IT had recently partnered with Karbonn and Celkon to offer affordable 4G VoLTE handsets. Like Karbonn and Celkon, Airtel has partnered with Intex to launch 4G VoLTE smart phones which end up being effectively for the same price as that of the JIO 4G phone.
