Intex Mobiles has launched a new handset called Aqua Curve in its Aqua series of devices. The Aqua Curve comes with a curved display according to Intex, we don’t know exactly what Intex means when it says a curved OGS display on the new smartphone. Don’t expect something like LG G Flex or Galaxy Round.
Intex Curve features a 5-inch OGS curve display with qHD resolution (960 x 540 pixels), that means pixel density of 220ppi. It is powered by a unspecified 1.3Ghz quad-core processor.
