Intex Aqua Octa vs iBerry Auxus Nuclea N2 - Grudge Match

Updated on January 17, 2014

If you thought octa core phones were a thing of the future, think again. There’s gonna be a lot of octa core phones that are going to come up in 2014. People have had little taste of these monsters and they only know about the Samsung Galaxy S4. It was the first smartphone to be featured with an octa core processor and it did amazingly well in sales. The only disappointing factor of this phone was that it wasn’t affordable for the masses. Only the elite club could use the octa core phones. So, the Indian manufacturers decided to step it up and bring in affordable smartphones that had an octa core processor. Below, is sneak peek of some of the smartphones, coming up in 2014, that has an 8 core processor under its hood.

Intex Aqua Octa

The year kicked off with the release of Intex Aqua Octa. The USP of the phone is embedded onto its name and that is the octa core processor. This octa core phone has 8 cores, which are all clocked at 1.7 GHz. The chipset is manufactured by MediaTek. Added to that, there is 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage. If you thought you could expand your storage up to 64 GB, you thought wrong. There is no option for expanding the storage. You will have to make do with the 16 GB of which a little is scraped up for system files. The display of the phone is just brilliant with an “almost” full HD OGS (One Glass Solution) 6-inch display with a resolution of 780x1920 pixels. It runs on the Jellybean 4.2 version and the whole of India is hoping for a KitKat update, which is probably on the cards for Intex. The camera is a 13 megapixel autofocus camera and at the front there is a 5 megapixel camera. To power this thing up Intex have put in a 2300mAh battery, which I personally think is just sufficient. They should’ve gone for a 2500mAh battery just to be on the safer side. Just think about it, 2300mAh to run 8 cores, 2GB RAM, 6-inch OGS HD display and a 13 megapixel camera. I don’t know? The second USP of this octa core phone is, of course, the price. This phone is available at a price tag of Rs.19,999 (around 325$).

The next phone on the list is from a less known manufacturer and that is iBerry. They are relatively new in the Indian market , so it will take time for them to get customers. They too are targeting the budget smartphones and tablets category. Their octa core phone is named iBerry Auxus Nuclea N2. I know it is a pretty big name for a smartphone, but I’m not complaining, because it is packed with some serious stuff. First of all it has the MediaTek octa core processor clocked at 1.7 GHz. Yes, this is the same one in the Intex Aqua Octa. Nuclea N2 also has 2 GB of RAM and a 16 GB internal storage. And guess what? You also have the option of expanding it up to 64 GB via microSD. The 13 megapixel back camera has a BSI sensor and an auto focus sensor. The next big thing is that, iBerry has announced a KitKat update for the phone before the first quarter of 2014 and it will be an OTA update. The display size is 5.7 inch and it is a full HD OGS display. The only problem that I found was that the battery was a little lower than the Intex Aqua Octa at 2200 mAh. I don't think that is enough for sustaining this phone for a day. The Nuclea N2 is available for the same price as the Intex Aqua Octa which is Rs.19,999 (around 325$).

Karbonn’s Untitled Octa Core phone and others

The last one on the list will surely blow your socks off. I don’t have many details about the phone, but I just have one thing with me. The octa core phone from Karbonn will have a processor which can go up to speeds of 3.7 GHz. Yes, you heard that right. 3.7GHz!!! That’s a phone which is going to be lightning fast. Guess we’ll have to wait for more details on this one.

Some other phones coming with an octa core processor:

Micromax Canvas 5
Huawei Honor 4

This is my first article on Hubpages after a gap of almost a year. If you have any suggestions or details that I can add on to this one, put it up in the comments and I will humbly take it down. Stay tuned for more updates on the tech world, with me, cause I am a back.
