Airtel's offer is made under their 'Mera Pehla Smartphone' campaign, for which they have now partnered with Intex, to offer 4G phone at an effective price of Rs 1649/-.

Customers can choose Airtel's Rs. 169 pack for 28 days, which offers unlimited calls and 0.5GB worth 4G data per day to be eligible for the cashbacks which will be credited to user's Airtel Payments Bank account.

"We are really pleased to see the continued positive response to our "mera pehla smartphone" initiative from customers as well as smartphone manufacturers", said Ajai Puri, Chief Operating Officer (India and South Asia), Bharti Airtel. Earlier, the operator had partnered with Karbonn Mobiles and Celkon to launch affordable 4G smartphones.

People will have to pay Rs 3,149 to purchase Intex Aqua Lions N1, and they'll get Rs 1,500 cashback over a period of three years, bringing down the price of the phone to Rs 1,649. The phone sports a 2-megapixel rear facing camera along with a VGA front selfie shooter.

Airtel has just announced their new offer for 4G phones, which further lowers the barrier, and makes 4G phones even more accessible and even more cheaper. It is driven by a 1.3GHz quad-core Cortex A7 processor coupled by 1GB of RAM, seated upon Spreadtrum SC9832A chipset.

A similar deal is applicable on Aqua S3 and Aqua A4, which are priced at Rs. 6,649 and Rs. 4,999, respectively.

Airtel is aggressively expanding its partnership with domestic handset manufacturers to launch smartphones under 'Mera Pehla Smartphone' initiative. To buy the Aqua Lions N1, customers need to make a down payment of Rs 3,149.

Coming to the costliest of the pack, the Intex Aqua S3 boasts of a bigger 5-inch HD display with 1280 x 720 pixel resolution.

In case the customer does not wish to opt for the Rs 169 plan, they can recharge as per their requirements. Running on Android 7.0 Nougat, the smartphone is powered by a slightly more powerful 1.3GHz MTK processor along with 1GB of RAM. Users can access all apps on Google Play Store, including YouTube, Facebook and WhatsApp on the devices. The phone can be availed for a down payment of Rs3,149, Bharti Airtel said. The smartphones come preloaded with MyAirtel App, Airtel TV and Wynk Music to offer a great self-serve and content experience to customers. However, to claim the cash refund benefit, recharges worth Rs 3000 must be done within the first 18 months (to claim the first refund instalment of Rs 500) and another Rs 3000 over the next 18 months (to claim the second refund instalment of Rs 1000).
