The telecom operator very recently partnered with another homegrown smartphone maker - Karbonn to launch A1 Indian and the A41 Power for Rs 1,799 and Rs 1,849 - "effectively at the price of a feature phone". Whereas customers buying the Intex Aqua A4 and Aqua S3 will have to make a down payment of Rs3,499 and Rs 5,879 respectively.

Intex's three devices will be sold to Airtel customers for a cashdown payment, on which the No 1 phone company will give cashbacks over three years on condition that those opting for these 4G devices would need to recharge their phones with a minimum pack every month over next three years. It will bring the effective price of the Aqua Lions N1 to Rs 1,649, the Aqua A4's price to Rs 1,999 and Aqua S3's price to Rs 4,379.

After 18 months, the users will get a cash refund of Rs. 500 and another Rs. 1,000 will be refunded after the completion of 36 months, taking the total benefit to Rs. 1,500.

To become eligible for cashback, users will have to recharge with Airtel's Rs 169 monthly pack, consecutively for 36 months. However, to claim the cash refund benefit, recharges worth Rs 3,000 must be done within the first 18 months (to claim the first refund installment of Rs 500) and another Rs 3,000 over the next 18 months (to claim the second refund installment of Rs 1,000).
