Now, Airtel has partnered with Intex to offer a cashback of Rs. 1,500 on Intex smartphones. The smartphones come preloaded with MyAirtel App, Airtel TV and Wynk Music to offer a great self-serve and content experience to customers.

"We are really pleased to see the continued positive response to our "Mera Pehla Smartphone" initiative from customers as well as smartphone manufacturers".

All devices are Android powered and offer access to all apps on Google Play Store, including YouTube, Facebook and WhatsApp.

Bharti Airtel is working with Intex to launch a new entry-level 4G enabled smartphones against the 1500 JioPhone.
