Xolo Era 4G launches for Rs. 4777

Smartphone producers, Xolo, less than a day after launching the Era 4K smartphone, has introduced a new phone in the Era series dubbed the Era 4G.

The new smartphone has dual-SIM support and probably was named the Era 4G because it possesses 4G LTE features. This support is available on the two SIM card slots, meaning users can enjoy VoLTE services on both SIMs.

Xolo Era 4G will cost intending buyers Rs. 4,777 (that’s about 15,000 naira) and will be available exclusively via a flash sale at Snapdeal starting from February 26 2016. However registration for purchase of the phone is already.

At this price point, the Xolo Era 4G will be competing directly against the likes of the Intex Aqua Wing, priced at Rs. 4,599 (that’s approximately 15,000 Naira), and the 4G-enabled Swipe Elite 2, priced at Rs. 4,666 (close to 15,000 naira)

Xolo in a press statement revealed that the Era-range of smartphones saw over 150,000 units sold via Snapdeal. This could be adjudged to be the reason it preferred to offer the new phone through Snapdeal.

The Xolo Era 4G runs Android 5.1 Lollipop out-of-the-box  and the company guarantees that the handset will receive an Android 6.0 Marshmallow update in future.

It features a 5-inch IPS display with a HD (720×1280 pixels) screen resolution and a pixel density of roughly 294ppi. The screen is further protected by Corning Gorilla Glass.

The Xolo Era 4G is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core processor clubbed with 1GB of RAM. It packs 8GB of inbuilt storage, which can be expanded up to 32GB via a microSD card.

The handset sports a 5 megapixel rear camera with LED flash, and there’s also a 2 megapixel front-facing camera for taking pictures.

Connectivity options on the Xolo Era 4G include GPRS/ EDGE, 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with hotspot functionality, Bluetooth v4.0, FM radio, Micro-USB 2.0, USB-OTG and GPS/ A-GPS, apart from 4G. There’s also a 2500mAh battery backing it.
