Lava International’s 3-year-old smart devices branch, Xolo, is moving up the ladder of renown smartphone producers in the world.
The Indian company has launched the Xolo One HD smartphone, an entry level phone sporting impressive display features not common to devices of its kind and in its price range.
The Xolo One HD smartphone features a 5 inch HD (720×1280 pixels) IPS display, which is easily seen to be its major highlight. It is also super slim, measuring 143 × 72.6 × 9.5 mm and weighing a little bit over 120g.
The handset is powered by a 1.3GHz Mediatek quad-core processor and Mali 400MP2 graphics card clubed with 1GB of RAM. These offer moderate experience and the phone won’t lag if one doesn’t try to execute too many memory demanding applications at the same time.
The Xolo One HD packs an internal memory of 8GB which users can use for storing applications and several media files. However if this isn’t enough users can expand the memory space via a microSD card up to 32GB.
The smartphone sports an 8-megapixel rear camera with 1.4-micron pixel size and LED flash. A 5 megapixel front-facing camera is on board with LED flash as well, offering clear selfie pictures and good picture quality when making video calls.
The phone runs Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box and also offers dual SIM support. It is backed by a 2300mAh battery, ensuring that users won’t have to charge the phone more than once a day if used averagely. Connectivity options on the phone include GPRS/ EDGE, 3G, GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Micro-USB.
Xolo said on social media that the registrations for the Xolo One HD will begin before the 1st of January 2016, and that it will be available exclusively via Amazon India for Rs. 4,777 (which is about 15,000 Naira).
The company however is yet to reveal when the handset will fully hit the shelves at stores in the Asian country.
