The folks from XOLO have just launched their very first quad-core Android smartphone. The XOLO Q800 was detailed and launched late last week and arrives with some pretty good specs and hardware all for just $230. The only catch being we'll probably never see this phone arrive stateside. More details on this new arrival is available below.
XOLO was one of the first smartphone manufacturers to add an Intel Medfield processor to one of their devices, but now they have a powerful quad-core in their latest offering. Keeping up with the times the XOLO Q800 offers a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, a 4.5-inch qHD display, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and a decent 8 megapixel rear camera. We don't know who made that CPU and we'd love a higher resolution screen - but for $230 you can't really complain.
Other specs for their new Q800 include 4GB of internal storage, micro SD support, an 8 megapixel BSI camera, and a 1.2 front camera is also available. It also supports dual-SIM setups and comes with a 2,100 mAh battery. XOLO's biggest competitor in India, Micromax, have recently launched their own quad-core devices so XOLO is keeping up with the competition with their new Q800.
The all-new XOLO Q800 is available now for Rs. 12,499 (around $230 USD) and comes in cheaper than most of the competing devices in the region, including the Micromax A116 Canvas HD which has a pretty similar spec list. Overall the phone looks pretty slick and well designed, and even packs a YAMAHA 168 PA music system for enhanced audio. More details can be found below.
