Indian mobile handset maker Lava Mobiles’ subsidiary brand Xolo bounced back in the Indian smartphone market when it announced its Black series earlier this year. Having high hopes to give a new life to the brand the first handset under the series was announced but it didn’t make any buzz. Today Xolo has announced a second smartphone under the new series called the Black 1X.
The smartphone has a unique looking design with glass panels on the front and back with leather accents on the top and bottom edges. Peculiar as it may sound, but the use of different materials could turn out well.
The smartphone features a 5-inch full HD (1920×1080) display with Dragon Trail Glass protection. On the inside there is a 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6753 octa-core 64-bit processor with 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage, which can be expanded up to 128GB using a microSD card. The smartphone is 4G enabled and has two SIM card slots and features a 2,400mAh battery. In the photo department there is a 13MP camera with an LED flash and phase detection auto-focus at the back and a 5MP camera on the front. The smartphone with run on Android 5.1 Lollipop with company’s own HIVE Atlas UI on top.
The Xolo Black 1X is priced at Rs. 9,999 which sounds competitive as at this price point smartphones like Yu Yureka, Lenovo K3 Note and even the Asus Zenfone Laser are not offering such high-end specifications. The handset will be available through a flash sale model on Snapdeal with the first sale happening on the 6th of November.
