Last week, we reported that Xolo was planning to launch an online-only sub-brand dubbed ‘Black’. Now, the first image of the upcoming smartphone from Black has been revealed.
GSMArena has managed to get their hands on what seems to be the first ever smartphone from Black. As reported earlier, it seems have a dual-camera setup on the rear, along with a single-LED flash. If this turns out to be true, it will be the first smartphone in its price range to offer a dual-camera setup. The only device with a dual-camera setup that is anywhere near this leaked device would be the Huawei Honor 6 Plus, but it is priced around Rs. 26,499.
The device is expected to be launched sometime later this month, priced under Rs. 15,000. It will also reportedly feature LTE connectivity and the company’s new Hive 1.5 UI that is based on Android 5.0 Lollipop. All the smartphones launched under the Black brand will be priced between Rs. 10,000 to Rs. 20,000. Xolo is planning to compete with brands like Xiaomi, OnePlus, Motorola, and Asus by releasing value-for-money smartphones that are sold only through online retail channels.
