Xolo, the premium brand of Lava has emerged as one of the best manufacturers of smartphone in the budget segment in the country. The company has just launched a budget smartphone, the Xolo Q700S in India for Rs 9,999 which we believe might just be the best budget handset in the sub Rs 10,000 range which comes with a quad core processor. Let us have a look at its specifications:
- It has a 4.5 inch capacitive display which has a resolution of 854x480 pixels. You can't really expect more in this price range because a 720p display would raise the price.
- Under the hood is a 1.3 GHz quad core Mediatek MT6582M processor which has already proven its worth in the budget segment
- It runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and seeing the fact that the Indian companies are moving towards upgrading their devices, it might just get 4.3 treatment as well.
- It gets a 1GB RAM for multitasking, a 4GB internal memory and you get a microSD card as well to expand the memory by 32 GB
- There's an 8MP snapper at the rear which supports 1080p video recording and there's a VGA camera as well up front for video calling
- Its a Dual SIM device and supports two GSM cards.
- To ensure you remain connected at all times, you get 3G, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0 and GPS
- Giving it the juice is a 1,800 mAh battery
- It comes in a metallic finish which gives it a premium look.
- It will be available in golden and silver colours at a price of Rs 9,999
If I were in the market for a budget quad core device in the sub Rs 10,000 range, for me, the buck stops here. What about you?
