Xolo Launches Black, Priced At Rs 12,999
Since its launch in 2012, XOLO has tried but never been able to achieve the level of popularity like its rivals Motorola and Xiaomi have. XOLO hopes to change that through its upcoming phone “Black”, which will be exclusively sold on Flipkart from today.
The Xolo Black is equipped with a 5.5-inch screen carrying 1080 x 1920 resolution. That works out to a 401ppi pixel density. Gorilla Glass 3 protects the display from scratches and is also found on the phone’s glass back. The Snapdragon 615 SoC powers the handset, featuring an octa core CPU and the Adreno 405 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of expandable storage. On the back, you will find a dual camera set up with 13MP and 2MP cameras on board. The latter is used to change the focal point of an image, Lytro-style. On the front, a 5MP snapper is ready to snap your selfies. Keeping the phone running is the job given to the 3200mAh battery inside, and Android 5.0 is pre-installed with HIVE UI 1.5 running on top.
The phone supports 4G LTE connectivity and measures a slim 7.3mm thick. The Black is treated with an oleophobic coating to prevent fingerprints from marring the device’s finish. And the power button lights up in different colors to alert the user of certain notifications.
Xolo is adopting the online business model considering how it has expanded fanbase for companies like Xiaomi, OnePlus, Yu and even Motorola, which was struggling until it launched Moto X, in India. The device is priced at Rs 12,999.
