I’m not understanding the strategy of Xolo brand here, but it has released a new smartphone in the Indian smartphone market which runs on very old Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS. Of course, the company’s homegrown UI, HIVE is handling the skin side, but the software underneath is too old to be super protective.
But if this thing doesn’t matter at your end, then the device newly released is Xolo 8X-1000i and it is priced 6,999 INR. Also, it is available exclusively at Snapdeal, without any initial discounts for now.
The specifications underneath reads a 5-inch IPS display with HD resolution of 720×1280 pixels, 294 PPI of pixel density, Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection, MediaTek MT6592M SoC, an octa-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and Mali 450 GPU.
The storage expansion option is available with the support for up to 32GB. The camera sides read an 8MP shooter with Exmor R sensor at the rear coupled with an LED flash and a very ordinary 2MP shooter at the front. The device measures 7.9mm in thickness.
At the connectivity side, LTE is missing, which is another hiccup, but the rest of the chores are packed like 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and microUSB port. Another loose end is the battery inside which reads a power rating of just 1,920mAh.
Clearly, the device is nowhere near the competition and it looks like Xolo has forgotten to launch this device, I guess, a year ago.
I wouldn’t recommend How2This readers to buy this smartphone, not just because it ships with low standard specifications compared to the competition but it also runs over an older Android version. Not a good move, Xolo!
