The Xolo Q1000 has been officially launched in India, priced at Rs. 14,999. The quad-core Android smartphone is the company’s third such device, following the Q800 and Q700.
The Android 4.2 Jelly Bean-based Xolo Q1000 features a 5-inch IPS LCD display, with a resolution of 1280×720 pixels (294ppi). The display is protected by DragonTrail glass, promising high scratch and shock resistance, despite being much thinner than conventional glass. This allows the Xolo Q1000 to be just 8.8mm thick.
Bearing a 1.2GHz quad-core processor with a PowerVR SGX 544 GPU (the MediaTek MT6589 chipset), the Xolo Q1000 also has 1GB of RAM. The Q1000 also has 4GB of built-in storage, with microSD card expandability up to 32GB. The 3G-enabled dual-SIM smartphone features Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0, FM radio, microUSB, and 3.5mm audio jack connectivity.
Xolo has given the Q1000 an 8MP BSI rear autofocus camera with HDR features, 1080p HD video recording, and LED flash, apart from a 1.2MP BSI front-facing camera. It also features a dedicated camera button.
Powered by a 2100mAh battery, the Xolo Q1000 will supposedly deliver a music playback time of up to 21 hours, a talktime of up to 14 hours, and standby time of up to 350 hours.
The latest quad-core offering from Xolo will be joining a very competitive space in the Indian market, with ten budget quad-core smartphones already available in the country in roughly the same price range. Do check out our list of the best budget quad-core smartphones for more details.
