Xolo on Wednesday launched its Xolo Era X smartphone in India, priced at Rs. 5,777. The smartphone is already available to buy exclusively from Amazon India.
The Xolo Era X is a dual-SIM (4G+4G) supporting smartphone running Android 5.1 Lollipop, which the company claims is upgradeable to Android 6.0 Marshmallow – we’d not hold our breath for the update though. It features a 5-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) IPS display with Corning Gorilla Glass protection, pixel density of 294ppi and 178-degree wide viewing angle. Under-the-hood it packs a quad-core Spreadtrum SC9830A processor clocked at 1.5GHz, clubbed with 2GB DDR3 RAM, and Mali 400 MP2 GPU.
It sports an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash alongside a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Also housed is an 8GB of inbuilt storage, which can be expanded via a microSD card (up to 32GB). On the connectivity front, the Xolo Era X features 4G (VoLTE), Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS, and Micro-USB 2.0 connectivity. Measuring 145.5x72x8.45mm, the smartphone weighs 140 grams. Also included are accelerometer, proximity sensor, and ambient light sensor. The Era X also comes equipped with multilingual support for regional languages: Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Odia, Punjabi, Tamil, and Telugu.
The Xolo Era X is backed by a 2500mAh removable battery, which offers a talk time of up to 16 hours 43 minutes on 2G, and up to 10 hours 35 minutes on 3G. It is available in Black colour variant.
The company last week unveiled the Era 4G priced at Rs. 4,777. The smartphone will be available exclusively via Snapdeal starting February 26 in a flash sale model. Most of the specifications of the handset are similar to the aforementioned Xolo Era X except the RAM and camera.
