Determined to bar the way to the Moto E on its own land, the Indian brand Xolo has unveiled a new Android KitKat smartphone at competitive prices.
After selling Xolo Q600s at the equivalent of 95 euros, it is now time for a new smartphone called Xolo Q1011 to 122 euros which is making its appearance.
The Xolo Q1011 smartphone makes first call to a MediaTek platform with quad-core processor running at 1.3 GHz (against dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm for Moto E) and 1 GB of RAM. It offers a 5-inch 720p IPS display (against 4.3 inch qHD, but treatment with Gorilla Glass) screen, 3G+ connection to 21 Mbit/s, Wi-Fi 802.11n/Bluetooth 4.0/GPS, an 8 megapixel digital camera (against 5 megapixels), a 2 Megapixel webcam (absent on the Moto E) and flash memory of 4GB expandable to MicroSD. Finally it loads a battery of 2250 mAh leaving up to 27 hours on 2G, 14 hours on 3G and 500 hours standby.
This model presents itself as a serious competitor with a better technical specification. It remains to be seen if there is the same solid feeling and well finished. Availability in emerging markets such as India is scheduled this Friday, June 27.
