Motorola Moto E effect: Xolo Q1000 Opus updated to Android KitKat


Xolo today announced that the Q1000 Opus has been updated to Android KitKat, making it the Indian smartphone vendor’s first device to run on the latest Android version. Xolo has further mentioned that other devices in Q lineup including the Q700S, Q1010i, Q1010 and the Q3000 too will be updated to KitKat by next month.

Motorola’s Moto E is the first device to run on Android KitKat in the sub-Rs 10,000 segment, and this seems like a reactionary move by Xolo. The Moto E went on sale at midnight on Flipkart and in the first 16 hours is already sold out.

The Q1000 Opus was launched back in December and it ran on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean at the time of launch. It features a 5-inch FWVGA IPS (480×854 pixels) display and is powered by a 1.2GHz Cortex A7 Broadcom quad-core chipset, paired with 1GB of RAM. It also includes 4GB internal memory, which is expandable through a microSD card, a 5-megapixel autofocus rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, and a 2,000mAh battery.

Xolo mentions that the KitKat update will bring smoother multitasking, SMS and MMS integration with Hangouts, redesigned email app, and deeper integration with Google Drive among others. The update is available via OTA. Have you updated your device? If yes, then let us know about the experience in the comments section below.
