We have heard quite a bit about Xolo’s Tegra powered tablet and all but an official launch was pending. Moments ago, Xolo officially launched the Play Tegra Note tablet in India for Rs 17,999. The tablet was already up for pre-orders on Flipkart for the same price, and Xolo was also offering a smart cover for free to people ordering the tablet ahead of the launch.
Talking of the hardware, the Xolo Play Tegra Note is powered by a Tegra 4 SoC featuring a quad-core Cortex A15 CPU, which also includes a fifth core for better battery efficiency and a massive 72-core GeForce GPU. The tablet is also bundled with a double-sided stylus, which essentially lets users operate the tablet using both the tips of the stylus.
It flaunts a 7-inch (1280×800 pixels) display with 216ppi and includes other features like 5-megapixel rear camera with auto focus, VGA front camera with software add-ons like Camera Awesome app, 16GB of internal storage that can be expanded to up to 32GB using a microSD card and a 15.17Wh battery that is good enough for 10 hours of HD video playback.
The tablet runs on stock Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and Nvidia will be pushing OTA Android updates rather than relying on its hardware vendor partners. At this price point, Xolo’s tablet will face some stiff competition from the likes of the Google Nexus 7 (2013) and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3.
