Yesterday, we reported that Lava could launch a device by the name of the Xolo X500 in India for Rs 8,999. Now, we can officially confirm that Lava has launched the device in India for Rs 8,999.
The device features Intel’s new Lexington chips, which has a clock speed of 1.2GHz and features Intel’s hyper-threading technology that simulates the presence of extra processor cores. The Atom Z2420 processor used in the device was unveiled earlier this month at CES. Intel claims that this new chipset consumes very less battery, and is ideal for multi-tasking and provides smooth performance.
The device flaunts a 3.5-inch display with a 480×320 pixel resolution, 512 MB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory, dual-SIM capabilities, and a 1,500 mAh battery.
The device supports 1080p playback and it also has an integrated HSPA+ antenna for 3G connectivity. Other wireless connectivity options include Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
Intel is really gung-ho about the capabilities of its new Lexington chip, especially in the field of photography. According to Intel, the Xolo X500 can shoot images in a burst mode at 6-frames per second using its 5-megapixel rear camera which can also shoot 1080p video.
The Xolo X500 is based on the Intel Lexington reference design that the company showed off at CES. Specs wise it is identical to it and in fact we are seeing similar devices prop up in other markets under different brand names.
Previously, Lava became the first smartphone brand to launch a device with an Intel based processor with its Xolo X900. The Xolo X900 utilized the Intel Medfield chip and it was also based on the Intel Medfield reference design.
The Xolo X500 as of now runs of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, so it is not running the latest build of Android, which is Android Jelly Bean. The device will be available in the market in the next two-three days.
