Last Updated On: October 31st, 2015

The company has been rapidly gaining everyone’s attention and now Xolo is one among the fastest growing smartphone manufacturers in India. Its recent product-‘Xolo Black’, created a craze among the smartphone lovers in the nation, and the all-new flagship-‘Xolo Black 1X’, has created waves in the Indian media, and if you are looking for a new phone within a budget of INR 10K, then this could be the ideal choice for you. But remember that the handset comes exclusively in black.

The design completely resembles its predecessor, Xolo Black (INR 12,999), and hence, comes with a leather finish on the top and bottom as well. Furthermore, it’s also equipped with a glass back.

Priced at around 10,000 INR the phone comes with a 5.0 inch Full HD Display with a 1080×1920 resolution (441 ppi). But instead of CG3 (Corning Gorilla Glass 3), the display is protected by a layer of Dragon Trail Glass. Powered by an octa-core Mediatek Chip running at a frequency of 1.3 GHz, the device is equipped with a 64-bit Mali T-720MP3 GPU, which is highly efficient and can offer you a decent performance. The primary 13 MP camera can be used to click some quality snaps with an LED flash and phase detection autofocus technology. It’s cool to know that the secondary camera (5 MP) is accompanied by an LED Flash too. However, there’s another thing which you should be excited about- the smartphone supports 1080p video recording @30 fps, which completely makes you feel like you possess a high-end smartphone camera.

The smartphone houses a 3GB RAM which sounds completely insane and supports 32 GB internal storage that can be expanded to 128 GB via SD card. It’s a dual SIM device, that also supports connectivity like 4G LTE. The phone is equipped with a 2400 mAh Lithium Polymer battery and comes pre-loaded with Android Lollipop (v5.1), with the stunning Hive Atlas UI, that can be further upgraded to Marshmallow.

However, the specifications are mind-blowing. But, we’re not sure about how durable the device is. Yes, it’s an impressive device. But, we recommend you to wait for the hands-on review or customer reviews on online e-commerce sites.

The device is exclusively available on Snapdeal.
