Vishal Sehgal, Co-founder & Director, Lava International said, “Our partnership with Intel continues. With the first XOLO device X900 in April last year, we redefined speed and performance by bringing in the first 1.6GHz Intel HT based smartphone to the world. Earlier this year, with XOLO X500, we bought this high-speed smartphone experience into the sub 10K price segment. Now, with XOLO X1000 and its 2Ghz Intel HT processor, the customers will get to experience an entirely new definition of speed and performance. That, added to the stunning looks of this smartphone, is sure to take the breath away of our ever-growing tribe of XOLO lovers.”
Xolo had launched the X900, its first Intel-based smartphone in April 2012. The company later added the Xolo X500 to its portfolio, which was the second Intel-powered smartphone.
Xolo X500 (Review) features an Atom Z2420 processor, which has a clock speed of 1.2GHz and combines Intel’s hyper-threading technology. It is a dual-SIM smartphone, which runs on Android 4.0.
