LAVA Ltd., a fairly new smartphone manufacturer headquartered in India was chosen by Intel to sport the first Intel Atom-powered smartphone available in the market. The result of the Intel-LAVA partnership, the XOLO X900, was launched yesterday in New Delhi.
Announced at the MWC 2012, the XOLO X900 didnâ€™t turn too many heads at the event as the spotlight was stolen by Lenovo K800. Under the hood of this affordable smartphone is the 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor Z2460 with Intel Hyper Threading Technology and a 400MHz GPU that should equate to a very nice smartphone experience.
It is also equipped with an 8MP camera that is capable of shooting 10 pictures in a second at 15fps and 1080p HD video recording at 30fps. This handset will also come preinstall with the Android Gingerbread but is said to have an OTA update to ICS in the future.
The XOLO X900 will only be distributed in India starting April 23 with a very enticing retail price of INR22,000 (which roughly Php18,000). Here are the other things that XOLO X900 has to offer:
