Lava’s XOLO A1000 phablet is now available online. The smartphone is currently on sale from Flipkart with an expected shipping time of 7-8 days. A1000 has been priced at INR 13,999, which is a decent price, but competition is very strong in this segment, so Lava should have gone a little more aggressive on the pricing front.
Meant to be a direct competitor to Micromax’s A116 Canvas HD, XOLO A1000 lags on the processor department from A116, which packs a 1.2GHz MediaTek MT6589 quad-core processor compared to 1GHz dual-core Mediatek MT6577 processor in XOLO A1000. Other specifications of A1000 are similar to that of A116 Canvas HD.
XOLO A1000 comes with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, 5-inch 720p HD display, dual-SIM connectivity, 2100 mAh battery and 1GB RAM. The smartphone also features 3G, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, and 4GB of internal storage.
Company is yet to officially announce the smartphone, but we are expecting to see one in the coming days.
Lava has increasingly become active with its XOLO brand and had recently launched its second-Intel powered smartphone in the form of X500. XOLO A1000 will join already available X900, A500, A700 and A800 smartphones.
