XOLO is getting ready with a successor to the company’s previously launched A500 smartphone in the form of A500+. The upcoming smartphone will keep the display size to 4-inch, but replace the processor to MediaTek from Qualcomm in the predecessor.
According to a report in Android Nova, the XOLO A500+ is expected to be launched in June (next month) for around INR 6,500.
The smartphone will run on Android 4.2, which is a positive as it is the latest version of Android available right now, not sure if it will be the case when A500+ goes on sale in June. Among other specs, the phone will reportedly pack a 5MP rear camera, VGA front camera, dual-SIM support and 2,000 mAh battery.
A500+ also packs 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot. At the reported pricing, the features do seem decent but it will be the real life performance that will matter the most.
XOLO has been expanding its smartphone portfolio at a very swift face in the recent few weeks. Thanks to the presence of Intel-powered phones, XOLO’s portfolio isn’t as monotonous as other home-grown companies that are just launching Chinese re-branded products, although it is important to point out here that XOLO does sell some re-branded products, and A500+ seems to be one of those.
