Who here remembers the Lava Xolo X900? Not a lot of folks, eh? Still, the X900 has been a road-opener of sorts, being one of the world’s first ever Intel-powered smartphones. Riding that (small) wave of popularity, Lava has now introduced a new device, though it has ditched Intel’s mobile chipsets.
The Xolo A800 will be powered by an ARM-based dual-core 1 GHz MediaTek MT6577 processor instead, paired with 512 MB of RAM. Not the hardware configuration of a lifetime, but the A800 will have a couple of other aces up its sleeve.
First, it will be capable of taking in two SIM cards at once, which is a very popular feature in Asia. Second, it’ll have a surprisingly nice snapper on its back, with an 8 MP sensor, auto focus, LED flash and BSI sensor.
There’s not much else to get excited about, though you can’t say the rest of the specs are awfully disappointing either – 4.5-inch IPS display with 960 x 540 pixels resolution, Android 4.0 ICS, VGA front-facing cam, 4 GB of on-board storage, microSD support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a 1,600 mAh battery.
The Lava Xolo A800 is up for grabs in India for RS 11,999 (around $220).
