If you are a smartphone gaming buff then this news is just for you. Smartphone brand Xolo has just launched its octa-core gaming centered handset named Xolo Play 8X-1100 for Indian market. Xolo in past as well had released couple of smartphones for gaming enthusiasts and this device is continuation of that trend only. It is important to note that this launch comes soon after company launched Xolo Q700s plus and Xolo Q1000s plus handsets.
Xolo Play 8X-1100 has been launched at an official price point of Rs. 14,999 which we feel is somewhat justifiable for an octa-core gaming smartphone.

Some of the previous gaming smartphones launched by Xolo include octa-core Xolo Play 8X-1200 and hexa-core Xolo Play 6X-1000.
Now let’s see what this smartphone has to offer. This smartphone is powered by a 1.7 Ghz true octa-core processor (unspecified) paired with 2 GB of RAM. A 700 MHz Mali 450 GPU is also present on board for handling rich graphics and media required while playing heavy games. The Xolo Play 8X-1100 runs Andorid 4.4 KitKat OS and has a 5-inch HD IPS display, protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. It also features a 13 megapixel auto focus camera with Sony Exmor RS sensor and flash at the rear coupled with a 5 megapixel camera at the front which sports a BSI sensor and 88 degree wide view angle for better selfies. Front camera supports 1080p video recording and playback.
All the standard sensors like gyroscope, magnetometer, accelerometer, ambient light sensor, proximity sensor and hall effect sensor comes pre loaded in this device. It offers 16 GB of in built storage which could be increased up to 32 GB using a microSD card.
