Indian premium smartphone maker Xolo has yet again launched a device by the name Q1100. Just couple of days back Xolo launched an entry level music smartphone A500 Club and it seems company doesn’t want to leave any stone unturned to make an impact in Indian market. The timing of the launch is possibly aimed to take on dual SIM Moto G with almost same set of specs and similar pricing. Xolo is yet to confirm the date of availability of Q1100 but going by the past record it may be launched any time soon on some online retailer.
Xolo Q1100 has 8 megapixel rear snapper and a 2 megapixel webcam compared to 5 megapixel rear and 0.3 megapixel webcam of Moto G. Apart from this Q1100 has a 5 inch touch screen compared with the 4.5 inch touch screen of Moto G. The plus points for Moto G are availability of stock Android 4.4 Kitkat on it as well as lower price.
Now let us review the key specifications of this brand new smartphone:
This is only the second Xolo smartphone to be powered by a snapdragon processor. Last year Xolo came out with Q500 as it’s first phone having a snapdragon processor.
