The Xolo Q1001 is a 5-inch smartphone for $100

17 March, 2015

Another budget-minded entry in the company's lineup, the Xolo Q1001, has just been announced. It comes with dual SIM slots and 3G connectivity, and is priced to sell. Stores in India will offer it at INR 6,199, or just shy of $100.

Obviously, you shouldn't expect miracles at this price point, and the smartphone comes with rather basic equipment. For starters, the 5-inch screen is of 480 x 854 pixel resolution, which stretches pretty thin on that diagonal. It is an IPS panel at least, so it should provide decent viewing angles.

You get a Mediatek MT6582 chipset with a quad-core Cortex-A7 processor clocked at 1.3GHz, coupled with just 512MB of RAM, a low and limiting amount in the Android realm. Speaking of, the OS version out of the box is KitKat 4.4. The built-in storage is 4GB, but is thankfully expandable up to 32GB.

The 5MP rear camera is aided by an LED flash, while the VGA front shooter is mostly adequate for video calls. A 2,000mAh battery has been fitted in the the boxy rectangular body, which measures 143 x 73.2 x 9.5 mm. Weight remains unquoted though, as with previous Xolo devices.
