The Era 5X is powered by a MediaTek Helio A22 with a quad-core 2.0GHz processor and 3GB of RAM. Built-in storage is 32GB and it's expandable. The OS is Star OS 5.0, based on Android 8.1 Oreo. The Era 5X has a 3,000mAh battery.

XOLO laid out the specs, but didn't detail the price or when the Era 5X will start shipping. Those details are expected later this month.
