At an event in Goa today, Intel and Lava launched the Xolo X1000, for a price of Rs 19,990.
This is the third Android smartphone by the company with an Intel chip, along with the Xolo X90 and the Xolo X500. The X1000 features a 4.7 inch 720p curved glass display, 2Ghz Intel Atom Z2480 processor, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB of internal memory with a microSD card slot, 3G, 8 Megapixel camera and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, all powered by a 1900 mAh battery. That being said, the Intel processor in the X1000 is based on the company’s Medfield Platform, which is already a generation older than the current Clover Trail+ platform.
Still, that’s a lot of phone for that price. Looking good, eh?
