Lava launched its 5-inch Dual SIM A1000 Jelly Bean phone in India.
The Xolo A1000 is manufactured with a unique technology called the One Glass Solution (OGS) display technology, which helps in reducing the physical size of the phone. The phone is available at a price of 13,999/- Indian Rupees in Flipkart, and it will take 7-8 days to ship the phone, according to them. The Micromax Canvas A116 HD also is available at exactly the same price tag. There would have been “the End” of Micromax Canvas A116 HD, if Xolo A1000 was priced below Rs.13,999/- and slightly above 10.000/-. But as both the phones have same price tag, the competition is gonna be real tough.
The phone has a 5-inch HD IPS display. It has a 1280×720 resolution at 295 PPI. As mentioned above, the phone is Dual SIM capable. It has a size measuring 70.8×143.5×8.8 mm. It has a memory of 1 GB RAM and 4 GB ROM. It has an internal memory of 4 GB, and an external memory, which can be expanded up to 32 GB using microSD card slot. Xolo A1000 has a MediaTek MT6577 chip set with a dual-core 1GHz CPU and PowerVR SGX531 GPU. The device runs on Android v4.1 (Jelly Bean) Operating System.
The Xolo A1000 has a primary camera of 8 Mega pixel with LED Flash, BSI sensor and HDR. The secondary camera of 1.2 Mega pixel has BSI sensor. It has GPRS connectivity and 3G connectivity with 7.2 Mbps HSDPA; 5.76 Mbps HSUPA. The device has a Wi-Fi connectivity at 802.11 b/g/n and also micro USB port too. The phone packs a v4 Bluetooth also. The 2100 mAh battery of the phone provides a standby time of 350 hrs (2G). it gives a talk time of 14 hrs on 2G and 10 hrs on 3G.
Xolo A1000 comes in two classic colours, Black and White. The phone is available across India. Whether this will slow down the rapid sales of Micromax A116 Canvas HD, is a question which needs some more anticipation before answering.
