Xolo continues to extend its Q series portfolio with minor upgrades and the latest addition is Xolo Q800 X-Edition which is now available for Rs. 11,999 INR. Xolo Q800 initial shipped with MT6589M chipset and with subsequent price cuts, it was being shipped with MT658W-M chipset. Now the X edition of this phone comes with MT6589 chipset and rest of the specs remain similar to the predecessor.
This phone sports a 4.5 Inch qHD display which amounts to 244 pixels per inches. This is a fine clarity IPS LCD display but you can also get 5 inch HD display at this price range from Xolo Q1000 which is available with slightly higher price tag.
This phone is powered by MT6589 quad core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz. The main difference between MT6589M and MT6589 is in the GPU Clock frequency. The GPU is clocked at 156 MHz which is significantly less than 286 MHz in MT6589 chipset. The MT6589M can support only up to 8 MP camera with HD video recording, whereas MT6589 supports full HD video recording and playback with a 13 MP camera.
The RAM capacity remains same at 1 GB. The internal storage is 4 GB and can be extended to 32 MP using microSD support. The front and back camera both are equipped with a BSI sensor for better low light photography. The primary camera has a 8 MP sensor and is now capable of Full HD video recording. The front camera with 1 MP BSI sensor is also present for video calling.
The battery capacity is 2100 mAh and the body design and dimensions also remain same in this new variant. The connectivity features include 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS. The phone also supports dual SIM connectivity.
Xolo has released various upgraded variants in the recent past which includes, Xolo Q900 and Xolo Q700i. The upgrade to Xolo Q800 X edition makes some sense if you are a gamer and no sense if you are not much into gaming.You can buy this phone from Flipkart priced at Rs. 11,999
