OPlus has not only announced its plans of launching the XonPhone 5 in India on Thursday, but it has also revealed its impressive USP. According to this, the firm will be setting up over 350 service centers spread across India and provide door to door pick and drop services for the convenience of its consumers.

The XonPhone 5 will be running on Android 4.4 KitKat operating system and employ a quad-core MediaTek MTK6582 processor clocked at 1.3 GHz. This processor is paired with a standard 1 GB of RAM to ensure a lag-free and smooth operation along with efficient multi-tasking.

OPlus has given the XonPhone 5 a 5 inch HD IPS OGS display carrying a screen resolution of 1280×720 pixels and this is claimed to be capable enough of delivering sharp and bright colors. Enhancing these aspects of the phone is an 8 MP primary snapper at its back with auto focus, LED flash and FHD video recording. This is coupled with a 2 MP front-facing camera that will be well suited for video conferencing and for clicking selfies keeping the users with the trend.

The interesting aspect of this sub Rs 10,000 priced smartphone is its surplus 16 GB of default storage space of which 12 GB will be user accessible. This storage capacity can be expanded up to 32 GB by means of a micro SD card. Other notable features in the XonPhone 5 include Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G, Bluetooth and dual SIM functionality.

It has already been announced that the XonPhone 5 will be made available exclusively via online retailer Snapdeal for the alleged sub Rs 10,000 price range. While such advanced specifications including 16 GB of storage is a rare sight in this price bracket, the handset will be a tough challenger to many offerings from the local and global players.

  1. With such attractive specs and price range, the phone is definitely going to attract the attention of the customers and would be tempted for buying the same. If the phone were to have a slightly improved RAM, then probably, this phone would have remained in the hands of the customers for long and since that happens to be a laggard, customers may chose to wait for some more time for a device with better RAM and battery capacity..Also, the continuous inflow of such devices happening are attracting the customers, there is a continuous sale of their existing devices at very low prices and this has resulted in a flood of such second hand devices and for new entrants, it has provided an opportunity to get such smart phones at throwaway prices.in the secondary markets, thus making such phones available to one and all and thus, the basic phones may disappear altogether in the near future.
