A juicy 2500 mAh battery will power all hardware. Other expected features include dual SIM support, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS. Software is expected to be Android 4.4 KitKat.
Selfie focused Xolo Opus 3 seems to do all things right on paper. It sounds like a decent quad core smartphone with a sharp display, quad core chipset and decent imaging hardware.
