Earlier this week, Xolo launched the Q710s smartphone and so soon it has come up with yet another handset called Xolo Opus 3. Notably, this new offering is a selfie focused device that carries a price tag of Rs 8,499. Despite its focus on selfies, the handset comes with other capable aspects that will definitely make it excel in terms of competition. Let’s take a quick and detailed look at the hardware of the smartphone.
Camera and Internal Storage
Xolo Opus 3 has an 8 MP primary camera that uses a Sony Exmor R sensor along with LED Flash, auto focus, 5P Lens and f/2.0 aperture. While the rear camera appears to be convincing, the handset boasts of a 5 MP selfie camera at its front with 88 degree wide angle lens that can capture wider self portrait shots, thereby keeping up with the selfie trend.
Internal storage is standard at 8 GB along with the option for 32 GB expandable storage with the help of a micro SD card. This storage space should be adequate for the basic users and it is the one that we can expect from devices in this price bracket.
Processor and Battery
The Xolo offering is powered by 1.3 GHz quad core MediaTek MT6582M processor that comes assisted with Mali 400 MP2 graphics unit and 1 GB of RAM. Most of other smartphones in this range also feature a similar hardware combination and hence, the smartphone should be an average performer.
Battery capacity is 2,500 mAh and it is heftier that what we usually get to see in those smartphones that are available in the sub Rs 10,000 priced smartphones. We can expect this battery to pump in long hours of backup to the device under mixed usage.
Display and Other Features
There is a 5 inch IPS display that carries a HD screen resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. Such a screen with 294 pixels per inch pixel density is not uncommon in the devices belonging to this price bracket. This standard display will undoubtedly provide an acceptable performance under the basic tasks.
Xolo Opus 3 runs Android 4.4 KitKat and it comes with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, 3G and dual SIM functionality.
