Xolo, a sub-brand of Lava Mobiles known for its Intel-powered smartphones, has launched the much-awaited mid-range smartphone Xolo Q800 in the burgeoning Indian market.  

Popular Indian e-retailer Flipkart has listed the Xolo Q800 for price tag of ₹12,499. The smartphone packs a quad-core processor and runs on the Android Jelly Bean mobile OS.

Taking note of specs in the above table, the Xolo Q800 packs pretty decent features capable of giving a stiff fight to Indian as well as MNC smartphones in the market.

One major drawback of Xolo Q800 is its subpar display, with 245 pixels per inch resolution; it comes short against its Indian counterpart Micromax A116 Canvas HD which boasts of a 295 ppi display.

However, Xolo Q800's smaller build can win some fans who prefer to hold smaller smartphones than 5-inch big screen devices such as Galaxy Grand, Micromax Canvas HD and others.

Earlier, Q800 was speculated to release on 14 March as the Xolo had begun countdown with a tag 'Mission X' in the company website. Now, reports have emerged that Xolo will bring a flagship Intel powered device next week.
