Indian phone maker Lava has just announced its third ever device to sport an Intel processor. The XOLO X900 from last year was the first Intel-powered smartphone to go on sale, and in the meantime we also saw the XOLO X500 being introduced as an affordable offering, with an Intel Atom Z2420 ‘Lexington’ at the helm.
And now it’s time for the Lava XOLO X1000 to steal the spotlight. This uses an Intel Atom Z2480 processor, which is basically an enhanced version of the Z2460 that can be found in the XOLO X900. The Z2480 is a single-core part, and it’s sort of midway between the Z2420 which aims at affordable devices and the upcoming Z2580 which is a dual-core performance part that is expected to debut in Lenovo’s K900.
The Lava XOLO X1000 also has a 4.7-inch 720p curved glass touchscreen, an 8 MP rear camera, a 1.3 MP front camera, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, 3G, and a 1,900 mAh battery. It runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, disappointingly.
The XOLO X1000 is available to order starting today at Flipkart and Xolo.in for 19,999 rupees, which is approximately $367 or €284 at the current exchange rates. On April 20, the Lava XOLO X1000 will also become widely available in actual brick-and-mortar stores.
