Lava Mobiles will soon join the quad core bandwagon by launching the Xolo Q800 within the next few months. The handset will run on Jelly bean OS and probably will come with the same specifications as on the Micromax A116.

As per reports the handset will sport a 4.5 inch screen with 960×540 pixel resolution. The handset will run on Jelly Bean OS 4.1 with 1GB RAM. Features included are 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS, Dual SIM support, micro USB and 3.5mm jack. There will be two cameras a front camera of (may be) 2MP resolution and the rear 8MP AF camera with LED flash.

It will not be the only quad core handset that Xolo is planning to launch; in fact 3 more quad core smartphones will become part of the ‘Q’ family apart from Q800. These handsets will be available within the next 2 months.

So far the low cost quad core market is being ruled by Micromax A116 and the next one is the Karbonn S1, but sadly none of these handsets are easily available and could take another week or two to show up. UMI X2 is another tempting handset, but for it to do well the UMI company needs to setup few service centers.

Xolo Q800

The Lava Xolo Q800 price I guess should be less than the MMX A116 cause of smaller screen size. This could also become a good alternative for users who are not comfortable with 5 inch A116. Well this March and the coming months will be full of surprises, new models, competitive prices and much more, stay tuned.
