NXG electronics have now entered the Phablet market by launching the Xfab Phablet which is a dual SIM smartphone that runs on the Android 4.0 OS.  This Phablet is priced at Rs. 12,490 with free 8GB MicroSD card and a Scratch Guard.

This Xfab Phablet is powered by a single core 1GHz processor (Cortex A9) with 512MB RAM, 4GB internal memory and Micro SD slot (32GB – Class 12). The NXG site says 4GB+8GB the 8GB here refers to the free 8GB card that users will get with this smartphone.

The display screen is big enough at 5.2 inches. It’s capacitive 5 point touch screen with resolution of 800×480 pixels with 16M colours. This handset supports 3G (WCDMA HSPA), 2G, Wi-Fi with hotpot, micro USB with USB tethering, Bluetooth (A2DP & EDR) and GPS with A-GPS.

There is a 5 megapixel camera on the rear with Auto Focus and LED flash light. A front 0.3 MP camera is also present that can work well with Skype. The camera can record HD videos at 720p resolution.

NXG Xfab Phablet weighs 165 grams with a 9.7 mm thickness. The built quality seems really good. Media player can play AVI, FLV, MOV and MP4 files to name a few. A 2000 mAh battery gives power to this handset. The standby / Talktime are not known but probably could last for over a day of heavy usage.

Spice mobiles have still not launched their Mi-500 and the Karbonn A24 is expected to be launched in the month of August. Both these handsets come with dual core processor and the A24 in fact with a better screen resolution. Now considering these options (to be launched) the Rs. 12490 price tag for the NXG Xfab Phablet seems too high. I doubt if users would want to go for it. In case you do want to buy, you can order it from the NXG website – the delivery will start from 10th august 2012.
