The A550s IPS handset is the next smartphone from XOLO that is priced at Rs. 5,799 and is powered by MediaTek dual core processor. The dual SIM handset is listed on their website – it runs on Jelly bean 4.2.

And now it seems like ever manufacturer are launching handsets with MediaTek dual core processor. The XOLO A550s IPS (upgraded XOLO A500s) is also using the 1GHz dual core MT6572M chipset with Mali 400 GPU.

KitKat is what most users would naturally prefer, unfortunately the A550s doesn’t come loaded with that instead it is using the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS. I am not sure if the handset will get the 4.4.2 update. When it comes to memory and storage this handset is loaded with minimal RAM of 512MB and internal storage of 4GB. There is micro SD slot for adding external storage.

This dual SIM handset sports a 4 inch screen with 800 x 480 pixels resolution (256K colours). Screen is IPS and supports 2 point multi touch. There are dual cameras a front facing VGA with native video calling support and 5MP rear facing camera with LED flash. Rear camera can record 720p videos.

The eye catchy XOLO A550s IPS will hit the stores soon for Rs. 5,799.
