The Xolo Play that was all over the net since May 2013 finally shows up on the official Xolo website. The Xolo Play specifications are out and it is indeed powered by a 1.5GHz quad core processor with 12 core GPU. 

The handset is powerful, no doubt and its basically made for  the gaming users. Play is set up to the next level of gaming with 1.5GHz Tegra Nvidia quad core and a 5th core that enhances the battery performance. Add it to the 12 core Nvidia GeForce GPU.

The Play sports a 4.7 inch screen with HD resolution with OGS technology. There is an 8MP primary camera with BSI sensor and a 2MP secondary camera with video call option. This handset is 10.4mm thick and weighs about 167 grams. Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean OS runs the show with 1GB RAM and 4GB internal storage.

Xolo Play supports 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS. There is only a single SIM slot. Battery is 2000 mAh with estimated talktime of up to 11 hours on 2G and 9 hours on 3G networks. Check the website. The hardware is definitely more powerful than the Mediatek MT6589T (Turbo) chipset and its all up to the price.
