After the XOLO X900 which was the first-ever smartphone with an Intel-made processor, India-based Lava is launching another device with a CPU made by the company that we best know as a computer chip maker. The newly unveiled Lava XOLO X1000 uses Intel’s Atom Z2480 processor, which is basically an enhanced version of the Z2460 that can be found in the XOLO X900. It’s a single-core CPU which isn’t as powerful as the dual-core Clover Trail+ Z2580 processor that will power-up the upcoming Lenovo K900.
Back to the X1000; specs wise, it comes with a 4.7-inch 720p HD curved glass touchscreen, 8-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facing one, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of built-in storage, 3G, Wi-Fi, microSD memory card slot and a 1,900mAh battery. Unfortunately, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich rather than 4.1 Jelly Bean is running the show.
The XOLO X1000 is already available from Flipkart and Xolo.in for 19,999 rupees, the amount that translates into some $367. Starting from April 20th, it will also become widely available in actual brick-and-mortar stores.
