Lava is on a roll. Launching new smartphone models left and right, Lava has finally launched their 2nd smartphone based on Intel’s Atom platform. Welcome Intel Lexington chipset, Intel’s latest budget Atom chipset aboard the Lava XOLO X800. While we can’t say how much faster (or slower) the XOLO X800 will be in comparison to the older XOLO X900, the naming scheme does give a good idea that it is a step lower than the previous smartphone. The price says another story, with a very affordable price tag, a market where Intel doesn’t usually venture into.
Lava XOLO X800
The Lava XOLO X800 sports the latest Intel ATOM chipset code named Lexington chipset. Featuring specifications that are simply not up to the mark, the XOLO X800 is a smartphone that will be soon forgotten, unless it’s price is brought under check.

Launching for a price of Rs. 8,999 we really don’t know what Lava was thinking with such a phone. Surely nobody would go for such a low end smartphone that too at such a high price!
Meanwhile, the old Lava XOLO X900 smartphone is looking real good for just Rs. 14,500!
