It is one of the more compact quad core smartphones as well, and it’s now available for just Rs. 25,990. That, is a pretty nice price for 4 core horse power.

Intel Lava XOLO X900
Intel launched its first smartphone into the market with not-so-renowned Lava. The Lava XOLO X900 is the first Intel x86 Atom based Android smartphone, and it isn’t too shabby.
Powered by a 1.6 GHz Intel Atom with Hyper Threading, the phone is fast enough to beat dual cores and come close to or even match some quad core ARM based SOCs, way to go for a single core chipset. The phone has a decent 4″ display with an odd 1024 x 600 pixels resolution, which however grant it a very high 295 ppi pixels density. The design is industrial, and sets the phone apart.
Lava XOLO X900 Specifications
- Intel ATOM Z2460 SOC
- 1.6 GHz single core Saltwell CPU with Hyper Threading
- 400 MHz PowerVR SGX540 GPU
- 1 GB of 32-bit dual channel LPDDR2 RAM
- 4.03″ (1024 x 600 pixels) resolution display, 295 ppi
- 8 MP rear camera, 1080p @ 30 fps
- 1.3 MP front facing camera
- 16 GB of internal storage
- 1,460 mAh non-removable Li-ion battery
- Android 4.0 ICS
Lava XOLO X900 Buy in India
The Lava XOLO X900 launched for a steep price of Rs. 22,000. However, over the months the price of this smartphone has dropped to a point where it’s value for money cannot be ignored anymore.
For Rs. 15,000 the smartphone is an excellent choice for first time Android buyers. You simply cannot get the same features and stunning performance at a similar price.
