India has seen the launch of the new Xolo Play 8X-1200 smartphone which has been targeted by its maker towards those who have a penchant for gaming and clicking selfies. In exchange of Rs 19999, buyers of the Android handset will be granted high-end specs which include an octa core processor and a 5MP front-facing camera with a flash sitting alongside it.

The Xolo Play 8X-1200 handset may not be that attractive in terms of its looks, but its hardware does catch eyeballs easily. Featuring a thickness of just 9.7mm, this phone carries on it a 5-inch OGS touchscreen that delivers its visuals in 1920 x 1080p resolution. And then there’s the MT6592T SoC on its inside which houses eight Cortex A7 cores running at 2GHz each.

Furthermore, this chipset also features a Mali 450 GPU that’s clocked at 700MHz. Although its processor is extremely capable of taking on even the most graphically-intense games Android has to offer, it won’t go easy on the battery life. Hence, accompanying the SoC within the smartphone is a 2300mAh power unit, apart from 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.

There is no microSD card slot onboard the Play 8X-1200, so you’re stuck with just the embedded flash memory. However, this handset does feature USB OTG support for connecting peripherals including external storage drives. Other important aspects of the phone include a 13MP rear PureCel camera with dual LED flash and a 5MP front-facing shooter with flash.
