The Q500 is Xolo’s answer to the likes of the Micromax Canvas Juice, Lava Iris 456 and iBall Andi 5 E7 amongst others in the sub-8K range of phones, all of which have been launched this week itself. Like all other affordable gadgets, it manages to offer a set of all the usual features without quoting an exorbitant amount.
The feature that Xolo seems very proud of is the X-TransPic application that has been loaded on the phone to make it capable of translating about absolutely anything from Hindi to English, including menu cards, posters, billboards and messages. Its front panel is dominated by a 4-inch touchscreen that makes the most of the OGS technology and delivers images in 800 x 480p resolution. The pixel density is of 233ppi. This display shares the spotlight with a webcam that is the owner of a VGA lens which has been tossed in for video calling purposes.
This handset’s primary camera situated on the rear surface has a 5MP lens and features like auto focus, digital zoom, video recording and more are also available. Based on the Android Jelly Bean 4.1 OS, the phone acquires steam from a 1.2GHz quad core Qualcomm MSM8225Q processor and 1GB of RAM. And you are likely to require more storage space than the internal memory of 4GB and thus you get to expand it by up to 32GB using a microSD card. It employs a 1450mAh battery too.
The Xolo Q500 has been listed on the official website with a price tag of Rs 7,999.
