XOLO has silently released the successor to its Q1000 Opus smartphone in the Indian market. Dubbed as XOLO Q1000 Opus 2, the phone is currently on sale at Snapdeal.com for INR 9,199 (MRP: INR 10,499) but we expect expanded availability in the coming days.
The phone features a number of improvements over its predecessor like the use of Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor instead of Broadcom BCM23550 processor as well as upgraded camera and display resolution. The new Opus 2 comes with a 5-inch qHD display, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage and microSD card slot. The phone runs on Android 4.3, which is slightly disappointing given the Q1000 Opus has already got the KitKat update and one would expect the successor to come pre-loaded with the latest Android version.
On the imaging front, XOLO has included an 8MP rear camera with LED flash and 2MP front camera on the phone. In addition, the phone packs 2000 mAh battery, dual-SIM support, 3G and the usual set of connectivity options.
The phone is available in Black and White colour options. We expect to see an official announcement sometime this week.
