xolo q500The XOLO brand might not be one familiar to some, and unsurprisingly so as the brand is probably better well-known in its home country of India. However the company has been making the headlines as they were one of the first few manufacturers in the world to release a smartphone powered by Intel’s Medfield platform in the form of the XOLO X900 that saw a release in 2012. Well it looks like the company has a new phone in the works and its none other than the Q500, but unlike the X900, this particular model will sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Play chipset clocked at 1.2GHz.

Other specs include a 4” WVGA display with a pixel density of 233ppi. It will be accompanied by 1GB of RAM, 4GB of onboard storage expandable via microSD, a 5MP rear-facing camera capable of 720p HD video capture, and a VGA front-facing camera. It will come with a rather small 1,450mAh battery and will offer dual SIM support, along with the usual WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS connectivity. The XOLO Q500 will also run on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. This is not the first time XOLO has deviated from Intel as the company had recently introduced the Q2000 last month, a device powered by MediaTek’s chipset. The Q500 is priced at around $130 but it is unclear if it will be making its way stateside anytime soon.
