Indian mobile phone brand Lava’s premium line XOLO today launched the XOLO Play T1000 for INR 15,999. The key headlining feature and the one in which we are most interested in is the inclusion of NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 chipset for graphics processing. This is the same chipset used in the Nexus 7, HTC One X and Microsoft Surface, all premium pieces of hardware.
The XOLO Play T1000 will run Android Jelly Bean. Here are the Key Specifications of the device:
- 1.5 GHz Tegra 3 quad-core mobile processor, with 12-core GeForce GPU
- Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
- NVIDIA TegraZone for gaming
- 4.7” HD IPS one-glass solution display
- Full HD 1080p video recording and playback
- 8MP rear auto focus camera with BSI sensor, 2MP front camera
- 1 GB RAM, 4GB built-in memory expandable up to 32GB
- 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0 and GPS/aGPS
- 1900mAh battery
Flaunting the Tegra GPU, the XOLO Play will come pre-loaded with TegraZone, NVIDIA’s marketplace for games that support Tegra. The TegraZone app is fully integrated with the Google Play store.
Running a 1.5 Ghz quad-core CPU, 4GB inbuilt memory and a 4.7″ IPS glass display, the XOLO Play T1000 is a steal for its INR 15,999 price tag. Similar variants from brands such as HTC, Nokia, Apple and Sony cost INR 30,000 and upwards.
This is the first time an Indian brand has partnered with companies of the likes of NVIDIA, and is a good sign for the country on the technological front.
“As the mobile market continues to grow strongly in India, we’re thrilled to work with XOLO to bring the first of many Tegra-powered devices in India,” said Vishal Dhupar, managing director, NVIDIA South Asia. “The XOLO Play T1000 with Tegra 3 delivers to mobile users in India a premium device at a price they will absolutely love!”
