Xolo’s One smartphone recently had the Android Lollipop update, and the company has been quite active for the OS version updates or at least including the latest version in the newer smartphones. To go on with that, the Xolo Cube 5.0 is launched in the Indian market, and it comes with Android Lollipop OS.
This phone will be available in black, white, and gold shades and will be available on the retail stores as well as on online stores, for the price of Rs. 7999. It is no exceptional with the specs, and it gets the processing power from Mediatek MT6582M processor, Mali 400 GPU and 1GB of RAM. For that price, it isn’t a great inclusion as some competitive devices offer better specs in the similar price range.
Similar spec’d device is the Oppo Neo 5 2015, that has similar processor and RAM, though it is a smaller phone, and has a FWVGA resolution. The Xolo Cube 5.0 offers a HD resolution for the 5-inch display. The Cube 5.0 offers 8GB internal storage, and a MicroSD card slot for storage expansion. There is a 8-megapixel camera on the back, and a 2-megapixel camera on the front. LED flash assists the rear camera.
It is a Dual SIM device, and sadly doesn’t offer 4G connectivity, though there is 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and other options. A 2100 mAh battery is packed into the phone. This isn’t the only Lollipop-version running Android device from Xolo, as the company recently released the Xolo Prime running the latest OS version, and priced lesser than the Cube 5.0, even offering a glass back panel.
The Xolo Cube 5.0 goes on sale from today. An alternative for this, from the same brand, is the Xolo Omega 5.0 with an octa-core processor and an HD display.
