Xolo goes on the aggressive with KitKat-powered Play 6X-1000 and Q500s IPS handsets

Targeting two different price categories in the Indian smartphone realm, Xolo has placed its faith on the new Play 6X-1000 and Q500s IPS devices which have been tagged at Rs 14499 and Rs 5999, respectively. Both these powerful handsets grab the Android KitKat OS which is fast overthrowing 4.2 Jelly Bean’s reign in the affordable phones segment.

The Xolo Play 6X-1000 is the beefier one among the two, featuring a 5-inch IPS display with an HD resolution of 720p. Aimed at the gaming audience, it comes pre-installed with the company’s Play Zone app which offers free and discounted Android titles. Its internals include a hexa core processor and 2GB of RAM.
