Xolo Q520S smartphone offers a luxury design clubbed with unimpressive specs

The Xolo Q520S has been officially launched in India and it’s being touted as a premium release with an affordable price tag. The phone is available for Rs 5699 which is pretty cheap and it does have quite an attractive design, but at the cost of lower specs.

The Xolo Q520S is an entry-level release and uninspiring as it looks from the front, the rear has been given a brushed metallic finish. Of course, the phone is still made from plastic and it’s pretty bulky at 9.7mm. And just for the premium look, you’ll be sacrificing better hardware as most devices in the same category offer at least a 5-inch display with 1GB RAM.

The new Xolo phone, on the other hand, has just 512MB of RAM at its disposal and the screen size is 4 inches with WVGA resolution. The company has employed the usual 1.3GHz quad core MediaTek processor based on the Cortex A7 to do the heavy lifting. Also, you’d expect a premium phone of such to be treated to Lollipop, but it looks like Android 4.4 KitKat is what you’ll have to stick with for now.
