Xolo tightens security on new Q2100 by adding a fingerprint sensor

Xolo has launched a new mid-range phablet for the Indian market under the Q2100 moniker and it plans to make the device available at Rs 13499. What sets this phone apart from the competition in the same price range is that it comes with a fingerprint sensor pre-loaded to lock your device and its contents.

Well, Xolo isn’t the first Indian OEM to deliver a handset with a fingerprint reader onboard. The Rs 13999 iberry Auxus Note 5.5 has earned that title, while the Swipe Sense is the cheapest in this category costing just Rs 9999. The Xolo Q2100 makes a fairly good bargain at the aforementioned price. You get an attractive looking phone with many alluring features.
