Furthermore, the phone weights in just below 110g, which the company claims makes it the lightest smartphone in the market yet.

Xolo is a subsidy of Lava, a technology and mobile phone company based in India. In addition to making handsets for the Indian Market, Lava has various other segments under its banner, such as tablets, datacards and routers. As the India market is very price sensitive, Lava has had to produce an affordable range of phones. The Android based smartphones of the company are mainly released under two of its brands: Iris and Xolo.

Xolo came around when Lava tied up with Intel to release the Intel based smartphone, the Intel AZ510 in India. The phone was branded as Xolo X900. The brand endured and now handles Lava’s mid-range Android-based smartphones. The Xolo Q800 is one such hone that Lava has recently released into the market.
