Xolo has launched a feature rich smartphone in the budget segment. The handset, named as Xolo 8X 1000i, was found listed on the company’s website for Rs 6,999. The Xolo 8X 1000i is armed with the 1.4 GHz Mediatek MT6592M octa core processor and huge 2 GB RAM.

The Xolo 8X 1000i strangely comes with the Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system despite being a new phone. The smartphone has an 8 megapixel rear camera with Exmor R sensor. There is an LED flash light in the back panel as well. The auto focus rear camera has HDR, geotagging, panorama features and can record full HD videos too. For selfies, the handset offers a 2 megapixel front camera.
