Xolo has launched a Liverpool FC edition of its smartphone Xolo One. Priced at Rs.6,299, the limited edition device is targeted at the large number of football fans in the country. The device will be available exclusively on Snapdeal as a result of a partnership between the two.
A key difference between the earlier Xolo One and the limited edition one is that this one will run on Android 5.0 Lollipop out-of-the-box, whereas the Xolo One ran on Android 4.4.2 KitKat when it was launched.
When it comes to specifications, the smartphone will share the same features as the regular Xolo One. The addition is a premium leather back which carries the Liverpool logo, a depiction of Liverpool FC’s Liverbird. But that’s not all, as the smartphone will also have a back case and charger which are LFC branded.
The limited Liverpool FC Edition Xolo One sports a 4.5-inch FWVGA 480×854 pixels IPS display and is powered a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek processor with 1GB RAM. It features 8GB inbuilt storage which is expandable upto 32GB via microSD card, and runs on a 1,700mAH battery. It will also come with a 5MP rear camera with fixed-focus and LED flash and a 0.3MP front camera. When it comes to connectivity, the device will have Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, Micro-USB, GPRS/EDGE, GPS/ A-GPS and 3G.
