Xolo B700 Launched, Good Specs At a Budget Price

Xolo is getting to focus on its B series of smartphones for the first time, the battery could have an interesting tale to tell.


Xolo recently launched the first smartphone in its B series with the model number Xolo B700, available online at a price of Rs 9000. This device returns to the ARM architecture familiar to most smartphones, and operates on a (presumably) low-cost MediaTek SoC.

It is normal in most respects, except for the choice of the older Android 4.0 OS, the higher-than-usual screen resolution and most interesting of all, a battery capacity that claims to be unusually high.

Here are the tech specs of the Xolo B700:

  • 4.3" IPS display (960x540 pixel resolution)
  • 1GHz dual-core processor (MT6577 chipset)
  • PowerVR SGX531 GPU
  • 512 MB of RAM
  • 4GB internal memory
  • microSD card slot for expandability upto 32GB
  • 5MP rear camera, VGA front camera
  • USB, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi connectivity
  • Android 4.0.4 ICS operating system
  • 3450 mAh battery

Xolo shot into the limelight with its Intel processor driven smartphones. Most notable among these are the Xolo X900 which is credited as India's first "Intel-driven" smartphone. Earlier this month, Xolo had launched the X1000 with a lot of media hype. The company even put up a banner with the title "Mission X coming soon". Xolo X1000 runs on a 2GHz Intel Atom Processor (Z2480) with Hyper Threading Technology.
