LAVA unveils the XOLO X1000 with 2GHz Intel CPU
About a week ago, we caught wind of a pending debut of the “fastest smartphone ever” to be released in India. That unveiling was on March 14th, and while it did make a bit of a splash in India, the rest of the tech world that day was gearing up for the Samsung Galaxy S 4 launch.

XOLO unleashed its successor to the X900, claiming it would be the fastest smartphone amongst the flagship smartphone segment and it would also be packing “Intel Inside.”

There was speculation that the new device would be one of the first to use Intel’s new Clover Trail+ Z2580 CPU, clocked at 2GHz, cutting through smooth running Android Jelly Bean with the help of a couple PowerVR SGX 544MP2 GPUs and maybe a 1080p display – none of that would materialize into reality unfortunately. Instead, what lies beneath a handsome looking form factor is Android ICS, a single-core Intel Atom Z240 running along at 2GHz.

The display is 4.7-inches, 720x1280 which makes for an acceptable 312ppi. For taking photos, you will find an 8MP main camera and a front facing 1.3MP for video chat. India does not have much by way of a 4G LTE network going, so the X1000 handles GSM and HSPA+ for data speeds up to 21Mbps. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS are all on board, as is 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage with microSD expansion.

So is it the “fastest smartphone ever?” Well, the processor has some tuning to it, augmented with Intel’s “Hyper Threading.” From a user experience, performance standpoint and the fact that the X1000 is running Ice Cream Sandwich, is this the speed demon to beat? We are thinking no. In fact, for folks that pay attention, the Motorola RAZR i has been running a similar 2GHz Intel CPU for months. Moreover, the ICS powered X1000 may prove to be a tough sell when XOLO has other devices already using Jelly Bean.

The XOLO X1000 is available now for ₹19,999 ($370) through Flipkart, on March 20th the X1000 will be available throughout Indian retail outlets.

Is the processor good? I don't really know about processor thing but the rest specs are pretty good. The design kinda looks like Nexus4 I think.

About 26000 - 27000 in Antutu, a little bit higher than 1.9 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S600.
And the Medfield processor in Razr i is the best in stand by time and 3G talk time (http://www.gsmarena.com/motorola_razr_i_xt890-review-828p2.php ) so this one is expected to be great also.

Sorry that I didn't read the article properly.
Only CloverTrail+ has that score, but this one is still single core Medfield

Mediatek and ICS, instead of Clovertail+ and Jellybean. The device has suicide written all over its face.

wait, since when is 312 ppi only "acceptable" ? 230 ppi is acceptable but 312 is much more than acceptable, to be able to see pixel on that density is almost impossible, unless it is pentile screen.

I completely agree with this. Manufacturers slap unnecessary 1080 displays on phones & all of a sudden, anything under a 400 ppi is just average. Most people wouldn't know the difference between a 720 & 1080 display on a phone anyway. They just claim that they would.

Well said. Most of the specs on these phones are overkill. As you correctly said, who'll know the difference. It's just gives them bragging rites.

Though its a good phone but here in India.not many ppl will buy this phone right now for rs.20000.
If the 720p tft lcd screen is of much better quality than canvas3 or other 720p screens
Out there..and if it had jellybean out of the box..and if the price would have been around rs.16000
It would sell like hot cakes.right now 20000 is not justifiable for buying a xolo and that
Too with just a single core medfield processor with ics in India

Outdated software, this phone is good for the junkyard.
