Lightweight Windows Phone 8.1 handset announced by Xolo; phone due out in India next month
If your hands get tired from holding on to your heavy smartphone, you might be interested in a new model introduced on Saturday by Indian smartphone manufacturer Lava. The Xolo WIN Q900s, a smartphone that is powered by Windows Phone 8.1, weighs just 100g. In comparison, the Apple iPhone 5s weighs in at 112g, the Samsung Galaxy S5 tips the scales at 145g, and the HTC One (M8) is 160g.

The Xolo WIN Q900s comes with a 4.7 inch screen offering up a resolution of 720 x 1280. A 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 CPU powers the phone, which features 1GB of RAM and 8GB of native storage. Need more storage? A microSD slot will provide you with additional memory. The model supports dual SIM cards and the camera on the back is 8MP with an LED flash. A 2MP snapper graces the front of the handset.

The phone was available to be pre-ordered from Snapdeal.com for 9999 Rupees ($166 USD). However, the 5000 units allocated for the pre-order have been sold out, and the next time the phone can be purchased from the site, the price will rise to 11,999 Rupees ($200 USD). The phone is expected to launch during the second week of July.
