5.5-inch XOLO Q2000L with KitKat, Broadcom CPU launched in India

After launching the Q1011 last night, XOLO are back with another budget smartphone for India, this time a 5.5-incher.

The Q2000L again sits around the 10k INR mark, and succeeds the MediaTek powered Q2000 that was released last year. This time round, XOLO have gone for a Broadcom chip, perhaps because they’re better at software updates when compared to MediaTek.

With a clock frequency of 1.2GHz, the Broadcom chipset in question – BCM23550 – comes with 4x Cortex A7 cores much like the MediaTek MT6589. The 5.5-inch display panel houses a rather austere (by today’s standards) resolution of 960 x 540 pixels, which falls short of the 720p resolution seen on the Q1011. An FHD capable 8 mega-pixel shooter sits on the rear of the device, which is given company by a 2 mega-pixel front.

The remaining specifications of the device are pretty obvious, considering the 10,299 INR price tag the Q2000L bears – 1GB RAM, 8GB of expandable storage and a 2500mAh battery. However, XOLO have managed to get a KitKat build working for the device, which means it’ll be among the fewer KitKat powered devices out of the box in the 10k INR range.

    Battery, Battery, Battery, One wonders why do these companies have an inherent desire to keep the buyer tied to the Battery charger, putting a 3500 mAh battery would only have added $ 1 to the cost and made the phone more desirable by giving it a full day usage, especially in the battery eating Indian networks.

          i have a q2000 (5.5″ @ 720p resolution, 1GB ram , 8 GB, dualsim) with mediatek and battery of 2600mAH, easily lasts me a day with medium gaming and good call time.
          but i agree the display is crappy on this.
