Xolo has launched the Xolo One as the company’s latest budget-range smartphone added to its lineup of attractive priced smartphone. Dubbed Xolo One is not an Android One-powered handset, costs just a $105, making it one of the most affordable KitKat-running smartphone around.
Key point to be noted here is that, the company has commited to updating the Xolo One to Android 5.0 Lollipop later on, and making it one of the cheapest tickets to Google’s latest ride. However, the hardware of the smartphone isn’t quite as impressive. Take a look at it, below!
