In the last month, we have seen smartphones appearing online right before they are launched by the company. The latest device to follow this pattern is the Xolo Q300, a new 5.7-inch phablet that was spotted at an e-tailer.  The Xolo Q3000 now appears on Flipkart with a “coming soon” tag. There is no word on the pricing or availability of the device, so far. 

The online store lists it as a dual-SIM (GSM+GSM) smartphone sporting a massive 5.7-inch full HD 1080p IPS display. It runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and is powered by a quad-core 1.5GHz MediaTek MT6589T processor coupled with a healthy 2GB of RAM.

On connectivity front, the device supports 3G, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi hotspot, Micro-USB, USB OTG, MHL and Bluetooth 4.0, so it's quite well-outfitted in that department. It comes with 16GB onboard storage, which can be expanded up to 32GB via microSD. As is becoming a norm nowadays, it gets a 13-megapixel rear snapper along with a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, that should deliver clear self-portraits. In addition, Xolo will be pre-loading its own security and software update apps.

Here’s a quick look at some of its key specifications:

  • 5.7-inch full HD 1080 x 1920 IPS display
  • Dual SIM, 3G, Wi-Fi
  • GPS with A-GPS, Bluetooth 4.0
  • 13-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera
  • 16GB onboard storage, expandable via microSD card slot

The smartphone is fuelled by a gigantic 4000mAh battery that promises up to 33 hours of talktime on 2G and 21 hours of talktime on 3G. This is one of the largest battery packs we have seen in a phone. Xolo will also bundle a free flipcover and USB OTG cable along with the phone.
