Regular Phones Review readers may remember that last month we reported on the Xolo Black smartphone. Black is a sub-brand of the well-known Indian manufacturer and these devices will be sold exclusively through Flipkart online. At that point we showed a brief official video teaser for the upcoming phone, but we now have the Xolo Black price and buying details from the launch. We also have information on specs and more.
There has been a lot of interest in the Xolo Black, with many waiting for the official launch. Previously the company said that this smartphone would release with a price less than Rs. 15,000 so we’re pleased to tell you that the confirmed Xolo Black price is Rs. 12,999.
