XOLO’s Windows Phone to be the world’s lightest smartphone


The Times of India reports that Xolo’s coming affordable Windows Phone will be the lightest ever, weighing in at less than 100g (3.5 ounces).

The Samsung Galaxy S4 mini weighs in at 107 gram, followed by Apple iPhone 5S at 112 gram and HTC Desire 500 at 123 gram.

The handset by the Indian OEM is set to arrive in July and will be priced at 12,000 INR ($200).

Despite the light weight, the handset will sport a 4.7 inch screen and a Snapdragon 200 processor.

A Xolo spokesperson refused to confirm the leaked details, saying the company did not want to discuss its under-development phones or the launch road map. In an earlier statement however they said:

“We at Xolo believe that Windows OS has certain goodness to offer for a certain market segment and it will help Xolo reach a desired 15% share of the smartphone market by end of 2014.”
