Music Phone Xolo Q700 Club launched for Rs 6899
The new Xolo Q700 Club has Dual Front Speakers with DTS(Digital Theater Systems) which supports multi-channel audio technology. The dual front speakers allow users to enjoy the boom sound while gaming, movies or watching videos on the smartphone.
The Loudspeaker is good for music but Xolo has not mentioned anything in a press release, about the earphones or in-ear music enhancement in this music phone.
Xolo Q700 Clubs – The Boom Speaker Sound Smartphone with DTS.
The smartphone is powered by MediaTek Quadcore Processor MT6582 clocked at 1.3 GHz. It has 2G/3G support for data connectivity. The smartphone has 1 GB Ram and 8 GB internal memory which can be expanded to 32 GB using an external memory Card. The phone has an IPS 4.5 inch screen with 854*480 resolution with 228 PPI and 256K colors.
Also, it has the much-needed dust and water protection, with IP55 protection standard. Xolo Q700 Club offers protection from dust particles and water splash.
Notably, It has resistance to water splashes but is not a fully waterproof phone.
The other specs for the Xolo Q700 club are standard which we are getting in other smartphones in the same price range, nothing earth-shattering.

In conclusion, the Xolo Q700 club has exactly same specs, what we saw on Xolo One which Xolo launched to compete with Android One smartphones.
The difference between the Xolo One and Xolo Q700 club is that it has an Auto Focus camera and 2000 mAH battery, but whether it will get the Android Lollipop update it is not clear. Xolo promised to give Xolo One buyers the Android Lollipop update.
In a nutshell, it is very similar to Xolo One with 2-3 additional features and priced slightly higher.
In comparison to the Android One (Micromax Canvas A1, Spice Dream Uno & Karbonn Sparkle V) mobile phones, Xolo Q700 Club packs higher battery capacity and internal memory of 8 GB, rest specs are mostly the same.
