The ‘Fastest Smartphone Ever with Intel Inside’ coming on March 14, right on Galaxy S4 event day

Xolo is hosting its own media event on March 14, the Galaxy S4 announcement day, to unveil the "fastest smartphone ever with Intel Inside."

We have just a few days to go until Samsung unveils its 2013 flagship handset at a special media event in New York, but the Galaxy S4 is not the only new Android smartphone that’s going to be announced that day.

Xolo has decided it’s worth trying to steal the show from Samsung on March 14 with a media event of its own during which it will unveil the “fastest smartphone ever, with Intel Inside.”

Xolo’s event will take place in Goa, India at 4PM (presumably local time,) which means the new Xolo handset will be unveiled well ahead of the Galaxy S4. But while the device may indeed be the fastest smartphone ever with Intel Inside, it will surely not be able to steal the buzz from the Galaxy S4 this week. But will it be faster than the Galaxy S4?

Recent leaks showing benchmarks for Samsung’s fourth-gen Galaxy S model revealed that the smartphone will offer an overall improved performance compared to the competition. While we will point out the fact that the benchmarks have not been officially confirmed yet, the Galaxy S4 will probably be one of the fastest smartphones out there, if not the fastest one, at least for a few months, until something better comes along.


Obviously, we’re looking forward to see official benchmarks for a variety of upcoming Android handsets, including the Galaxy S4 and Xolo’s new Intel-based smartphone, and we’re certainly interested to see how Intel’s new mobile processors perform in the wild. But we’ll be back with that information as soon as testing these devices is possible.

Anyone looking forward to buy new Xolo smartphones this year or are you going to get the Galaxy S4 instead?
