The India-based Lava Mobiles gained worldwide attention when they released the first Intel Medfield-based Android smartphone, the Lava Xolo X900, back in April. The company is now back with its latest Android offering, the Xolo A800.

Despite the name, the Lava Xolo A800 doesn’t come with an Intel CPU inside, as it takes the ARM route instead. Powering the phone is a 1GHz MediaTEK MT6577 dual-core processor.

The Xolo A800 boasts a 4.5-inch IPS display with 960 x 540 resolution and comes with features like an 8MP main camera, VGA front-facing camera, 12GB internal storage, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box. Completing the specs are the two available SIM card slots that offer 2G and 3G connectivity.

There’s currently no plan to market the Lava Xolo A800 outside India. If you like what you see of the phone, you should be able to find it in stores in the country for 11,999 rupees, which translates to about $220.

How about it – do you think the A800 is a worthy phone to add to your Android collection?
