In a press conference in New Delhi, XOLO announced the launch of three budget smartphones. The three devices are aimed towards selfie-lovers with better imaging capabilities on the front camera than the rear camera and the inclusion of moonlight flash for low-light imaging.

The Indian handset maker has been missing in action since a while, and is making a comeback of sorts with the new range of devices.

Through our products we try to offer technology which is relevant, convenient and easy to use. The new Era series smartphones fulfill this objective by offering features which will satisfy our consumers’ growing need of capturing ‘great selfies’ and enhance their overall smartphone experience.

– Sunil Raina, Business Head, XOLO
