XOLO, the premium smart devices brand from Lava International, has announced its new Omega smartphone variants through an exclusive twitter launch. The Omega comes in two variants. Omega 5.0 and Omega 5.5. Both have HC IPS screens, 1.4 GHz Octa-Core MTK6592M Processor and powered by XOLO’s proprietary HIVE platform. It comes with Quad-Core 600MHz Mali 450 GPU and 1 GB RAM. Our first impression is that the phone looks a bit like the Moto G and is very comfortable in the hand, thanks to its curved edges.
