XOLO's new Windows Phone is truly the lightest smartphone of them all

We often see manufacturers boast how they have been able to make the “world’s lightest” smartphone and now Indian manufacturer XOLO is claiming that crown. XOLO was due to launch a new Windows Phone handset. It has come out with the Win Q900s, its first ever Windows Phone device. It weighs in at just 100g, so XOLO is quick to point out that this is “clearly the lightest smartphone” available in the market at this point in time. To be fair that claim isn’t false. For example the iPhone 5s comes in at 112g, even the Galaxy S4 mini is a tad bit heavier at 107g. But then again most customers don’t bother themselves with such minute details, its the specifications and performance that they’re more concerned about.

As previously rumored, India-based smartphone maker Lava has officially announced their new Windows Phone 8.1 device, the Xolo WIN Q900s, which weighs just 100g. Pre-orders have begun for a launch in the second week of July. The weight of the WIN Q900s is certainly the big selling point for this phone. At 100g, this makes it the lightest Windows Phone product to be released, at least so far. Even with its small weight, the WIN Q900s has a decent sized 4.7 inch display with a 1280×720 resolution. Inside there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor with a clock speed of 1.2 GHz, along with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, with a microSD card slot for expansion. It also has an 8 megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a front facing 2 megapixel camera. It also supports two SIM cards. Snapdeal.com was the only place anyone could have pre-ordered the Xolo WIN Q900s, for the price of Rs. 9999 (about $166). However, it appears that Snapdeal has already sold out of its units just a few hours after its pre-order page went live. When the phone comes up for sale again, the price will be going up to Rs 11,999. What do you think of Lava entering the Windows Phone race with its new Xolo WIN Q900s device that has its light weight as its biggest bullet point feature?
