It was a product launch with a difference. XOLO, the premium smart devices brand from Lava International, on Friday 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.
Omega is the second device to run XOLO’s HIVE OS that offers high degree of customisation for users as well as the opportunity to become part of the development process.
XOLO has also partnered with Vodafone, to offer Omega 5.0 users 500 MB free data and Omega 5.5 users 1 GB of free data, per month for two months. Plus, they also get access to unlimited music content from Vodafone Music for the same period. Omega 5.0 sports 8 MP rear camera with Sony Exmor R sensor and 2MP front camera. This version has 1 GB RAM and 8 GB internal memory, expandable upto 32 GB. Packed with 2,100 mAh battery, it is priced at Rs 8,999. Omega 5.5 comes with 13 MP rear camera with Sony Exmor RS sensor and a 2 MP front camera. With a 2,600 mAh battery, this one will be available at Rs 9,999. The Omega 5 will become available from December 10, while the larger version will sell from December 20.
