XOLO Mission "X" En Route March 14 Launch

Indian smartphone maker XOLO of the X900 fame is doing the unthinkable (or at least foolish), by planning to launch its flagship device for 2013 on exactly the same day as Galaxy S 4, March 14. The device will be launched at an evening beach party on the balmy shores of Goa. Referred to as "Mission X," the device sticks to its X900 roots, being based on Intel's mobile Atom processor platform.

Multiple sources state that the phone could be driven by the same innards as Lenovo's K900 - Atom Z2580 dual-core/quad-thread SoC clocked at 2.00 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, and PowerVR SGX544 GPU. According to specs tweeted by the company, we're looking at features such as a 1080p IPS LCD screen with 312 ppi pixel density, a 2.5D curved glass surface, and a camera capable of 1080p recording. In all likelihood, this could be a 13-megapixel BSI CMOS shooter made by Sony.

We'll make sure the Galaxy S4 doesn't distract us enough.
