Lava International has expanded its smartphone range under the Xolo brand with the launch of Xolo 8X-1000. The smartphone runs on Android 4.4 KitKat with Xolo's new HIVE UI, which is internally developed by Lava International.

The company aims to increase its market share to 10% from 6% at present, according to Rai  co-founder of Lava International. The Xolo 8X-1000 is powered by a 1.4GHz MediaTek MT6592M octa-core processor and boasts 2GB of RAM. It comes with 16GB internal storage expandable up to 32GB via a micro SD card. With a 5-inch 720p Asahi Dragontrail glass panel display. It also features a glass back with Gorilla Glass 3 protection.

The device will be available starting in September through resellers and dealers and priced at Rs 13,999. The new Hive features customised UI elements including themes, a new launcher, widgets, customised system apps that offer additional features and the ability to connect with Xolo's software development team to offer feedback. In a recent interaction with the Economic Times, SN Rai, said that the Hive platform will come initially with high-end Xolo devices and at a later stage with mid- and low-end Xolo and Lava smartphones.
