It will compete with Micromax Canvas Win W121 which was launched few days back. It comes with similar features but price of Xolo Win Q900s is higher than the price of Canvas Win W121. If we compare it with Lumia series smartphone, you will not get these features in any Lumia smartphones available. At this price you can only get Lumia 525 and Lumia 630. But on papers, both Lumia snartphones have low hardware specifications.
With the increasing low cost Windows Phone smartphones, Microsoft is aiming to get better Windows Phone market share in coming quarter.
