XOLO launches its smartphones and tablets in the Middle East

XOLO, a smart devices brand from India, today announced its foray in to the Middle East with its range of premium smart devices. The company has appointed Jumbo Electronics as its exclusive distributor in the region. Jumbo will manage distribution across all channels in the UAE, Oman, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar and Iraq markets.

XOLO has been at the forefront of mobile technology since its inception, and has joined hands with various industry leaders such as Intel, NVIDIA, AMD and Qualcomm amongst others, in order to provide differentiated technology to today’s highly discerning consumers.

XOLO will offer a wide variety of smart devices that range from smartphones offering a console-like gaming experience to those with extraordinary photography and multimedia capabilities, taking the smartphone experience to ‘The Next Level’ as is the brand’s promise.

“Our expansion in to the Middle East region reinforces the trust and confidence that consumers in India have placed in our brand in a short time period,” said Vishal Sehgal, Co-founder & Director of LAVA International Ltd., XOLO’s parent company. “Our growth in India is attributed to the relentless effort of creating superior experiences for consumers who seek more from their devices, and we believe that we will be able to replicate the growth in this region as well. We have embarked on an ambitious journey of becoming the first global consumer brand from India. With this objective, we are investing heavily in product development and marketing, and are aiming to become a USD 1bn company by the end of FY14-15.
