Smartphone maker XOLO has launched a smartphone weighing only 100g.

Despite weighing roughly the same as a large packet of crisps, the Indian manufacturer’s Win Q900S model packs in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM and an Adreno 302 graphics chip, as well as 8GB of storage capacity and two cameras – front and rear.

The handset runs on the Windows phone platform, and has a 4.7-inch 1280×720 IPS LCD display with scratch-proof Dragontrail glass.

HSPA+, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity is also included, powered by an 1800mAh battery, which takes roughly two and a half hours to charge, according to XOLO.

In way of comparison with the Q900S’ lightweight crown, Apple’s iPhone 5S tips the scales at 112g and Samsung’s Galaxy S4 Mini weighs a smidge heavier at 107g.

The XOLO Win Q900S is set to ship in the second week of July in India for approximately £117.

Global availability is yet to be confirmed.
