Affordable high end devices seems to be the order of the day. After the phenominal success of affordable and yet high end hardware like the Oneplus, Nexus and Moto lineups, there seems to be yet another new entrant in the field. Its called Xodiom and if claims to offer the cream of the best hardware in all the high end flagship devices this year and probably what we will see in the Q1 next year. The company is unknown and there is very little information available about them. But if it is true, the device they are offering would be a dream device to own.
The Xodiom will be available in one color; black and two memory variants; 16 GB and 64 GB. It runs on Android 5 based OS and powered by Snapdragon 805 quad core processor. It has a 3 GB of RAM and almost all possible sensors we have seen in mobile devices so far. It is a 5.5 inch phablet and has 3200 mAh battery. It supports a wide range of network bands.

You don’t need any invite or there is no flash sales to buy this. They do ship internationally and after sales support is pretty much unknown at this stage. The xodiom is priced at $329 for the 32GB version and $379 for the 64GB version. But they accept only wiretransfers or bitcoins as payment options. Though I would recommend buying this device immediately, it is definitely an interesting phone to look at. This is a sign that 2015 is going to be a very interesting year for us.
