Philips re-enters mobile phone market in India with Xenium technology

Shenzhen Sang Fei Consumer Communications Co. Ltd., which now manages the Philips branded mobile phone range, has announced the launch of the Xenium range of mobiles in India. The new phones mark the re-entry of the Philips brand name in the mobile phone market in India after a gap of almost a decade.


The Xenium technology is designed to allow phones to remain on standby mode with “near zero” battery consumption, enhancing the battery backup time available to the user. All phones in the Xenium range are dual-SIM ones, and boast of extra long battery life and stand-by time.

Xenium X806: A 3.0-inch touchscreen, 5MP camera, microSD up to 8GB and a quoted talk time of 8 hours and stand-by time of 1 month. This one is priced at Rs. 8,280.


Xenium X518: A 2.8-inch touchscreen, 2MP camera, microSD up to 16GB and a quoted talk time of 12 hours and stand-by time of 40 days. The X518 is priced at Rs. 5,976.

Xenium X523: This one is a non-touchscreen version with a 3.2MP camera, expandable memory up to 32GB and a quoted talk time of 16 hours and stand-by time of 50 days. The device is priced at Rs. 4,992.

Xenium X513: This is the green phone in this range, and is priced at Rs. 4,776. The 2000mAh battery offers a talk time of 16 hours and a stand-by time of 80 hours. External memory can be expanded up to 16GB.

There are two budget phones as well - the X116 and the X121. The X116 is priced at Rs. 2,760 and the X121 is priced at Rs. 1,776. Both phones come with built-in LED torch, expandable memory up to 4GB, FM Radio and MP3 playback capabilities.

Interestingly, a bunch of Android smartphones will also be added to the Philips mobile phone range sometime next month. We await the etails on those, and will keep you posted.
