Specifications – Haipai I9389 4.7-inch quad-core Android smartphone for under $150

i9389Chinese smartphone brand Haipai has launched a new entry-level quad-core model that’s selling at retail for under $US150.

Inside the Haipai I9389, there’s a 1.2GHz MediaTek MT6589 quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM to get things going. Given the price Haipai is able to sell this phone for, the MT6589 must continue to be one of the cheapest full-function phone SoC CPUs still available.

The 4.7-inch capacitive multi-touch panel delivers a reasonably basic 854×480-pixel resolution, which is driven by the PowerVR SGX544 graphics core inside that MediaTek chip and should be good enough to provide some decent gaming.

A 4GB cache of internal flash delivers your on-board storage, but you also get MicroSD, up to 32GB, to provide bulk space outside of the device. You get the latest version of Android 4.2.1 (Jelly Bean) to run your favourite apps and for power, a 2200mAh Lithium-ion-type battery. Unfortunately, we don’t have any standby or talk times for this unit yet.

Looking at on-board wireless options, personal connectivity comes by way of Bluetooth 3.0 and there’s Wi-Fi in the form of 802.11b/g available inside. Multi-network support over 2G is handled through the device’s 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900MHz band coverage while for 3G networks, the bands covered are 850 / 2100MHz.

The device delivers high-quality photos, thanks to its 8MP image sensor on the back and you get a simpler 2MP camera on the front.

The Haipai I9389 lands on the scales with a surprisingly light 120g and measures 137 x 71 x 9.5. Haipai announced this new model back in June 2013 and it’s available on line for under $US150 from a number of online retailers.
