The new phone comes with MediaTek’s MTK6589 quad-core Cortex A7 SoC CPU and a 4.7-inch standard LCD panel with 720p (720×1280-pixel) resolution. That panel is driven by the PowerVR SGX544 graphics engine inside the MediaTek chip but is most likely to be a TN screen.
Storage is fairly standard with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of on-board flash, but you can expand that with the MicroSD card slot, up to 32GB per card. The phone comes with Android 4.2.1 (Jelly Bean) preloaded and power is provided by a 2380mAh Lithium-ion battery, but unfortunately, there are no talk or standby details available.
Wireless connectivity again covers the basics with Bluetooth 2.0 and 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi to connect up to your home network. 2G coverage is available over the 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900MHz bands while 3G is covered over 850 / 2100MHz.
The phone comes with two cameras – a rear-facing 8MP sensor with flash and autofocus and for personal shots, you get a 2MP camera on the front. We don’t know the details about video capture but we suspect with the image sensor and CPU power on-board, it is likely to be 1080p @ 30fps but might be as little as 720p to suit the screen.
The phone is somewhat heavy for its size at 220 grams. The phone will soon be available in ‘Glacier’ white for a competitive $165 shortly from Geekbuying.com.
