It’s beginning to look like the cheap dual-core Chinese phone has had its day and is already being replaced with low-cost quad-core models with chips from Qualcomm, Nvidia, Samsung and MTK. The Newman N2 quad-core takes the Samsung route and is one of the next to launch and will go on sale in the middle of next month!
Priced at between 1400-1500 Yuan () the quad-core Newman N2 has a lot of competition from phones such as the Xiaomi M2, the ZTE U950 (Beidou Little Pepper), Huawei Honor 2, Deovo V5 and even the Google Nexus 4 from LG!
The Newman N2 will be available from mid November and will come equipped with a quad-core Samsung Exynos 4412 1.4Ghz CPU which is capable of propelling the low-cost 4-core phone to AnTuTu scores of way over 12000!
A 13 mega-pixel rear camera should impress Instagram fans and the large 1280 x 720 resolution 4.7-inch IPS screen with Gorilla Glass coating should prove good enough to view the photos you manage to capture.
Other details include a 2500mAh battery, 3 mega-pixel front camera and Android 4.0 Ice-cream Sandwich as standard.
