Pioneer teaming up with Chinese appliance store Suning to offer quad-core MT6589 powered Pioneer S90w from next week.
As the Chinese phone martet takes off, more and more big brands are jumping on to the bandwagon with their own Mediatek powered low-cost offerings. The latest big brand to do so is Pioneer with the quad-core MT6589 Pioneer S90w which has been spotted ahead of launch!
Pricing of the Pioneer S90w is likely to be higher than similar spec Chinese branded phones, however with a big brand name and stylish narrow design it is still likely to attract a lot of attention.
As for the hardware, the S90w gets a 720HD 5-inch display, 1.2Ghz Quad-core MT6589 CPU, 1GB RAM, 8GB ROM, 8 mega-pixel rear camera, 2 mega-pixel front, 2000mAh battery and DOLBY sound.
Like the majority of MTK powered phones the Pioneer S90w will also offer dual-sim support and a micro SD card slot.[ Source ]
