UPDATE: Banggood have decided to lower the price of the Pomp W89 to just $143.99! Chinese phone maker Pomp launches the quad-core Pomp W89 Internationally at just
For the first half of this year it was starting to look like only Chinese customers would be able to pick up a quad-core MT6589 phone at the ‘magic’ 1000 Yuan ($160) price point, but patience is a virtue and now international prices are dropping too!
The Pomp W89 was one of many MT6589 phones which can be bought for $169.99 or less. The phone sports a 1.2Ghz quad-core MT6589 processor, 1GB RAM, large 4.7-inch display, dual-sim support and Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean.
The low cost and larger than average display has meant that Pomp can only spec a 5 mega-pixel rear camera and 480 x 854 display, but this actually has the knock on effect of giving the phone better performance with Antutu benchmarks reaching over 14,000 points!
Another nice feature is that Pomp ship the phone with 2 x 2050mAh batteries and even a multi-lingual user manual, which is pretty rare for a Chinese Android smartphone!
