Chinese start up phone maker Orgtec, have finally announced the full specifications and pricing for their all new 64bit WaPhone smartphone.

The WaPhone is a device that has cropped up in numerous leaks over the past few months, and now the phone has finally been announced with official specifications and pricing for the Chinese market.

In China the WaPhone is currently available for booking via online sale only, this is a method which has helped plenty of smartphone makers cuts costs, and judging by the hardware on the WaPhone it is paying off for this device too.

Starting on the front, the phone packs a 5.5-inch FHD (1920 x 1080) display with a pixel density of 400ppi and laminated glass from AGC. If the rest of the specs were nothing but average from this point on the WaPhone would still be an interesting buy, but luckily hardware continues to impress!

Inside there is a new octacore Mediatek processor with 64bit architecture. As you will have guessed this is the 1.7Ghz MT6752 with Mali T760 GPU, a chipset that Mediatek hope to take on the Snapdragon 615 with, but in a phone costing only $145! To support the processor there is 2GB DDR3 RAM, 16GB internal memory, room for a 32GB SD card and Android 4.4.4 Kitkat.

The MT6752 is the chip many of us are looking out for as it also supports a wide range of data connection options such as 4G TD-LTE, 4G FDD-LTE, 2G GSM, 3G WCDMA, WIFI 802.11 b/g/n/a/ac, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS, GLONASS and BeiDou navigation. And yes it is dual SIM too.

Cameras are about what we expect from a high-class phone with an 8 mega-pixel selfie snapper up front, and Sony doing the duties on the rear with a 13 mega-pixel IMX135 sensor with F2.0 aperture.

waphone chassis

The 153 x 76.5 x 8.9mm phone gets an alloy chassis and has a 2650mAh battery inside too.

From a design standpoint its easy to tell where Orgtec got the inspiration from the WaPhone. The overall design is what a Oppo Find 7 would look like if it had the corners rounded out a little more, and the navigation buttons along the chip appear to be from Meizu phones old and new.

Still even with the familiar look, specifications of this level are quite shocking from a phone so well priced and we are sure to see plenty of Chinese phone fans looking to get their hands on one once resellers start to offer them.

What do you make of the Waphone? Let us know in the comments below!

    I want one, for a reasonable price, and a promise of a lolipop 😀

  • jezter

    where do I buy one? The orgtec website is chinese only and rather confusing.

  • Mesterio

    i suppose bubble gums will do until we get our mitts on Lollipop 🙂

  • As long as its manufacturer isn’t the same as Doogee crap I’m fine.

    My DG550 is the biggest pile the merde I’ve purchased from China.

    Even the 15USD mini feature phone that my GF purchased a few years ago had better overall feeling than my crappy bending Doogee.

    At least this unexpected feature has given it enough flexibility to cope with a couple of 3metres crash with minor scuffes and not a single scratch in the screen…

    The back of this phone reminds me too much to my DG550… will it bend?

    • Muhammad Yasir

      what was EXACTLY , the problem with the doogee phone?
      can u elaborate in easy words please?

      • First.

        Its specs and design claim FAKE on all four corners. 6mm, stereo speakers, etc…

        Second.

        Technically the screen has a huge disfunctionality with the chassis stepping 1mm out of the bezel in the right down corner. Once inside the pocket it bent and the screen popped out from the bezel in the middle zone both sides. Pushed it back without any difficulty…

        Flexibility is actually good for crashes, helping dissipate energy and avoiding extra torsional forces to the screen.

        • Muhammad Yasir

          well ,that sucks 🙁 , sorry for your inconvenience…

          it looks like u have ordered from chinese webshops , so can u guide me what i should do to avoid these phone with FAKE specs??
          i have never ordered from a webshop before… so any things i shud beware of?

  • Well, I don’t find it very attractive… A new start up should come up with something more extra ordinary, but another casual look.

  • Freeje

    Hope you don’t go “Wa, wa, wa!” after buying this phone.

    • Muhammad Yasir

      why so???

  • Not a bad looking phone I have to say and the hardware too it’s impressive. Will be good for a secondary phone.

  • Simion Florin

    Fuck me, all is good until the battery. I don’t understand why they don’t put at least 3000 mAh battery in an 5.5 inch body?!

    • Marco Lancaster

      For that reason Jiayu s3 still being the best option, 3000mAh battery, and being removable you still can buy another and have a lot of juice.

      • Nahúm Pérez Mesa

        And don’t forget the Kolina k100+ 😉

        • Marco Lancaster

          Kokina K100 is very good, but for me has arrived too late. Why I pay the same price of the new 64Bits, on a phone who lacks LTE? But again, just in my opinion, for my personal use. Btw still being a good device, anyway I won’t recommend it now.

          • Damien Xenos

            None of these Chinese phones utilizes a 64bit OS i.e. Lollipop and never will given lack of updates by Chinese manufacturers so what is the difference.

  • roni24

    how is the GPS and why not dual Leds

  • saor

    Does it come with ota or any support?

  • Steve B

    Shame it has imx135 rather than imx214.

  • Guest

  • Lucas Maximilian

  • Riccardo Benzoni

    it was almost a perfect candidate to step inside mt6752, but battery is not simply enough for a 5.5 full-hd 4g phone!
