K-Touch Joins the low-cost Quad-core War

K-touch are planning to take on the like of Meizu, Xiaomi and larger brands such as HTC with their all new Hornet II quad-core phone.

The Chinese Android phone makers K-touch have really upped their game over the past few years and their first quad-core device really shows that they are aiming for higher ground with the Hornet II as it comes packed with highend features combined with a great design.

If you think the Hornet II looks similar to the K-touch Treasure  V8 it is because it is the same phone, but the Chinese phone company made the right decision by renaming the phone.

Design wise we can see hints of iPhone 4s, Oppo Finder and even a touch of Samsung thrown in which makes for a unique if not outstanding or overly sexy design.  To keep the Hornet II scratch free K-Touch have specified Gorilla Glass both on the Sharp sourced 4.5 inch screen and the rear of the phone.

Under the tough exterior a Nvidia Tegra 3 Quad-core CPU clocked at 1.5ghz hums away with a rumored 1ghz of RAM helping ease the strain of any graphic intense workouts you plan to put the K-Touch Hornet II through.

The rest of the specification hasn’t been made none just yet other than this Chinese phone will likely run Android 4.0 ICS on launch day and the rear 8 mega-pixel camera is capable of capturig 1080p HD video.

As mentioned K-Touch are aiming the Quad-core Hornet II square at similar Chinese phones such as the soon to be released Xiaomi M2 and current top of the range Meizu MX 4-core and as such will be priced at around 3000 Yuan ($484).

    Are these phones meant to be low budget or what?

    Maybe I see low budget as below $200.
