Dual-core AMOI N820 phone Nears Launch

If you are struggling over the decision which low-cost dual-core Chinese phone you should buy, I have bad news…. You decision just got a lot tougher thanks to the AMOI N820.

The AMOI N820 is an absolutely awesome phone and costs only $157 or if you are in China 999 Yuan. Sure, you might say that there are cheaper dual-core Chinese phones out there such as the Beidou Little Pepper, but the AMOI N820 has something which Beidou have been unable to get….. a launch date!

That’s right! While the $100 Beidou Little Pepper dual-core Chinese phone sits in the ether becoming a distant memory, the AMOI N820 is bursting in to Chinese stores with a blaze of orange fury in just 2 days (or 8th August if you read this tomorrow!).

Gizchina News of the week

The bright, loud orange exterior is a far cry some Chinese phones we have seen recently (Xiaomi M2… you bland phone you!) and is likely to appeal to the youth market much like the brightly coloured Xiaomi M1 Youth phones which were launched earlier this year.

Behind the bright exterior the AMOI handset gets a MediaTek MTK6577 dual core 1Ghz processor,  which is said to perform better than Qualcomm’s similar priced  MSM8225 ship. 1GB RAM helps things chug along while 4GB of built-in memory will allow for a few apps and can be used to store photos taken on the 5 mega-pixel rear camera.

If 4GB is not enough then the AMOI can accept a 32GB SD card giving you a full 36GB to fill with movies and games which you can enjoy on the rather large 4.5 inch IPS screen.

    I’ve found this phone almost ready for sale few days earlier, but without confirmed release date. I hasitate between this one and Jiayu G3. What do you think? Jiayu G3 should be released a week after which is not a difference. But the differences are as follows: 1. price( cheapest Jiayu G3 costs still at least $20 more); 2. resolution (Jiayu G3 has better 1280 x 720); and battery (Jiayu G3 has better 2750 mAh). Especially the battery is making a big advantage of the Jiayu G3. But I’m open to suggestions…

      As I see it the JiaYu is going to cost more than $200. All the online resellers I have seen advertising them don’t have any stock yet and a price hasn’t been confirmed. Perhaps wait until the middle of the month when both phones are out and see what people have to say about them?

    release date for Jiayu G3 is august 18 (usd 259). you can check it on aliexpert or antelife.
    AMOI N820 is interesting but has a price of usd 200.
    Kelzen commented some differences and I think that 59 are justified
    another advantage of Jiayu G3 is the gorilla glass, this make the different for me!
    i was owner of my zopo zp200 (sold this week) and I will migreate to jiayu or amoi 🙂
    however, both phones are excellent for the price.

      Why did you sell you Zopo? Did you try the Zp300? That’s a great phone. I have written up a post detailing all the Zopo phones here https://www.gizchina.com/2012/08/09/which-zopo-dual-sim-android-phone-buy-from-china/

        it was sold because i had the opportunity to renew my phone 🙂
        the only thing “bad” that I found on my (ex)zp200 was the wifi, for some reason the phone stop to communicate with the network and I had to disable and enable the wireless device every 15, 20 minutes of browsing. I suppose that it is a bug because the phone did the same with android 2.3 and 4.0 and with non-official roms.
        I had a motorola defy before my zopo zp200 and if you had a gorilla glass in your hand you will never want back to a normal glass 🙂
        zp300 it is a good option, but looking for similar or better product and cheaper my decision by now is Jiayu G3

          That’s a pretty ‘bad’ thing though! Could it not be fixed under warranty?
