Newman N1 Sells Out In Matter of Days!


Newman’s N1 is another of the latest breed of low-cost feature packed Chinese phones, but unlike the rest which fail to see light of are plagued by delays, the N1 has officially launched but is already out of stock!

It seems the problem is that Newman’s original batch launch for the Newman N1 consisted of only 3000 units, which were quickly bought by eager gadget lovers across China on July 31st when it first when on sale.

A second, much larger batch of 30,ooo Newman N1 phones was offered for preorder this past Friday with Newman forum members receiving priority for the N1, an 899 Yuan dual core Android phone.

Those who were lucky enough to pre-order the Newman N1 and have paid the 99 Yuan deposit should be receiving them by the middle of this week.

where to buy newman n1 dual core android phone

Newman N1 dual-core Chinese phone.

The Newman N1 hasn’t featured on Gizchina before, but it has been known to us and many others for a long time thanks to its excellent looking design, fantastic specification and super low price.

The N1 costs just 899 Yuan in China which is roughly $141 which is a stunning deal for such a handsome phone based on design alone, but when you take the specification in to account the Newman N1 looks even more of a bargain!

Featuring the same 1Ghz dual-core MTKMT6577 Dual-core CPU as similar priced phones such as the JiaYu G3, Beidou Little Pepper, JiaYu G2, Zopo ZP300 dual-core but has beaten each of them to the market, and may possibly have stolen customers from the other brands in the process!

Highlights include Android 4.0 ICS, a 4.3 inch display, 1GB RAM, 4GB ROM, a PowerVR SGX531 GPU, built in GPS and dual cameras, the rear an 8 mega-pixel unit while the font a 0.3 model.

What do you guy’s think of the Newman N1? Which dual-core MTK MT6577 phone would you buy if they were all available now?

    Unless the G3 is released very soon and cheaply I’m going to buy an iStar V12 the new updated model is powered by a MTK6577 processor and you can pay a bit extra and get one using an 8 mega pixel Sony camera. For under $200 is very cheap, and Star/iStar make decent quality phones.

    This is a really awesome phone with that kind of price you simply cannot argue against it… THough i would personally prefer Jiayu G3 coz of screen size and the front camera… heard G3’s rear camera has CMOS chip. But what the hell, N1 is meant for the youth market.

      I really like the Newman. In my opinion it looks much better than the JiaYu G3

    So, sorry for repeating my post in the last instance. But once again, May I ask where I could find this phone on sale? MeriMobiles sells it at $199.99 USD, but it is still Pre-Order.

    Andy plz suggest which phone is better JIYAYU 3 or NEWMAN N1 .

    • August 14, 2012

      I’ve not tried either and from a design point of view I think they are both awesome! I’ll try to secure review units soon

    Far much better test than that of Jiayu G3, simply because they show that the phone really works, not only that the screen resisted.
    And to the design – I like the Newman more. Really considering this phone, looks good, costs great…

    Can I ask one more question?
    Where can I buy this phone to be 100% sure it will arrive? I don’t know which chinese online shops I can trust and which sites are a possible scam.

      I bought mine from Pandawill.com. Arrived reasonably quickly, all good, working etc. Also I buy lots of stuff from AliExpress.com, they have a huge choice of shops, just check the shops rating before buying. And AliExpress holds your money in escrow (the seller doesn’t get paid until you confirmed receiving your item in a good working condition)

    I have gotten one today and I cannot get 3g signal from 850/1900 WCDMA bands, maybe there is one international version that has these frequencies and one Chinese (like mine) that does not have them.

        Hello Andy,

        I would like to buy a Newman n1 but I was not able to find answer on 3g data speed rate. It says WCDMA, but does this means that it will only trasnfer up to 384kbps or is it 3.5 compliant?

        Thanks a lot

        • October 24, 2012

          I’m not sure off the top of my head. You might also want to check the N1 will work on the networks in your country.
