We reported last week that Newman are planning an updated quad-core phone, now today we receive further information along with rumoured specification details of the new quad-core Newman N2!
Newman are very new to the Chinese phone scene but have already wow’d a great number of local and international Chinese phone fans with the Newman N1, a 4.5 inch screen, dual-core MT6577 phone running Android 4.0 ICS, and it they look set to stun us again with the N2.
While we still have no idea what the quad-core Newman N2 will look like we have received details of it’s rumored specification and release date.
Gizchina News of the week
According to these reports, the Newman N2 will come equipped with a Samsung Exynos 4412 quad-core 1.5GHZ CPU, the same chip running the current Meizu MX 4-core and Samsung Galaxy S3, and will also feature a 400Mhz GPU, 1GB RAM and 8GB ROM.
Not only will the new Newman N2 quad-core be faster than the current MT6577 equipped N1 but it will be also larger thanks to its 4.7 inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720.
Actually scanning through the leaked details of the N2 and it all looks good and reads like the perfect low-cost Android Chinese phone! It has a 13 mega-pixel rear camera with a 2 mega-pixel front, a large 2500 mAh battery, and all the usual smart phone features such as GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth!
In fact the only part of the leaked Newman N2 which could be classed as bit of a disappointment is the fact that it has been listed with Android Ice-cream Sandwich rather than 4.1 JB.
According to the info we have gathered the Newman N2 will be launching next month and I expect prices to start around the 1999 Yuan ($313) mark.
