Amoi launches new Amoi Neptune V5 low-cost Tegra 3 quad-core phone


More Chinese phone brands are launching super low-cost quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 equipped smartphones and the Amoi Neptune V5 is the latest to launch! More details and hands on video here!

It’s amazing just how fast the Chinese phone market is evolving in just a short amount of time! Just a few months ago we were all getting excited about MTK equipped dual-core phones such as the JiaYu G3, and now we are getting quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 phones showing up for not much more!

Yesterday we showed off the K-touch Hornet 2 which combines low-cost components and the powerful Nvidia Tegra 3 CPU to make an affordable Chinese phone with suprisingly good performance!

Before you head out and buy the K-touch Hornet 2 though take a look at the Amoi Neptune V5 which boasts the same Tegra 3 quad-core but with an updated 8 mega-pixel rear camera and Gorilla glass display!

Amoi have announced that their Amoi Neptune V5 phone, which will be branded as ‘Deovo’ here in China, will launch on the 11th October and will be priced at a similar price as the K-Touch Hornet 2 but with a slightly better specification!

The CPU in the Amoi Neptune V5 is a quad-core Tegra 3 unit clocked at 1.4Ghz which is helped along with 1GB RAM, plus 16GB of built in memory for apps, music and games.

Yesterday I made comparisons between the Hornet 2 and the HTC One X, however it looks like it’s more accurate to compare the Neptune V5 as it offers a 4.7 inch screen with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 2 and a rear 8 mega-pixel rear camera capable or 1080p video capture!

Other highlights included Android ICS 4.0 OS, a 1850mAh battery, LED flash, 2 mega-pixel front camera and a back illuminated f2.4 aperture!

Performance isn’t quite on par with the K-Touch Hornet 2 due to the slightly slower clock speed of the CPU but the Amoi is no slouch either and manages a Antutu score of 10319!

Overall for only $235 the Amoi Neptune V5 looks like a very well rounded phone and one which is certainly going on to my watch list!

    Hi Andi, for me it’s the first time I hear about Amoi. Is this brand like Jiayu, Xiaomi and other who sell through pre-sell and lottery and horrible ways like these ones? Or will this phone be available also to us international buyers?

    this confirm my teory, “jiayu g3 will be released when 4cores are available” then… a good one reason to let it go to jiayu g3.
    i was waiting for jiayu g3 but now i can wait a bit more for that! 🙂

    Hi Andi,

    first of all congratulations and thanks for the website, I’m loving it.
    I’m new into these chinese android phones, but some of them really look nice specially if you take in consideration the low price.

    My question is where could I buy Amoin Neptune V5 or K-Touch Hornet 2?
    I couldn’t find any on them on aliexpress.com

    thanks in advance
