The quad-core Newman N2 is rumoured to be launching as early as next week (30th October) and as such more photos and specification details are being released, all of which is pointing to a very promising quad-core Chinese phone!
As we already know the latest Newman phone will sport a quad-core Samsung Exynos 4412 chip running at an energy-efficient 1.4 GHZ, 2GB RAM, 4.7 inch display and a 13 mega-pixel rear camera with LED flash.
Today we have a few more details which further shine light on the Newman N2, mainly about the phone’s design and the rear camera.
The design of the Newman N2, which can be seen in the photos here, is a rather attractive one with a two-core black/silver decoration running around the sides of the phone. Also along the sides are the volume buttons, power button and a dedicated shutter button for the rear camera.
Gizchina News of the week
From the rear the Newman N2 wears a removal rear case in black with the 13 mega-pixel camera raised away from the body, enabling Newman’s designs to make a thin phone but with high-end camera.
The front of the Newman N2 is dominated by that large 4.7 inch IPS display which has a resolution of 1280 x 720.
As 13 mega-pixel Chinese phones are just beginning to arrive on the market some are wondering if these new units will offer better performance over the current crop of 8 mega-pixel cameras? Well we can’t tell until we get our hands on the N2 to test, however is the F2.2 aperature is anything to go by then we could be in for a treat.
As you would expect the Newman N2 comes with Android 4.0 ICS as standard, Wifi, GPS, and Bluetooth along with s 3.5mm head phone jack.
Price are expected to be around 1999 Yuan but we will know for sure closer to the launch date (hopefully next week)
1.Screen resolution and ppi?
Does it has gorilla glass?
No mention of it
Quad core phone with camera shutter button? Lovin’ the initial specs! Is it dual sim?
I don’t imagine it will, but I could be wrong.
I told you that I had bought a ‘trial’, ‘6 inch’ smartphone, ‘noname’, device from Chinavasion recently. I paid for it late on Thursday Oct.18th (London Time).
Then … I tracked it by the hour with DHL’s Tracker system until it arrived exactly as predicted on Monday 22nd at 11.00 am.
On arrival I simply removed the SIM and SD cards from my trusty, 2 yr old, Android 2.2.2, Dell Streak 5 and installed them in the new device.
In !0 minutes I was up and running.
I chose to speak with Orange’s tech Support … and the ‘noname’ issue caused a ‘flurry’ of trouble; but we appeared to resolve that with the device’s IMEI number. So ‘standards’ appear to have been met.
I’ve subsequently discovered that the device was probably manufactured in the Dapeng Tower in Shenzen; since I’ve seen another device, almost identical to it named as a ‘Dapeng XYZ’.
My device came with 2 large batteries; which have charged very well, and it’s sitting on my desk working like a dream !
When I’ve sorted out a range of accessories, like a Bluetooth keyboard/carrying wallet, screen protectors … and a SIM card deal with a well known network; … and after I’ve decided on what FREE software to recommend to my clients … which they might like to install from Google Play … I should be able to re-sell it, and deliver it to my website readers for well under £200.00.
Watch this space !
Would you care to comment on the sources – and the possible pedigree of the product etc, etc. ?
Interesting what specs does it have, where did you order it, how much is it?
By the way …
I think I’ll call it the “70+ 6 inch Pocketable” ….grin !
Oh yeah! cheap quad core just in time for the holiday season! I can’t wait.
phone looks awesome. anyone know the odds of getting it to work on AT&T 3g data? If Im trading in my iphone 4s for this one.
