Quad-core Newman N2 pre-orders about to start

The Newman N2 has generated quite a buzz on the internet with some bloggers comparing this low cost Chinese phone to the Samsung Galaxy S3 and it’s easy to see why! But if you want to buy one of these quad-core phones you will have to be quick as pre-orders are about to begin!

Newman have set up a huge advert for the quad-core Newman N2 on their website with links to sign up in preparation to pre-order this fantastic quad-core phone. As you would expect the pre-order sign up page and details are in Chinese and the phones will only be shipped within China, however I assume many Chinese dropship and resellers will also be pre-ordering early stock too!

Gizchina News of the week

The Newman N2 is priced at 1499 Yuan ($240) which puts in on the same price terms as the fantastic Xiaomi M1s, however the spec of the N2 is more on par with the flagship Xiaomi M2!

A quad-core Samsung Exynos CPU clocked at 1.4GHz and 1GB RAM give the Newman N2 lightning fast speed while a 13 mega-pixel rear camera is expected to be capable of taking beautiful high-resolution photos. The N2 has a 4.7 inch screen and resolution of 1280 x 720, comes equipped with a 2500mAh battery and will run Android 4.0 ICS as standard.

    Give me a good reason why someone would buy this for $240 when Nexus 4 unlocked is available for $299 on Play store.

      You don’t need a contract and it has a memory card slot.

        $299 is unlocked price so no contract if m not wrong. the only downside would be no memory card slot though. But when you buy an electronic product we have to think about the aftersales service or support. and most important thing is also OS update. How fast a model will recieve OS updates, in this case Nexus 4 will be the first to recieve;(just saying)

    how about the camera 13MP ??? doesn’t it make ur decision to buy newman a lot easier ?
    moreover, battery backup of 2500mAh & 4.7 inch screen…
    build quality is good & the feel of this phone is very good for that price…
    got the same CPU…. so no worries…
    the cheaper the better- in case of mobile phones… because u know, after 6 months, a new technology will come which u cant resist to go by simply out of your hand just because u have nexus 4…. !!! then what will you do ?
    the money what u save now by purchasing newman N2 , can be used for buying that next newer technology phone ??? ( i mean half of the money is with u & the rest u can arrange for it easily ? )
    what if u lose nexus ? i mean if ur newman is lost, u wont feel bad much… but i will definitely get upset if my nexus 4 gets stolen…

    these r my ways of thinking before buying a new mobile phone… just shared my views… sorry for my english… was typing very fast. hence apologies for my typos also….thought i would pen down all the points which i was thinking about when u asked this question….

    any other points which many users may feel to contribute….pls feel free to jolt it down here….

    @Andi: can u pls give a proper link where we can understand how to go ahead & place an order ? i mean pre-order ? in the above link, it says it is for VIP & F code members & it requires your registration also…
    didnt find a sigle link on their website to place an order…

    help us Andi pls…
