Chinese phone brand Meox have long been rumored to be launching a larger 5.3 inch phone, but it’s only now that we have details and specifications of the new phone.
A 5.3 inch 960 x 540 screen with curved glass gives the its “Arc” name, and is thought to have a scratch resistant coating similar to Corning’s Gorilla Glass. The rest of the specification reads much like many of the current crop of Chinese phones, meaning 1GB RAM, 0.3MP front camera, 8 mega-pixel rear camera and Android 4.0 OS.

Since the Arc X-5 uses the MT6577 CPU we can make an educated guess that dual-sim support will be offered, which should fit nicely inside the 10.5mm thick body along with an SD card reader and 2700mAh battery.
