K-Touch looking to upstage ZTE with low-cost 5-inch phones?

One thing which Chinese marketing teams love are cryptic Weibo messages, and you can get more cryptic than the recent post made by K-Touch CEO Rong Xiuli which hints at the following numbers “1234, 2345”, numbers which Chinese bloggers believe to relate to a low-cost 5-inch phone.

The 5-inch phone market is really kicking off, but most of the devices we have seen are high-end models with high price tags, with the exception of ZTE’s low cost U887, but now it looks like ZTE have a competitor in the low cost 5-inch segment.

k-touch launching low cost 5 inch phone

Sources close to Chinese brand K-touch are suggesting that a recent Weibo post made by the companies CEO hints at a new 5-inch K-Touch phone with a price as low as 1234Yuan ($198). At that low price we can expect a dual-core MT6577 chipset, 1GB RAM, 8 mega-pixel camera and even a 720 HD 5-inch display!

If this is the case then K-Touch will be one of the first large brand domestic makers to challenge the smaller factories in this competitive market place!

    Nice price, just wish it used the MT6589 processor instead 🙁

    P.S mediatek has a new 1.2ghz cpu used in an acer 7″ tablet that we have no info about, try and find out some specs for the MTK8317T processor.
