4.5-inch Narudo Lando X01 boasts Sony 13 mega-pixel camera and stylish CNC body


Narudo are a new brand to us at Gizchina, but according to their website their dual-core Qualcomm Naudro Lando X01 has been on sale since last year, let’s take a look at the specs.

The Narudo Lanbo X01 is a very stylish phone. From it’s 4.5-inch display with narrow 2.44mm borders to the 8.8mm thick unibody construction made from CNC’d alloy, which tapers to just 3.8mm! It all seems very impressive.

Sandwiched between the 4.5-inch 720p display and the alloy body, the Lando X01 is powered by a dual-core 1.5Ghz Qualcomm MSM8660 CPU with 1GB RAM. There is also 4GB of built-in storage plus room for an SD card reader.

It is not clear if this is the same Exymor Pro unit found the Oppo Find 5, but according to the specs it can capture 1080p video at 30FPS.

Another nice touch is the fact the Narudo have actually listed which networks the phone will run on, which according to their official website is all 3 major Chinese carriers plus any carrier which use the following frequencies: GSM/GPRS/EDGE/850/900/1800/1900MHz, WCDMA: 2100MHz, CDMA2000 1xEV-DO: 800 MHz.

Other nice touches include the custom Android 4.0 ICS ROM featuring their own “Blue” UI, Bluetooth 4.0 and built-in virtual assistant software and voice controls.

Pricing isn’t cheap for the X01 with the current retail price being 2480 Yuan ($398), but if the quality and attention to details is to be believed then is could be worth the extra and seems to be a much better by than the MT6577 equipped Vivo X1.

    So, is it Narudo Lando X01 or Naudro Lando X01 or Narudo Lanbo X01?

    • Narudo is the brand. Lando X01 is the model.

      Narudo is the brand in English. In Chinese it’s Landu. The phone is the Shangji X01. The borders are not 2.44mm…that’s to where the front panel meets the edge of the metal frame. This new “narrow border” truth-bending on the part of manufacturers is getting tiresome. The CNC case might taper to 3.8mm, but it’s 8.8mm thick in total. It uses a Snapdragon S3 MSM8660, same as the original Xiaomi.

    Thanks for clearing that up.
    What’s your opinion on 5″ 1080p phones? Worth it over 4.5-4.7″ 720p? I’m considering one of the two. Dunno if the extra cash is justified though.

    • If you don’t ever use a 5-inch phone you want miss it, but if you try one you might feel their is no going back 😉

    I’m looking at the Huawei Honor 2 and the Ascend D2. Xiaomi Mi2 and Nexus 4 have proven difficult buys. A 32gb Find 5 would be very convincing,but with 16gb already $500 I don’t know. Looks like MWC is the only thing that can clear my thoughts.
