Quad-core Tegra 3 Beidou Little Pepper Q1 Unveiled for $160


We knew it was only a matter of time before the quad-core, Tegra 3 equipped Beidou Little Pepper Q1 would arrive, so when the phone launched this weekend we weren’t all that surprised.

Beidou cut their teeth in the phone market early last year with their dual-core Little Pepper, and then just before the end of the year they launched a 5-inch budget phone, but this is the first model with a quad-core processor, and one which is comparable to bigger brand phones.

It’s good to see the Nvidia chip being used as it has proven performance and isn’t likely to suffer from shortages like the new Mediatek chip likely will.

Beidou are really offering a bit of a bargain with their latest phone. For $160 we get some real stand out features such as a SD card slot, powerful performance, good size screen and larger than average battery, features which more costlier phones sometimes ship without.

On paper the Q1 appears to be a value packed phone, and one which is likely going to see strong demand in the weeks before the Chinese New Year!

    Now that is a great phone, hope they have it available in black. Much faster than cortex a7 1.2ghz that the mt6589 has. I want one!

    Chinese phones are better and better and give us a lot of options to select (a problem 🙂 )this is a great option, a better battery and gorilla glass would be the perfect combo! However is still a deal!!!
    I had a sopo zp200, amoi n820 (yet) waiting for my jiayu g3 (traveling) all of them has not support for 3g band in Argentina! Damn why not quadband for 3g too?
    Anyway i will be chosing chinese phones 🙂

    I’ve been following news from this mobile since it was first announced months ago! (I mean Beidou + Tegra3).

    But I haven’t read an important thing for me about this phone: does it have HDMI-out? because when I’m home I usually use it for playing games on TV, and my current Changhong Z-Me does the job very well despite of having 1Ghz Snapdragon S2 and 512MB of RAM.

    Otherwise, so pity I would have to search other model to buy.

    Nice job Abbie!
