$160 1080, 5-inch Ou Sheng X7 spy photos reveal super thin bezel!


The Ou Sheng X7 is the first real rival to the JiaYu G4 we have seen at the 999 Yuan price point. Check out these excellent spy photos of the X7 which show off some interesting design highlights.

If you have been dong your MT6589 quad-core phone homework, then you will already have read about the Ou Sheng X7, and the fact that this latest quad-core phone could be a truly excellent JiaYu G4 alternative.

The last time we reported on the phone, we had only seen a rough idea of the design along with the alleged specifications, but with the Chinese Spring Festival celebrations coming to an end, real spy photos of the phone have finally surfaced.

The photos give us an excellent first look at the Ou Sheng x7 from the front and side, from which we can see that a very thin screen bezel is present along with a very up-market and unique design!

Unlike the JiaYu G4 which looks a lot like a 4.7-inch Xiaomi Mi2, the Ou Sheng X7 sports it’s very own design signature along with a 5-inch full HD 1080 display! The highlights don’t stop there either as a 13 mega-pixel rear camera, 2GB RAM, Android 4.1 and a 2050mAh battery are all present and correct too!

In fact with a specification line-up like this the Ou Sheng X7 could even take on the mighty UMi X2, and even beat the X2 as it is rumoured to go on sale for as little as 899-999 Yuan ($160)!

      Of course, 5000mah battery…I think you need atomic battery so you can use the mobile for a year without needing to charge it. But take care, if you drop it you may die and your neighbours too LOL…

      Don’t ask too much to a 160$ mobile. I’m sure 2050mah is enough for a MT6589 because it is A7 CPU and its power consumption is very very little.

    It will be dual sim since the MT6789 chipset is dual sim by itself.

    Any word on how soon we can expect it on the market?
    Also, is the screen gapless or does it have that dual-coloredness that’s displayed in the 3rd picture? ( Is it like the onex(barely noticable) or is it like the HD2(Severe) in terms of bezel-to-screen color difference ? )

    Battery seems small but considering it’s an armv7 chipset and that the dna is said to have alright battery life i dont see it being too big of a detriment.

    Wow, exciting post. This thing looks awesom as long as you can read the display outside.
    I played with an Experia Z yesterday. 1080p screens are amazing. I want one.

    FYI, the Sony is a non buy item. Super plastic, too light, camera sluggish and didnt see HDR option, annoying on screen buttons. Screen truly great though.

    MT6589 is rather weak for 1080p but perfect for 720p (since it’s of tegra 3’s performance calibre). To top it off 720p is more lenient to battery plus the penalty to image clarity (due to lower res) is minimal at best.

    Jiayu got it right to couple mt6859 with 720p screen, too bad that there is a good chance that they won’t release it (at least not in time)…

      Can’t you just lower the screen resolution yourself with android phone?

    Is the 999RMB price unlocked or is it the price you get when buying from a carrier in china?

    • February 18, 2013

      It’s the unlocked Chinese retail price
