iOcean X7 pre-order begins March 6!

iOcean plan to being preorders for both the ‘Youth’ version and ‘Premium’ version of the X7 on March 6! It hasn’t been disclosed just how many of the phones will be available in the first batch, but expect the phone to be short supply and high demand!

    Andy what about supports WCDMA. Do you know anything about it?

      The first question is the most important one for us guys in Europe (WCDMA). Having only 2G could be much of a problem.

    • March 1, 2013

      It uses the MT6589 chipset, so it will support 850/1900/2100 WCDMA just like the MTK 6573, 6575, and 6577 phones.

      • March 2, 2013

        In aliexpress there is a preorder and there is written 3G: WCDMA 900/2100MHz so maybe will support umts 900mhz, i hope so.

        • March 3, 2013

          Yes it will, my list was wrong! MTK 657x all support:
          2G: 850M/900M/1800M/1900MHZ
          3G: 850/900/1900/2100MHz

          Yet for 3G/WCDMA the retailers usually state 850/2100 or 900/2100 for some reason. For example, I have a THL W6 and an unbranded A5 (MTk6573 iPhone) and if you go look on retailers on both phones they will usually state two of those frequencies.

          Heck even the official THL’s site ( only states 850/2100. I guess the chinese see 850/900 as one frequency.

    Starting to like iOcean more than Umi XII since the battery is 3000mAh, I’m waiting for the ROM, definitely a monster if it has 32GB.

      What the hell are you talking about the sheng is only 2000mah and I don’t think you know what ROM is.

      • Mochiza

        2000mAh is the youth version, the non youth version is 3000mAh, check it out at the table up there. ROM is some sort of storage right? Correct me if I’m wrong.

    The biggest questions are the type of the display, is the glass tempered and how it will handell full HD.

  4. March 1, 2013

    the youth version has got 32 gigs internal memory then obviously premium version wil come with same capacity…

    • nonamenever
      March 1, 2013

      why are you so sure premium version will have 32 gigs as well? could be 64, although this would be way to good value to be true!!

      However, if it is 32 gigs as well, why didn’t they announce it for both?

  5. March 1, 2013

    So guys, is there any way to order for someone from Europe?

    I don’t think the specs will hold.

    I agree with Allanitomwesh
    Anyway ordering from europe in a chinese mission imposible
    I quess the lack of support is the single most improntat reason not to buy chinese phone

    haha…I have been a UMI X2 fan but I am seeing something better here :)))

    I will go with the iOcean Youth because I am simply looking for the 1080p display, and at $160 what can I say?

    I don’t need 13.1 MP as the 8MP on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is fine and the Nikon D800 takes spectacular pictures..and every experience I am looking for in a phone I can get on the Note 2 except the 1080p display

    Thanks for the post

    Andy Im in Europe. Pls provide hints on how to preorder this – site you gave us is in chinese.

    Will this X7 comes with Google Playstore ? China phone without it really made me headache here

    • nonamenever
      March 2, 2013

      Not really a big concern for me, as you can install Playstore on any android device just like any apk. Sheng should keep concentrated on awesome hardware, if it does the community will provide custom roms for sure, and no one cares any more if stock rom has gapps or not 🙂

    I take it this is yet another quad core from China that doesnt support aws? Yet to find a mid range priced phone that supports the 1700 mhz freq required for TMO data
