We’re not big fans of 3D phones here at Gizchina, but with a guesstimated price tag of just 999 Yuan ($160) the Small Bee 2 might bake for an alternative to similar quad-core phones such as the UMi X2, iOcean X7 and JiaYu G4.
As the Small Bee (or should that be Obese Bee?) comes equipped with a 3D glasses free 3D display, you would expect there to be some serious cost cutting measures on this phone, but actually the specs look pretty good!
The display is the latest generation Kivu G3D display and at 5.3-inches it’s pretty immense, however one of the few areas the phone has taken a hit is in resolution and that large panel only sports a QHD level resolution. If you can look past the lower than average res and the 3D though, the Small Bee is quite an attractive offer.

Two versions will be available, both of which will sport a quad-core MT6589 processor and 8 mega-pixel camera (current 8 mega-pixel cameras can offer similar image quality to lower cost 13 mega-pixel units). There will be a choice of either 1GB or 2GB RAM with prices starting at around 999 Yuan ($160). Judging by the thickness we assume there will be a rather large battery powering the 3D screen, but no details of this have been announced
The Small Bee 2 is also expected to launch in major electronics stores in China, so in theory you will be able to walk down the high-street and pick one up. So what do you think? Does the 3D display have you weak at the knees, or are you like us and not really all that fussed?
