First round of iOcean X7 pre-orders ends

iOcean have closed the first round of pre-orders for the 5-inch, 1080 iOcean X7 Android phone.

Gizchina News of the week

Pre-orders and pre-sale lotteries are a common way for Chinese phone makers to drum up enough hype, and custom while allowing them to sell only a handful of smartphones at a time. This method was first employed by Beijing based Xiaomi back in 2011, and is now used by hundreds of domestic manufacturers include Jiayu, Neo, Newman, Oppo, and iOcean.

The pre-orders for the ‘Youth’ version of the iOcean X7 finished today, and although we don’t know how many were on offer it’s safe to say all available phones have found a home and then some!

Customers who successfully ordered the quad-core, 1080HD phone can look forward to them arriving in April.

    Pre-order is getting old,why don’t they just stock a proper number of units? How hard is it to stockpile a warehouse?

      The 5inch fullHD screens are in large demand and if you’re not a name then you can expect to be lower on the priority list. Look on the good side, we’ll get to see whether it’s OGS and how good the BSI sensor is.
