If a 4.5-inch display is all you want/can handle on your mobile smartphone, yet to desire the thrill of a quad-core MT6589 there isn’t really much to choose from. However TCL seem to be listening to your shouts as the TCL P606 is almost the phone we want to see!
I say the TCL P606 is almost the phone we want to see, because for some unknown reason they have given the 4.5-inch a QHD 960 x 540 resolution rather than the preferred res of 1280 x 720.
If you haven’t already stopped reading then the TCL P606 makes up for the lack of HD by way of pure grunt and high quality rear camera. The processor in the slim 8.99mm phone is a 1.2Ghz Mediatek MT6589 unit, there is 1GB RAM (fine considering the screen) 4GB ROM and space for a 32GB SD card.
TCL have been nice enough to equip the P606 with dual-sim support, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, GPS, Bluetooth, 1.3 mega-pixel front camera and 8 mega-pixel rear. The dual-sim feature supports both WCDMA and GSM while the JB OS has been modified to use Baidu’s could services and apps.
Pricing for the TCL P606 is currently listed a 1299 Yuan ($208) for a limited time and will rise to 1399 Yuan ($224) after the initial launch period.
