The Koobee Max is an impressive 5-inch 1080 phone with quad-core processor. It also manages to pack a 13 mega-pixel rear camera with large f2.2 aperture plus the latest, greatest, version of Android Jelly Bean 4.2 comes as standard.
All in all the Koobee has the makings of one of the great MTK phones of 2013, and a phone which now be attracting potential UMi X2 customers who are sick of the delay. But that is not the case and here’s why.
Gizchina News of the week
The Max only features 1GB RAM rather than the UMi’s 2GB, the overall design and branding looks rather cheap, but the price is actually very high at 2500 Yuan ($402)!
Koobee do have a few tricks up their sleeve though as the Max measures in at a just 8mm, the 5-inch display has a Gorilla Glass protective finish and the quad-core MT6589 CPU is running at a faster 1.5GHz rather than 1.2 as we have seen in most current phones!
The Koobee Max should be available in stores and online from April.[ Source ]
Oww with that price is quite a downer ..
Seems that only Umi and Jiayu net the design win with their tiny bezel this time around so far.
Jiayu win for the design for sure and I like it !
1.5ghz 6589, will belive it when I see it in benchmark action , also design is plain, and the pice just kills it off
This is very dissapointing !!! This phone looks 1000 miles different than the original prototype:
If KooBee was aiming to launch this original prototype, this phone (not the actual now) was going to be the best looking Chinesse Android Phone and with best looking bezel EVER !!! BUT KooBee disapointed their customers/fans. I tuelly belive that the current KooBee Max is only Max and I hope the prototype from the pictures that I’m providing will be the CoolMax model wich will launch later with MTK LTE Chip !!!
gsm 900/1800/1900MHZ? NO 850MHZ??
