TCL’s entry-level quad-core TCL P606 could be priced as low as $175 and will be available in retail chains soon.
Domestic phone maker TCL have grand designs on becoming a tier one phone maker in the next 3 years! Their flagship TCL S850 is just 6.45 mm and has been picked up by Alcatel as the One Touch Idol and the TCL brand is growing from strength to strength both locally and internationally.

TCL haven’t forgotten about their core audience though, and will be releasing an entry-level quad-core, 4.5-inch phone later this year. The TCL P606 will be available from retail stores in high-streets across China at a rumoured price of just 1088 Yuan ($176).
The P606 isn’t quite as thin as the S850 but with dimensions of 130.3 x 67 x 8.99mm it’s by no means a porker either. Behind the 4.5-inch display beats a MTK quad-core CPU, with 1GB RAM, 4GB ROM , micro SD card reader and dual-sim support. Camera’s are 8 mega-pixel rear and 1.3 mp front, and the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean install has been customised to make use of Baidu’s cloud services.
