A look at the Neo phone factory in Shenzhen

Have you every wondered what it is like in a Chinese phone factory? Well wonder no more as we have obtained exclusive photos of the Neo production line in Shenzhen.

Our contact met with Neo yesterday to take a look at the Neo N003 prototypes and discuss details of Neo’s first quad-core 1080 phone. While there he managed to get a look at the production line and take some photos.

He wasn’t permitted to take photos of the N003, however we do get a good look at the Neo factory floor where staff appear to be producing the Neo Hua Cai, an entry-level 4.5-inch phone with dual-core MT6517 processor priced at 599 Yuan ($100).

It’s an interesting in site to a Chinese phone factory, even more so when you think that the people in these photos will soon be assembling the N003, which many of you plan to purchase.

    I’d love to see inside the Foxconn operation in Shenzhen or Samsung Gumi facilities one day – the scale alone would be fascinating.

        How stupid is to post a video with a password? And more than that, with an incorrect password?
