When we think of low-cost, high-end Chinese phones we tend to think of Xiaomi, but from next week the Beijing based company will have a new, Snapdragon 600 rival to contend with.
A Shenzhen based phone start-up have announced that they plan to launch their first Android smartphone next month. A new phone brand from China is nothing new, but the pricing and hardware they are touting is pretty amazing.
Like Xiaomi’s M2S (16GB) this new phone will be priced at 1999 Yuan ($320), but will feature a larger 5-inch, 1080 HD display, along with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 CPU and 2GB RAM. The Shenzhen phone will also get a 13 mega-pixel rear camera (the 16GB Xiaomi has an 8 mega-pixel shooter), 5 mega-pixel front and will run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
