    Holy Crap..5.6mm?! O_O
    Now that’s what I call a “buzzer” 😀

  • Abir

    WOW………………. hope its not priced like the vivo phones

  • Markoff

    I can imagine the battery, for sure not more than 1500mAh or more realistically it will be closer to 1000mAh, this phone will be glad if it can last since morning until evening. also no LED flashlight, bad camera and I guess no Dual SIM

    but yeah, it looks cool although probably not very practical with nowadays batteries

  • Tweetypeety

    yeah but really, everybody can build such a phone when the battery is maybe 1200mAh. Let’s wait for the battery power.

    godamn business stratagies, 99% of these announced phones never start the sales in 6months of time, so whats the use? we get mad if u wait for them like umi x2.
    only advantage to tech. news sites to fill their web pages. really tired of this boring news only stuff which never happen in 6months.
    so better talk only about which r avilable in 1month.
    why still samsung clones?HTC one with front dual spk. is the trend now. hope OEM adopt it ASAP

      What the hell are you doing here then?

    Here at GizChina we get news and “the twitter” on phone that are in development, sometimes even before it is officially announced. If we just wanted to know what was available /now/ – we might as well just visit a shop. Here we get in-depth news on whats to come. Development and all its aspect takes alot of time. If an phone comes out a few weeks/a month after first news – that does not mean it only took that long to develop and get to marked – it probably means that they did good work keeping it “under wraps”.

    Manufacturers usually get sample chips for new technology to use in development of new phones, tablets etc. But even if they finish phone development in 3-4 months, that doesn’t necessarily mean that those SoCs, chips, ram etc used in development – is readily available i production runs yet.

    There are many, many aspects in development that takes a lot of time. And don’t forget about licensing. If you’re not a huge brand with the right contacts and influence, this could take ages too – even with a finished, “fault-free” unit massive stock.

    ok if u still think that writeing few lines with a photo and that too not conformed is great then i can say tech.sites like u are 1st and free stage of advertisement of a phone that avilable known by god only. brands useing ur sites for their next year model & holding us with lies saying its avilable in few days
