The iOcean X7 has only been on the market for a few months, but already a refresh is in the pipeline, one that features a 1.5Ghz Mediatek MT6589T Turbo processor!
UMi, JiaYu, Zopo and now iOcean have all confirmed that their flagship phones will be released with the more powerful Turbo MT658T SoC from Mediatek. It’s not clear why such an early update is happening, but some suggest shortages of the standard quad-core chip have forced manufacturers to fast forward through their roadmaps.
iOcean’s updated Turbo X7 will be named the iOcean X7 Elite and features not only the faster quad-core chip but additional RAM bringing the total up to 2GB. Internal memory has been boosted to 32GB ROM and the rear camera is now a 13 mega-pixel sensor rather than the 8MP found on the Youth model.
Early Antutu Benchmarks show that the X7 Elite is going to be quite the performer with a score of 14,230, in spite of the 5-inch FHD 1080 display! iOcean have been pretty good for launching their phones shortly after leaks and announcements, let’s hope they stay true to form with their latest handset!
