HI5X a 1080, MT6589T Turbo powered HTC Butterfly clone

Chinese phone makers seem to be smitten with the design of the HTC Butterfly and are now offering their 1080p Butterfly wannabe’s in Mediatek MT6589T Turbo spec.

Phone maker Hiwave are now listing an updated version of their flagship phone called the HI5X. Like previous version the phone measure in at 140 x 70 x 9.05mm and has the same red trim as the HTC Butterfly. In fact it even offers a 1920 x 1080 display like the Butterfly and quad-core processor!

In this case though a 1.5Ghz Mediatek MT6589T SoC powers the phone with 1GB RAM and 4GB ROM. Internal storage is a little disappointing but the phone makes up by boasting a front 5 mega-pixel camera, 13MP rear, Android 4.2.1, dual SIM support, SD card reader and a price tag of just 1299 Yuan ($211).
