    I think that in description of Mtk 6589 processor I read that, this processor can’t support 8mp front camera, only upto 5mp…….!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Which is why I’m hoping it’s MTK6589T.

    Why doesn’t India have such startups/manufacturers!? Its really sad when we see such good specs at such lower price! 🙁

      India concentrate on IT services and not manufacturing.

    1GB of RAM just doesn’t cut it, particularly with only a couple of apps running in the background.
    What does an extra gig of RAM cost anyway?

  6. June 18, 2013

    Wait for some months, by end of Q3 this year, 2-4GB of RAM will be common on phones and 2014 will see a lot of them.
