5.5-inch Newman K2 real photos and specs

Newman are one of the few Chinese phone makers which leak their products and announce them in a sensible time frame! The 5.5-inch Newman K2 appears to be no exception!

A few days ago we reported on a new Newman phone model named the Newman K2. The phone expands on the already popular K series range of phones and will be the first phone in the Newman line up to boast both a 1080 display and 1.5Ghz quad-core MT6589T Turbo chipset!

The latest spy photos of the Newman K2 give us a better idea of what this new phone is going to look like, the answer is very similar to the UMi X2! If the K2 didn’t have the chrome strip around the edge (and the large 5.5-inch panel) the Newman phone and the UMi X2 would look almost identical.

Specifications are similar to the UMi X2 also with both phones offering FHD screens, 1.5Ghz chipsets 13 mega-pixel rear camera, 2GB RAM, 32GB ROM and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

  • 1.5Ghz quad-core MT6589T processor.
  • 2GB RAM (1GB option also).

    Not a fan of the Samsung-esque shape. Prefer the old generic rectangle with curved edges like the K1 and N2. Hopefully this doesn’t happen to the N3 when it comes out.

    Also hoping that it comes with LEWA, and not stock like in the picture.
